What is Twitter?

Twitter is public and free. Everyone can sign up very fast to Twitter, there is only a few information needed (name, username, password and email). Your messages can be read by anybody. However, he doesn’t even need to log in. Every message is stored in your personal profile, like a diary. The messages are limited to 140 characters.
Twitter is called a short update service. This means, it is easy to update your friends and colleagues quickly of what actually happen. Everyone can choose whether to subscribe update of someone or not. This is called the „Follower and Following principal“
