Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the user's profile page and also on pages of those who follow the original twitter account (i.e. "followers"). To get tweets, one must use one of several options available: to be the follower of a particular Twitter account; to look at a particular Twitter account web-page directly; to receive tweets as an text-message (SMS) on one's cell phone or to use external applications.

What are RSS feeds?
RSS feeds offer an easy way of browsing new content from many different websites in one place. To use RSS (which variously stands for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary), you need something called an RSS reader. The reader aggregates the feeds to which you subscribe, in most cases displaying content in an abbreviated form with a link to the full text or audio/video file.
How do I get RSS feeds?
There are many different ways of viewing and managing RSS feeds. Newer versions of some web browsers - such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and Apple's Safari have simple RSS readers built into them. Alternatively, you can download and install a standalone RSS reader or sign up to a web-based service. You can google a list of RSS readers - both standalone and web-based - for Windows, Mac and other operating systems. Once you've picked an RSS reader, you'll need to choose some RSS feeds. Look out for the RSS icons and , which indicate the presence of an RSS feed.
