What is Twitter anyway?
Twitter is a social networking and mini-blogging service that allows you to let others know “What’s happening with you” or “What are you doing?” by sending simple text messages 140 characters in length, which are called “tweets.”
Send them to your friends, family members or “followers.”
Twitter is used for both personal and business. It’s a great way to keep in touch with your friends and quickly broadcast information about where you are – what you’re up to and what’s on your mind.
For business, Twitter can be used to broadcast your company’s latest news and blog posts, send them to your products and services page or interact with your customers.
Twitter is yet another phenomenal social site that is used by millions of people; politicians, weather forecasters, entertainers, news and business owners worldwide.
