Navigating Twitter in the Opera browser
With Twitter integrated into the Opera browser’s sidebar, you can do everything you normally do, but from the comfort of your computer. Below are the main sections you will see when you open Twitter in Opera, and what you can do with them.
Type a message for everyone to see - up to 280 characters. You can also tweet an image, GIF, poll, and emojis, as well as schedule a tweet to be posted at a specific time and date.
This is your main Twitter feed. Here you can see the most recent tweets from the Twitter accounts you follow, along with recommendations. You can also comment, retweet, like or download with each tweet.
Twitter’s explore section presents you with trending hashtags, subjects, people, photos or videos. It’s also where you can search Twitter for specific topics.
The Twitter notifications timeline lets you see your Twitter interactions chronologically. Click the gear icon to set a Quality filter, set Advanced filters, or mute Twitter notifications by key words or phrases. Notifications in the timeline include:
- Your tweets that have been liked or retweeted
- Replies to your tweets
- Mentions of you in tweets
- New Twitter followers
- Logins to your Twitter account
The Twitter messages section is where you instant message your Twitter contacts for private conversations or have group chats in Twitter.
Bookmarking tweets on Twitter lets you keep them for later so you can comment or review them at a more convenient time. When you bookmark a tweet, it shows up in the Twitter Bookmarks section.
You can create Twitter lists in order to see a specific stream of tweets from Twitter accounts you choose. Lists can be public or private, and you can subscribe to other people’s Twitter lists.
Your Twitter profile is where you and others can see your tweets, replies, media and likes, as well as details about your Twitter account.
The Twitter Topics section is where you can follow certain subjects so that you see tweets related to them in your main Twitter feed.
Twitter Moments let you connect multiple tweets into a slideshow-style story that can be pinned, liked, retweeted or embedded like normal tweets. The Twitter Moments section is where you can create moments, or see those that you’ve created.
