The internet has changed the communication industry dramatically. Many people are now discovering ways to stay connected through many online services. Websites dedicated to social networking are also increasing. It’s no longer a surprise to find lots of online communities today and it seems that these communities are becoming an essential part of many people’s lives. Are you familiar with Twitter?

Social networking is an addicting activity. Many individuals want to share their lives online and Twitter is one of the sites that allow quick and easy communication with friends and love ones.

Before you can use Twitter, you must have your own profile page. Twitter is a micro-blogging and social networking website. If you want to publish updates or short messages, you can easily do it through Twitter. The updates are called ‘tweets’. The messages are text-based with a length of 140 characters. You can even use your mobile device to send the updates. Your updates are sent to your friends who also subscribe to Twitter and vice versa.

Do you know the Twitter question? Well, the concept of this social network website revolves around that simple question. What are you doing? This is the question asked by Twitter to its millions of users all over the world. Last year (2008), Twitter ranked third among the most loved and most used social network website after MySpace and Facebook. According to compete.com, Twitter has already around 6 million users as of February 2009 and it is still increasing. Monthly visits to the site totaled to 55 million per month.

The simplicity of Twitter makes it extremely popular among individuals of different age ranges. Users are free to choose how they can receive the tweets – through RSS, SMS, mobile web, etc. The applications like Twitterific and Tweetie are also great. Through APIs, you can easily make updates to your profile page without visiting the actual website of Twitter.

Various individuals use Twitter – from professionals to celebrities, and even political figures. Did you know that President Obama used Twitter for his campaigns? Well, aside from the President, celebrities like Stephen Fry, Shaquille O’Neal, and Britney Spears are also using the site. Large companies use the site to promote their product information and updates like IBM, Whole Foods Market, Sun Microsystems, and Cisco Systems. O2, a UK phone network, is currently using Twitter for answering queries and for customer service.

If you want to get substantial information, use Twitter now. Michael Arrington, a TechCrunch expert, suggested that the site can be developed to provide real-time data by turning it to a search engine. However, Twitter wants to remain simple because it is their philosophy. Their team of experts is studying the various requests from their users because there is still room for huge improvement. For now, the site is en effective social network tool that keeps people connected.

Answer the Twitter question now and set up your very own profile page. Once you have your page, you can now keep in touch with friends, classmates, and lost relatives. Wherever you are, you can receive the updates from your friends so you will know what they are doing; and your friends will also know what you’re doing.

If you want to stay connected, use Twitter; visit their online site now and create your profile page. If you’ve used MySpace and Facebook before, you will also love Twitter.
