This is a live feed from Twitter - a short messaging service that limits posts to 140 characters.
Here are a couple things to know:
- If you see 'RT' before a post, it means we are resending something someone else wrote. For instance 'RT @cnn Breaking News' would be a message they resent to their readers from CNN.
- Where you see an '@' symbol, it means they are replying to someone else on the service.
-Because the Twitter updates are limited to 140 characters, links are often shortened - so you may see 'http://ow.ly/oEF3' as a clickable link. This will forward you to a longer URL.
