So, you're thinking of joining Twitter, are you? Well, here are some handy tips.

The microblogging site is the reason words like "hashtag," "trending" and "microblogging" are in our vernacular. If you're new to the game, the twittersphere (another word that's entered our lexicon) has chimed in, thanks to the hashtag #AdviceForPeopleJoiningTwitter, which is exactly what you think it is.

If you're wide-eyed and ready to embrace this non-Facebook world of social media, listen up and pay attention because you're about to get an education in how to use Twitter, what to expect from Twitter and how Twitter will play with your mind.

Buckle up. Your head will be spinning 140 degrees -- or, more accurately, 140 characters.
