Twitter: Micro-blogging Internet service
Twitter is an American online news and social networking service on which users post and interact with messages known as "tweets".

Registered users can post, like, and retweet tweets, but unregistered users can only read them. Users access Twitter through its website interface, through Short Message Service (SMS) or its mobile-device application software ("app").
