How to link to individual Tweets

Twitter is a big place with lots of opportunities to network and make friends and contacts and generally hang out and chat, but it's also a big place that's pretty confusing.

The first few times I was asked for a link to a particular tweet, I scratched my head for a while and then needed to hunt around to find the instructions on how to do this.

When you know how to do it, then it's pretty simple, but otherwise it's one of those things which isn't exactly that obvious... hence this little post about it.

1. Firstly, you need to click right on the particular tweet in question - not the user name of the person who tweeted it.

2. A little more information appears around the tweet - at the bottom you'll see the magic word 'Details' - click on this.

3. You'll then be taken to a page displaying the tweet and here you can simply copy the url in the address bar at the top of the page, and paste it where you need to.

Hope this is some help and comes in handy...!
