Social Networks , Microblogging

Twitter is an online social networking and microblogging service that enables users to send and read short 140-character text messages, called "tweets". Registered users can read and post tweets, but unregistered users can only read them. Users access Twitter through the website interface, SMS, or mobile device app. Twitter Inc. is based in San Francisco and has offices in New York City, Boston, San Antonio and Detroit.

Twitter was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Evan Williams, Biz Stone and Noah Glass and by July 2006, the site was launched. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, with 500 million registered users in 2012, who posted 340 million tweets per day. The service also handled 1.6 billion search queries per day. In 2013 Twitter was one of the ten most-visited websites, and has been described as "the SMS of the Internet."

You say what you have to say and move on! I have a hard time considering Twitter a "social media" site when people are rarely social at all. I always try to connect with anyone who follows me by following back and sending a message to ask how they're doing but rarely does anyone actually reply. Most of the time they think it's fine to either favorite my tweet or retweet it. Honestly, it's just as easy to reply.

Nonetheless, I have followed some folks on Twitter that have interesting things to say and are there for more than shameless self-promotion. Don't get me wrong, I don't blame anyone for wanting to get the word out there about their business but the whole point of a social media site is interaction, correct? I guess my problems with Twitter are geared more toward certain users instead of the site itself. It is a great platform if people use it properly.

Twitter is great for writing Facebook status updates on a different platform. It's a space to put your one-liners in hopes of passively making it big as a comedy writer by never submitting yourself to any projects or management companies.
Sitting on your ass and writing adorable observations on your completely average life is how you succeed.

Also, I heard the most recent writer on Family Guy got the job because of someone following his Twitter feed.

I believe that it is an absolutely useful tool for a direct communication to the general masses. Not only the celebrities, but government officials, company representatives many other similar people can put forward a statement, that too with just a click of a button.

Attempted to visit the website but unfortunately was not able to navigate to it with the error message stating that the "DNS address could not be found."

Something to look at and fix immediately.

One of the most well-known public broadcasting and news service companies in the world, the BBC has an understandably slightly cluttered site.

However, the top bar navigation works well and the news articles are front and center right on the home page.
