Tweet Tweet

                         I knew that someday that I would end up tweeting (no pun intended) about Twitter. It really seems as though that some people just can't get enough of it. They like to follow other's and they like to have other's follow them. O.K. so, just what is Twitter? Well it's a website that is owned by Twitter Inc., which offers a social networking and microblogging service, enabling it's user's to send and read messages called "tweets". So, just what are tweets? They are text-based posts of upto 140 character's displayed on the user's profile page. Tweet's are usually publicly viewed, although can be privately viewed.

                            The company is based out of San Francisco, CA.  It was created in March of 2006 and launched that year in July. It is estimated that they have an estimated 190 million user's who send 65 million tweets a day. There are a number of different ways that people send tweets, through the website, their smart phone, ipod touch, ipad, and so forth. I suppose that is why there are a number of different Twitter apps as well. I believe along with Google and Facebook, Twitter played a pivitol part in what transpired in Egypt. What are you waiting for, go on get out there, send some tweets and enjoy your day!
