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."

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.

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.

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.

I'm a cord cutter and love hulu. They do a great job of providing up to date programming for most shows and the service is quite reliable. Their original programming isn't quite as good as their competitors, but pretty darn close. My main gripes are, 1) No CBS of CW shows, so I have to use differ...

So, there isn't much to be said other than subscribing to Netflix is almost a necessity if you enjoy television. Their original programming is amazing and they have a great backlog of older television shows and some movies. The only thing I am disappointed about is that their movie selection is s...

I have been a GQ magazine reader for years and their website has just as high quality as the print publication. Now, specifically, they are doing a great job covering the 2017 political climate in a fair and unbiased way.

The History of Byzantium

Good follow up to the History of Rome. Clear Narrative, I like that he generally sticks to mid-length episodes, but alters the length when needed.
