Twitter is a free social messaging tool that allows users to stay connected through micro-blogs (brief messages up to 140 characters in length). Twitter is often used to give updates about what is currently happening in one’s life, in business and in world news. Twitter is a real-time information network, powered by people all around the world, which lets them share and discover what’s happening. A rich source of constantly updated information, Twitter asks “what’s happening?” and makes the answer spread across the globe to millions immediately.
