Search for #ReplaceWithCourseHashtag' again. Can you see people's username in their tweets?
Tap a @username to see that person's profile and a list of tweets they have made.
If you like what you see you can follow them! There is a follow icon in everyones profile. If you follow someone you will then see every tweet that person makes. When you follow someone Twitter lets them know. When someone follows you Twitter will let you know.
You can unfollow people by tapping the unfollow icon in their profile. Twitter does NOT inform people when you stop following them. So if you are fed up with someone's tweets you can unfollow without having to let them know or explain why.
Take a few moments to look at the different icons on your Twitter App.
Tapping the home icon will take you back to your live stream of tweets.
If a username appears in a tweet, Twitter tells that user they have been mentioned. Mentions are a great way to include other Twitter users you know in your tweets. And is a great way to know when your stuff is being talked about!
