Using Twitter Homepage: Step-by-Step Guide
Twitter home page

Your Twitter homepage has five small tabs beneath the "What's Happening" box at left.

Twitter has repeatedly remodeled its Twitter homepage on the Web, creating various ways to use the short-messaging service beyond just sending out 140-character messages in the "What's Happening" box.
