Home Timeline: The timeline is a key component of the user experience. A user’s timeline displays the user’s individual Tweets, as well as Tweets from the users they follow, with the new Tweets appearing at the top of the timeline. The timeline prompts the user to refresh whenever a followed user sends a new Tweet.

Self-Expression Mechanisms Tweet Composer: When a user wants to create a Tweet, they can do so by clicking on the ‘Compose new Tweet’ box or icon, composing a Tweet and clicking ‘Tweet’ to send the Tweet to their followers. Profile: The user profile includes a user’s name, Twitter username, location, Website, photograph and short biography, and also includes lists of the accounts that the user is following, the user’s followers, the user’s Tweets, and media gallery. Lists: A list is a curated group of Twitter users. Users can create their own lists or subscribe to lists created by other users. Viewing a list timeline would show the user a stream of Tweets from only the users on that list. Social Mechanisms Follow: Users select which other users they want to follow based on what interests them. The Tweets of the users they follow are displayed in their timeline.

A Tweet can also be resent, or retweeted, by a user that has received it by clicking the ‘Retweet’ button on the Tweet, which enables users to redistribute the original Tweet to their followers.

Protected Tweets: Twitter also provides its users with the ability to make their Tweets private. A user who chooses to utilize this feature must choose to accept a new follower request before Tweets are visible
