You may be wondering what exactly Twitter is. Well, it is essentially a micro-blogging site. There, you blog messages under 160 characters to whomever is following your blog. Simple enough, right?
It is a great way to follow your interests, friends,celebrities, colleagues, etc. One benefit is being on top of everything and first. Before journalists have time to write an article, news is already on the twitter-sphere.
Also, everything is quick and to the point. The maximum tweet is 160 characters and usually concise. This makes it very convenient to read up on the go. You get all your updates in compact little packages. You can usually find links to articles, websites, and content of your interests in those little tweets. It keeps you in the loop, not just with your close friends but with global news and your special interests.
Twitter is simple. It is a simple social media platform without distractions. It is perfect for someone who is busy and doesn't have the time to sit and scroll through a feed of all social connections or search through the news for interesting articles. Just try it. Once you start to get the hang of it, you will be tweeting away.
