Write Your First Tweet
What is the tweet? It is like a status that you write on Facebook. You can click on this icon to tweet.
Now there are some words limit for a tweet. And you cannot exceed it. If you want to tweet that is big then write multiple tweets or add another tweet to that particular tweet.
In your tweet you can also use hashtags, using #.
You can use this hashtag so if another person searches for a particular hashtag your post can also come to the search list.
A hashtag can also help you to make some topic trends if other people also use the same hashtag.
See What Is Trending

After clicking on this icon, you can see this screen.
Now you can also see settings of trends.
Click on the settings icon that is on the top.
This screen will appear.
Now the options may be a tick for you. I personally untick the options.
Now you can see trends according to your choice. For Example, you can see what is trending in the United States by clicking on Explore Locations.
So this is a simple guide about trends but it is not the end now. It’s your time to take part in trends.
Take Part In Trends
There are some options to take part in a trend. Just click on a trend and tweet about it. This is very simple to do. If it starts with # it will be automatically written in your tweet.
Secondly, you can also start your own trend by talking about some topic and asking others or encouraging others to talk about it.
You can also be in some groups that start trends.

Talk With Other People
You can also talk to different people by messaging them. There are some accounts that you cannot message.

This screen will appear. Write the name or if you know their Twitter name that starts with @ then write there that name.

Okay, now the second thing is Twitter Groups. You can message multiple people at one time and it will make up a group. Other people may have the option to not accept the message.
People can also add you to their group. And there also may be an option to search for the group but I don,t know about it.
You can make groups with people and can make a plan to start a trend on something.
