What is Twitter ? Twitter Review
Twitter is an online microblogging and social networking site that enables you to send and read the latest stories, ideas, opinions text-based messages of up to 140 characters, known as “tweets”.
Twitter users can create lists of other Twitter users, grouped by interest, geography or all manner of other things. It is an event coordinator, a business tool, a news reporting service and a marketing utility. You can also see photos, videos and conversations directly in Tweets to get the whole story at a glance, and all in one place.
Twitter to quickly share tweet with social people interested in their products and services, gather real-time market intelligence and feedback, and build relationships with partners, customers and influencers.
It’s about building new relationships with people that you’re not able to do on other social networking sites and it’s also about helping others. The company experienced rapid growth. It had 100,000 tweets per hour and the current record as of 1st January 2013, twitter reaching a record of 33,388 tweets per second. Twitter generated US$139.5 million in advertising sales during 2011 and expects this number to grow 86.3% to US$259.9 million in 2012.
Twitter is a great place for keeping people informed on what you are up to without the need to spend a lot of time crafting an entire post on the subject. Some use it to post interesting links, Some see this as a way to simply report their ’status’ to friends, some use it as a savvy marketing tool. You just say what’s up and leave it at that.
It’s very easy to sign up just pick a user name and email address. Let me be your first friend on Twitter “Follow me”.
In my personal experience “Twitter is for voicing your thoughts and relieving yourself from having to turn them into actions. It is the great capitulation.”
Finally, without a doubt Twitter is the best way to share and discover what is happening right now.
