Twitter is a popular social media platform that allows users to post and share short messages called tweets. Tweets can be up to 280 characters long and can include text, images, videos, and links to other websites. The platform is widely used for sharing news, opinions, updates, and engaging in conversations on various topics.
Twitter users can follow other accounts to see their tweets in their timeline. Additionally, users can like, retweet, reply to, or quote tweets to interact with the content. Hashtags (#) are often used to categorize tweets and make them easily discoverable by others interested in similar topics.
Twitter has had a significant impact on public discourse, political discussions, breaking news, activism, and marketing. It has also become a platform for influencers, businesses, celebrities, and organizations to connect with their audience and promote their messages.
