Twitter can be an intimidating jumble of # symbols, RTs, DMs, @'s, and other code-like shorthand to a Twitter newbie.
To help get the hang of it, we've put together a Twitter guide for Twitter beginners with nine tips for how to communicate on Twitter, make sense of it, and make the most of it.
Tricks and tips aside, some users suggest the best thing a new tweeter can do is just start sharing. "Just jump in and start engaging (for lack of better cliche word) - and not just with people you know," suggested @Agrinavich. @BrunuM suggested Twitter newbies should just "tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet and tweet."
