Firstly we will go to 'twitter.com' and then click on 'signup', and after that we will enter our basic information like Name, Phone number, Date of birth, and Email address & then click Next. Next step is to enter the OTP which has been sent to our registered mobile number or Email address. After that we will be asked to set password for our new Twitter account, so we'll do it and set a strong password.
Thus, now our profile has been created. After that we will be asked to add our profile picture and then our bio. Bio generally refers to a 160 characters short description about yourself. So we'll add it and then proceed further.
As we click next we will be asked to choose any languages out of all shown in the list. Whichever language we do prefer, we will check mark it and proceed by clicking on Next.
After that Twitter will ask that what are we interested in ie. which are our favourite topics, we need to select some topics to personalize our Twitter experience. Therefore we'll select some of them like Cricket, Football, Indian Actors, Entertainment etc... After this we will follow some of the people which are shown as per we our mentioned interests.
Now our Twitter profile is completely created. Now suppose if we want to set a profile picture for our Technical company or Brand than we can just simply make a new logo & background picture on 'canva.com'. Canvas is the website which contains many type of designs and templates & we can access it absolutely free to create our Logo or Background cover.
We can also add our Website and Location to our profile. It will be shown below our bio section. Now if we want to change our Twitter handle then we will go to 'Settings and Privacy' option, then to Account Information & then username. We will click on username and then change it to as per our requirement.
Now if you want to search any hashtag then we will go to 'Explore' section of Twitter & search it in the search bar. Explore section also displays trending tweets and hashtags. It has different category sections like News, Sports, Entertainment, Covid-19 and others, which contains categorised tweets.
In the 'Notification section' we will be able to see that who have tagged us in their tweets or which mentions we have received.
After that we have 'Messages' option which will show us all the Direct Messages we have received.
Twitter contains one special feature that is known as 'Retweet', it means that we can again tweet the tweet done by someone else. It is a sign made up with two arrows.
