Twitter is a service for people to communicate and
stay connected through the exchange of quick,
frequent messages. These messages are posted to
your profile or your blog, sent to your followers, and
are searchable on Twitter search.
Twitter lets users engage in conversations with other
users in 140 characters or less.
