Defining the Web: Twitter
Twitter is a micro-blogging and social networking service where users send 140 character length messages (AKA “tweets”) to friends and followers alike.
Twitter has been around since 2006, but has been getting more and more press in the last few years. President Barack Obama used twitter as a publicity tool for the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign, and Ashton Kusher even made the news due to his Twitter battle with CNN.
