Introduction to Twitter

Posted on: April 21, 2010

Twitter

Twitter is a social networking and microblogging service that allows its users to send and read messages online for free. Unlike blogging though, Twitter only allows up to 140 characters per post. However, it is a good way to mark down sudden thoughts or to rant about something that is bothering you. It is also a good way to connect and stay in touch with friends. On Twitter, you become friends with another user by following them, their tweets (posts) would then be displayed on your wall when you log on. All users can send and receive tweets publicly and/or privately and can participate in conversations and threads with people all over the world. Celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Lady Gaga, Nicole Richie, John Mayer etc. are frequent users who update their followers with interesting tweets daily. Twitter has been getting a lot of exposure in the media recently and it really is everywhere! (If you see a blue bird on the corner of an ad, it is probably asking you to follow them on Twitter) It’s on the web, news channels, commercials, search engines, blogs etc. Twitter is like the new Facebook but people here in IMG are still somehow reluctant in opening an account. It may seem difficult to use at first but I strongly recommend it as it really is the big thing right now. If you don’t not a Twitter user already, open an account on http://www.twitter.com, you will be sure to be entertained!
