More Info on Twitter?

Starting off, Twitter is basically a micro-blogging website. Here you can spread your views in a few words. Usually blogging consists of people setting up websites to share their views but here you already have a website and you just need your words and you just get few words to share your views or feeling.

Posting messages are often referred to as “Tweeting” and these messages are called “Tweets”. These tweets can be anything, any news, your feelings or anything relevant to anyone in this universe.

It all started in 2006 when Jack Dorsey came up with the idea “ to create an SMS-based communications platform in which friends could keep tabs on each other by updating statuses”.

Initially, it started as an SMS platform where 140 words were the limit due to mobile carriers.

However, later on, Twitter grew to become a web platform and they kept the word limit because it was aligned with the brand’s identity.

It’s pretty easy to use Twitter whether you are a broadcaster or receiver. You join with a free account and you get a username. Then you can just type in the text box and just tweet hourly, daily or whenever you like. People who follow you and who don’t will see your tweet in their news feed.

Initially the word limit was just 140 words but recently it got increased to 280 words per tweet.

If you are a subscriber then you just have to follow someone to keep your feed updated with their tweets and you can reply to that tweet, like or retweet that tweet.

We got that how to use it why people tweet why don’t they use Facebook or smoother website.

The reason is because of its microblog format. It’s a chance to shout out to the world and revel in how many people read their tweets.

With the growing number of Twitter users sending out meaningful tweets is creating real value for Twitter. It’s a quick stream of updates from the world. It encourages people to step up and share meaningfully with the world to be a journalist in their own world which is not possible with some other platform.

Basically, Twitter is a way to maintain a low-maintenance social connection with others and influence other people in a small or big way.

As everything, Twitter also got its drawbacks and one of the major drawbacks is it’s word limit only.

There’s a danger in using Twitter as your primary source of news, the limited character count, enables Twitter users to spread one-sided information without having the space to offer the full story.

Since this platform is blooming every day it’s important to keep an eye on what you see and identify what’s real and what’s fake because if not then Twitter can be the worst thing we have ever seen in history.

Twitter is growing exponentially and with major celebrities coming on this platform are encouraging their real-world followers to keep up with their idols and that way it’s creating a lot of user base for Twitter but as we said you have to keep an eye on everything because everyone doesn’t come to social media websites with nice intentions whether it’s Facebook, Instagram or its Twitter.
