Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called "tweets". Registered users can read and post tweets, but unregistered users can only read them. Users access Twitter through the website interface, SMS, or mobile device app. Twitter Inc. is based in San Francisco and has more than 25 offices around the world.
Advantages: - Twitter is massive. - Every tweet goes to your followers. - Tweets are easy to create. - You can get to the point.
Disadvantages - Twitter is busy. - Twitter is not ideal for visual content. - You are limited to 140 characters. - Not everyone can advertise.
