How do I find the public timeline in Twitter?

Okay, you are using Twitter and everything is great. But, you keep hearing mention of the term "public timeline" (or, less properly, "public time line"), but where is it? How do you find it?

Easy: Click on "Everyone" on the menu on the right side of the Twitter page. Done. Now you are seeing all of the tweets made by every Twitter user, in real-time. Yeah, that is a lot, but it is a great way to get a feel for what is going on.

Then, once you are totally overloaded by the public timeline, get back to your own "personal timeline", click on "Home". It is all that simple.

Sometimes, people mistakenly refer to their personal timeline as being their public timeline, but there is only one public timeline and it is for everyone.
