What is Twitter?


http://dinoprojektet.se/?kapitanse=jobba-hemifr%C3%A5n-microsoft&534=6f Twitter is a real-time information network that connects you to the latest stories, ideas, opinions and news about what you find interesting. Simply find the accounts you find most compelling and follow the conversations.

Each Tweet is 140 characters long —you can discover a lot in a little space. You can see photos, videos and conversations directly in Tweets to get the whole story at a glance, and all in one place.

Some think that its immediacy makes it ideal for spreading news. Others find it useful to ask questions of their peers; still others, for following what people or topics they’re interested in.

What does it offer me?


  • Twitter offers information

It is a realtime newsfeed that is personalised to all your interests. You can get information on news, local events, celebrities, politicians and other hobbies or interests. It’s like being delivered a newspaper whose headlines you’ll always find interesting – you can discover news as it’s happening, learn more about topics that are important to you, and get the inside scoop in real time.


  • Twitter allows you to keep in touch

It allows your family, friends and others to follow your activity throughout the day and keep up with your life. You may also connect with people in your profession, local shops and events, and most importantly, people who share your passions


  • Twitter gives you a voice

It allows you to comment on matters where you may otherwise not be able to express your views. Simply, if you follow someone, you can send them a message (a ‘tweet’). Many public figures such as politicians tend to have thousands if not millions of followers and they may not respond but they generally do read their messages because a 140 character tweet is easier to read quickly than a lengthy e-mail.


  • Twitter allows you to promote yourself, business or blog

If you’ve written a book or have a business to promote, Twitter is a great way to get your message out. It also helps you network virtually with people in your industry. You can keep up-to-date with the latest industry trends and even establish relationships with people.


  • Twitter allows you to get answers to your questions, quickly

Once you have followers you can send out questions. You can ask for recommendations for local restaurants, technical questions or anything else on your mind. People on Twitter are very helpful and willing to help out.
