screen

One advantage of screen is that it is a default package on most Unixy systems. Thus if you logged into a remote server you are more likely to have screen available for use than tmux.
This is why it is worth learning basics of screen.

Splitting

    Screen window splitting - https://tomlee.co/2011/10/gnu-screen-splitting/​
    Unlike on tmux a shell has to be spawned explicitly after splitting.
    To do a vertical split - Ctrl+a | then Ctrl+TAB to go to the other
    split. Then as usual, use Ctrl+a c to create a window.
    For a horizontal split use Ctrl+a S.
