Twitter

Twitter is a real-time information network that connects you to the latest information about what you find interesting. It is also a way to keep everybody up-to-date with what an individual is doing by using an instant messenger service, the web, as well as with mobile texting, plus other venues.

Messages sent out by twitter are limited to 140 characters which is enough for a quick update.
How was twitter created?
It was created by Jack Dorsey and became an incorporated company in May of 2007. Since then, it has grown to be an Internet phenomenon. It is also known as “microblogging” as it works much the same way as a blog. Once a tweet is posted people can see what you are doing and they can answer in turn.
It is possible to post on twitter with a cellphone, instant messager, such as Yahoo Messenger or MSN Messenger, or through specific websites. You only have to answer one question “What are you doing?”.
Using a Tweeter account
If you want to join Tweeter you only have to create an account, which only takes minutes. Joining to Twitter is free. You only have to complete a profile and upload a picture.  Link the newly created account to a cell phone, web page, or instant messenger program, which allows the user to receive and send messages to and from others. An update that is sent to friends is called a “tweet.”
Twitter can be linked to other social networks, blogs, and websites. For instance, post a blog update and use the Twitter button. The blog entry will be sent to the people specified by the sender. This only works when logged into the Twitter account.
A user can also follow other users as well.

Twitter helps individuals with:

  • Article marketing
  • Social networking
  • Promoting website traffic to specific websites
  • Keeping in touch with people
