What is Twitter
What is Twitter? It is a mixture between social networking and electronic messaging for sharing short messages with a network of friends. Part of its success is due to the integration of its services to use other tools that you can install on your computer.
Twitter is a free web application for microblogging that combines the benefits of blogs, social networks and instant messaging. This new form of communication allows users to be in real time contact with people of similar interests through short text messages.
The idea of Twitter is very simple, it is to inform all of your friends and the world of what you do at each moment. Much of what they define as microblogging or nanoblogging as well equals the updating of a blog with very small entries.
There are people, which take interest to be present in this world..and perhaps this “twitter” will be an opportunity to do it, a new community of “bloggers” , to make “friends.”
The registered users on Twitter send and receive updates from other users by means of short messages that do not exceed 140 characters, via web, mobile phone, instant messenger or through electronic email.
An example of the messages can be of distinct nature, some examples arrange in series, the favorite film that was seen in the cinema, describe listening to a favorite artist, write a joke etc. and all arranged in 140 characters.
