What is Twitter?

basically Twitter is a social networking site that is free. With twitter you are able to micro-blog, which is the ability for users to send updates to others or have their own updates read by others, also known as tweets. The Tweets are basically written text posts that can be up to 140 characters in length, and then displayed on the user’s profile page, they will be sent to anybody in the users network that they want them to be sent to. The people that the messages are sent to are called Followers.

Although, messages can be restricted to those in their circle of friends. Users can send and receive tweets using the Twitter website, Short Message Service (SMS) or external applications. The service is free when using the internet, but depending on your network SMS messages may incur fees.

Tweeter was created in 2006 by Jack Dorsey, since then it has become very popular worldwide. It is sometimes called the “SMS of Internet,” due to the fact that you can send and recieve short messages using a variety of web based applications.

How many people use Twitter?

It is not that easy to find out the number of people using the twitter service because they do not release the number of active accounts they have for privacy reasons. In 2008, Jeremiah Owyang of Forrester Research said that Twitter had up to 5 million users.

In 2009 Compete.com ranked Twitter as the third most used social network, Facebook, MySpace and then Twitter. It also put the number of unique monthly visitors at about 6 million and the number of visits generally at 55 million. A number of other web analytical sites have also, called twitter the fastest growing site on the internet.

Things to consider about Twitter

Keep in mind that Twitter does collect your person information and share it with third parties. Basically Twitter considers your information an asset, and there terms say that they reserve the right to sell it if the company changes hands.

There are a number of Twitter-type services available, such as sending text messages to more than one person at a time. Other services provide Twitter-type functions, but only within a closed network for corporations, nonprofits, universities, and other organizations. It was estimated that there were as many as 111 Twitter-type sites.

Because of the shear size of twitter users there is naturally a potential twitter sale here and there, some users have actually made thousands of dollars recommending things to their Followers.
