How to use Twitter

I use Twitter a lot.  I didn't start off tweeting immediately when I created an account around 5-6 years ago.  But once I acquired my first cell phone, my Twitter usage exploded.  I would tweet about everything and anything that was happening around me.  That hasn't changed today, as I still tweet almost everyday about everything and anything around me, but also around events happening on the internet that interest me.  (My Twitter handle is DdcCabuslay.  Do consider giving me a follow, I promise I'm entertaining #shamelessplug).

It boggles my mind whenever I hear someone say they aren't interested in using Twitter because they don't know what to say on Twitter.  I consider Twitter to be a playground where you can say whatever you want.  While you can attach media such as pictures, videos and links, what makes Twitter special is its 140 character limit per tweet.  You can only say so much just a little less than the character limit of an SMS message.  So, how do you use Twitter?  I'm going to teach you.
