Time 4 Update: 120+ Twitter Commands and Social Media Abbreviations


Last Update: 10-May-2014 (First/Original posting 10-August-2010)

I made these long short list for a client and give all credits for it, to the thousands of people's out there, collecting and/or using them - and thought it might be good to sharing them with you. Many of these appreciations are generally used at the Internet, even Usenet, and long before Twitter was around.

If you have additions, pls feel free to add them under comments, THX
Btw.,
I included some German Kürzel (the client was from Germany), and I hope you do not mind.
