Keywords
Using hashtags to communicate with the twitter bot.

Every tweet should contain at least one keyword, along with any required information. The options outlined below are in the following format:
Functionality : #tag/#alternativetag, required information, [#optional tags], [optional information]

Registration : #register, #swedish/#french/#it/#ru/etc
Tags in brackets are optional.
Example: "@langchallenge I'm going to #register and study #French for the Language Challenge."

If participating with multiple languages, simply tweet a new registration for each one.
Example: "@langchallenge I'm also going to #register for #Swedish."

Withdrawing : #giveup, [#language]
If you don't want to change the challenge but withdraw completely, use this.
Be Careful! because all associated data will be removed along with your entry in the participants table.
Example: "@langchallenge #Swedish is too hard to pronounce. I #giveup."

Reading : #book/#read, [#swedish/#french/#it/#ru/etc], [123 page/s], ["book title"]
A book automatically counts as 50 pages. If you only read part of a book, simply write how many pages you read, followed by the word 'page(s)'.
If you read a really long book, it will automatically be split into the appropriate number against your score.
If you want to say which book you've been reading, encase the title in quotation marks.
If you're studying multiple languages, you need to specify which one using the language code.
Examples: "@langchallenge I just read a #book."
"@langchallenge I just finished reading a #sv #book with 60 pages. It was called "The Invisible Book" and I kept losing it."

Watching : #film/#movie/#watch(ed)(ing)/#listen(ed)(ing)/#audio/#radio, [#swedish/#french/#it/#ru/etc], [123 min(ute)/h(ou)r/s], ["film title"]
A film automatically counts as 90 minutes. If you watch part of a film or a tv series, simply write how long it was followed by the word 'minute(s)', 'min(s)', 'hour(s)' or 'hr(s)'.
If you want to specify which film you watched, encase the title in quotation marks.
If you're studying multiple languages, you need to specify which one using the language code.
Examples: "@langchallenge I just watched a #movie #ru."
"@langchallenge I just saw the first 20 min of a #film ("The endless snowstorm"). Really strange Indie movie!"

Editing : #edit(ed)/#update(ed), [123 page(s)/minute(s)/etc], ["updated title of item"]
If you made a mistake in a tweet, you can change the number of pages, the time, the number of words, or the title by using this command.
You must reply to the tweet you wish to edit so that the system knows which one you're referring to.
Find the tweet in your stream and then click on the "reply" button just below it, beside the blue arrow.
Examples: reply: "@langchallenge The author wrote another chapter and #updated the book online, now I've read 260 pages total!\"
reply: "@langchallenge I misread the title and need to #edit it to be "How to FIND your monocle in 30 seconds".\"

Deleting : #undo(ne)/#delete(ed),
If your mistake isn't fixable or you no longer want to count an item, use this command to remove the tweet from your list entirely.
You must reply to the tweet you wish to remove so that the system knows which one you're referring to.
Find the tweet in your stream and then click on the "reply" button just below it, beside the blue arrow.
Example: reply: "@langchallenge I lied about this update and now feel very guilty, so I'm going to #undo it."
