In this article, we will discuss the most popular social media software application is known as twitter.
Like Facebook and Skype, Twitter is also a microblogging and social networking service social media software on which users post and interact with each other with instant messages that are known as tweets. It was created by four colliers named Evan Williams, Jack Dorsey, Biz stone, Noah Glass, and Biz Stone in a software corporation based in San Francisco, California in 2006. Firstly the tweet word limit was just 140 then the company increased this with double means 280 and the video and audio tweets limits up to 140 seconds for most of the accounts. Only the registered users can post, like, and retweet tweets, but unregistered users can only read that which may be publicly available.
When the creators created this, the original project name for this service was twitter by one of its creators’ person Williams with the inspiration of its five characters. There were many suggestions for code names by all its creators but because Evan Williams is the head of the team and therefore they decided it’s suggested name as the domain.
Character word but after creating and launching its first domain during the first six months, its name changed with twitter. According to Evan William, firstly twitter was more used as an information network than a social network.
The prototype for twitter software was developed by programmer Dorsey with his contractor Florian Weber for use as used as internal usage. They are for the employees of a company for only traditional use. After this, all developers have made a contract to acquire Odeo incorporation and make sets as Odeo.com and Twitter.com after confirming by its shareholders and investors.
At the end of the year 2012, more than 100 million users posted 340 million plus tweets in a single day, and during the year 2013, it became the ten most-visited websites and famous as a sentence as SMS of the Internet. After this, the company had more than 330 million monthly active users.
Twitter uses its own experience for more company growth. In 2007 it had 400,000 tweets posted per three months then in 2008 it increased by 100 million tweets. In February 2010, there were 50 million tweets per day with recorded up to 70,000 registered applications, in 2011 it became 65 million tweets. In March 2011, it was 140 million tweets. As noted above Twitter became the third most highly rated social media network in 2009.
In 2008 the twitter’s chief executive officer, Dorsey (the person who first made this software traditionally used for an employee company) saw the startup through two rounds of capital funding for this that is fully backed by the organization. After a few months later Williams who is one of its creators took over charge as CEO and previous CEO Dorsey became chairman of the board.
On October 14, the CEO announced the new CEO of the company and himself changed the method and developed new techniques to improve twitter strategies. After Twitter announced that it had hired a former Google executive known as Matt Derrell to become the new director of business agency development.
Twitter messages are publicly visible but senders also can restrict message delivery to only to be followers. Every user can mute users that they do not wish to interact with and block their accounts for viewing. People can subscribe to tweets of other people as follows and subscribers who follow them are called followers.
The company also allows users to update profile data with their mobile phones smartphones and tablets. An American news magazine that is very popular with the name of “The Time” publishes an essay about Twitter and the last paragraph’s bold sentences are “twitter is easy”.
Twitter makes some principle of followers that when we follow another Twitter person then tweets appear in reverse on the main page. For example, we followed 30 people so their tweets appear by scrolling on the page. When we follow any users, the software gives notification to the person to whom I follow and also provides an option to follow back. After a long time of posting the first-ever tweet on Twitter, the CEO of the company Jack Dorsey have listed to sale in 2021 and the highest bid for the tweet which cost $2.5 million came from a Malaysian businessman and the CEO of Oracle software company then board of directors sale this to both and with receiving certificates to buyers that were digitally signed and properly verified.

It also offers trending hashtags the first two famous hashtags are #Thatsafrican and the second is #thingsdarkiessay after this now there are thousands of hashtags used by its users.
