I try to tweet in English as much as possible from this month. However, I sometimes feel inconvenience about Twitter. Because it isn't entirely satisfactory for me to type only 140 words compared with this site. Of course,I understand that typing short sentences is the real pleasure of Twitter.

Then, I found a list of abbreviated words in a Twitter's guide book I bought the other day. I had never known them until them. I tried to remember them right away. But, I always forget them when I try to use them actually. Well,I haven't remembered smiley of English yet.It's hard for me to do it because it doesn't resemble Japanese one.

How do you remember abbreviated words or smiley? I only to use them as much as I can,don't I?
