Hi, I'm Jennifer Maggiore with RedBalloonInc.com, and today I'm going to explain what the star and arrows mean on Twitter. On Twitter, the double arrows allow you to retweet someone else's tweet which means you'll repost what they have published. When the arrow is green, that means that you have retweeted that comment. The single arrow is for replying to someone else's tweet which creates a tweet from your account directly in response to another's tweet. The star next to a tweet is for making a tweet a favorite, which will bookmark the tweet together with other favorites and allow you to refer back at a later time by clicking favorites. You can find that on your profile. This is basically the equivalent of liking a post on Facebook. By clicking the star making it yellow, you're marking it as a favorite. To unmark it, you'll simply click the star again until it goes back to white. I'm Jennifer Maggiore with RedBalloonInc.com and that's what the star and arrows mean on Twitter.
