It’s only because many users aren’t aware of all the advantages of Twitter. It’s possibilities somehow remain unused. There’s a lot of potentials it carries, and it’s just a matter of time when people will fully discover them.

In this matter, it might seem similar to Facebook, only the difference is in the limited number of characters a message can assemble of (140).

Therefore, every short message shared on this platform is long enough to set our priorities in a split second.

The messages shared are symbolically called “tweets”, connecting them to the logo of a bird. And the content can be whatever users feel passionate about. Shoes, food, travel, politics, etc. Based on the quality and subject of tweets, people managed to climb quite far along the fame ladder. So far, everyone knows the former president of the USA, Donald Trump, is by far one of the most famous faces there.

Based on the content of the messages people can choose to follow you or not. A lot of businesses are present, as is the case with other platforms, and use different tips and tricks to attract followers. Which brings us closer to the subject we are writing about.
