Aiming to answer the question, “what are you doing?”, Twitter provides a method to broadcast your thoughts via the Internet using bite-sized, 140 character messages. Think of Twitter as a miniature online journal (blog) which displays your messages in a historical time line format.
Messages are made available to all Twitter users with thousands of updates streaming in at any given moment. Users who elect to “follow” your messages are more easily able to view your history and send their own comments.
The majority of Twitter users simply want to share their life activities, as mundane as they may be, with friends, family, and even strangers. However, an ever-increasing group of people and firms are using Twitter as a marketing tool for gathering raw consumer intelligence or creating a platform to share information in real-time. As an example, Dell Outlet notifies users via Twitter of its daily clearance specials.
