Creating an account

First of all, you need to create an account with Twitter. It’s free of charge – all you need is an email address and an idea of the Twitter user name you want (which must be no longer than 15 characters and not already in use by someone else). Twitter has a brief step-by-step guide to setting up an account.

You can use Twitter by logging in to the website, but on smartphones or tablets, many people find it much more convenient to download an app (either the official Twitter app, or a third-party Twitter client) to view and create tweets.

Take care when choosing who to follow so that they’re people whose tweets you’re interested in, otherwise you’ll soon feel overwhelmed by irrelevant messages and may wonder why you bothered with Twitter! Having said that, you can unfollow people at any time if you find that their tweets aren’t relevant to you.
