    Default Anyone using Twitter?

    Ive never understood Twitter how it works, all I hear on TV is you can tweet us at...blah blah!

    Ive visit some twitter pages and it clearly shows what the person has posted and the replys. How does the privacy system work on twitter and is the main aim of the site to just get feedback and inform others.

    I used to have a twitter account, but then had too many people following me so I deleted the account.......just kidding!

    Ive never used twitter and not much into social networking sites. All I know its a social networking sites, where you can follow people even celebs, but I dont know how their privacy policy works.

    Yes, I have a Twitter. It's a lot of fun. You might get some bad people trying to follow you, but all you have to do is block them. It's a great way to meet new people, and keep in touch with old friends. You can even spy on one your friends. I do that all the time. My friends always say they're going out, I just go on Twitter and see if they tweeted about it or not. Twitter honestly is a lot of fun, there's always some short clips of funny stuff, or even hair tutorials. You can just tweet about your day if you're angry, happy, or even depressed. You can reply to your friends tweets that you think are funny. I really suggest to get a Twitter, it's one of the biggest social media sites.

    I am a newbie in Twitter World and I am trying to familiarize how it works. As far as I know Twitter is the best reliable source of trending issues. With the use of hashtags (#), a certain issue can be popularly known depending on how people interact with it throught short messages or "tweets". That popularity is commonly known as to "trending".

    While I have got a Twitter account I have to say I very rarely use it. I understand how to and I've followed a few people and they follow me back, but I have to say I'm not entirely convinced by it.

    I am using Twitter. I have created an account for my forum. I just share some interesting tech news and information about my forum.

    I don't have any personal account, I will never create that kind of account.

    I got a twitter account that is also linked to facebook. I use flipboard on my phone. Normally I post via Flipboard app to Twitter that then gets reflected in Facebook. That way, 99% of my friends get the post, either directly in twitter or in facebook.

    I think that's another reason why I use Facebook more than Twitter, I simply have more friends on there than I do on Twitter.

    Social media I think is all about your connections and the one you have most on will always be the most popular.

    Even I find it a bit complicated and it took me some time to understand. Though, its not as attractive as Facebook, but still its a good way to connect with people worldwide and many official pages. But, I don't use it often, instead, I love using facebook because of its ease of use and a wide friend circle.

    Agreed. On Facebook I can play games, create a group, a page. I can chat with my friends with a few click. We are using real names
    Twitter is only for famous people.

    @Preeti_20 - Twitter, as the name suggests is for "tweets" i.e. 'small messages', which you might want to share publicly. That's one part of it. You can also send "messages" to other account holders on twitter, which is a different feature and that is what it meant when you mention about it in your original post,

    Well, that was the aim initially however, once the traffic to the website is increased - it is being used as advertisement media also by product owners. OTOH, what else do you think should the use have been?

    If you hear about the word "trending", it became a popular word in the internet after Twitter. You can see what's the most talked about topics worldwide or even in your own country. Nevertheless, the "talked about" stuff was often abused due to repeatedly retweeting so it can't be said that what's trending is really what people are talking about. Then include the authenticheats and similar stuff.
