How Well Do You Know Your Twitter Etiquette?

Twitter has seen a lot of change over the last year or so, including the addition of an official way to thread tweets, aesthetic changes like going from square profile pictures to round and the creation of the Explore tab on the mobile app, which combines trends, Moments and search in one area.
