Follow/Follower/Following: When you "follow" someone on Twitter, you'll see their Tweets in your Twitterstream. If they follow you, you'll see theirs.

Essential Twitter VocabularyTweet: A message of 140 characters or less that is displayed to your followers on Twitter and included in search results.

Twitterstream: The feed of others' Tweets that you see when you log in to Twitter.

@reply: If you post another user's username with an @ symbol directly prefacing it, that text will show up as a link to the other user's Twitter page. They'll also be able to see your Tweet by clicking where it says @theirusername on the side of their Twitter page. When you use the small arrow in the lower right corner of a Tweet to reply to that person, you've sent an @reply.

8DM: A DM, or "Direct Message," is a message that is sent to another user and can only be read by the recipient and the person who sent the message. You can only DM individuals if they are following you.

Hashtag: Think of this as a "subject line" for your Tweet. A hashtag is a word or series of words (no spaces or punctuation) preceeded by a pound sign and referring to the topic or category of a Tweet. For example, I could link to this post and tag it #vocab.

RT: A RT, or Retweet, is the redistribution of another user's tweet to your own network. Twitter etiquette dictates that a retweet should be proceeded with "RT @originalpostersusername." For example, to enter the AC Twitter Challenge, post the following Retweet: "RT @acnews Take the AC Twitter Challenge!
