Before getting into the details a bit of overview:
 
 
* You basically can choose at any one time to have one two kinds of selects ( selections, reports, views ) of the data:
 
** Focus on the full text of the tweet.
 
** Focus on the vocabulary/concordance of the tweets.
 
** This choice are make when you pick a "Select Type"
 
 
* In any case you have a range of other choices you might make:
 
** What sort of output you want: csv files ( viewable automatically in your system editor ), html files ( viewable automatically in your browser ) Message output ( viewable in the message area of the application )....
 
** Selection criteria on type of tweet or type of word ( see information below, and help for each select )  To see the help and selection criteria choose a select type an press <About It>, the information will be displayed in the message area.  Different selection criteria apply to different select types.  To better understand the selections you should refer to the description of the database at: '''[[Twitter Analysis DB Details]]'''.

* <Append To Output> A dropdown that lets you append one selection to another.  Selections are generally written to a file, and in the standard case the file is overwritten each time you run a selection.  Using this you can append various selection to each other.  Since different formats use different file names, this only "works" for files of the same format.

* <Turn on Slider Mode> In this mode any change in the date will kick off a selection of data.  The intention here is that will be most useful for data displayed in the message area.  Additionally there is a selection ( currently called Message Area Tweets ) that is optimized for the display there.  So you might want to try out this feature with that report, output to the message area, and turn on the slider mode.  Now slide the date around, on my computer updates are completed in less than a second.  All of the select criteria that normally are in effect are still in effect.  The control is a toggle, so turn off in the same way you turn it on.

* <Turn on Slider Mode> A great new innovation that does not work yet, so who knows?
