Social media platforms like Twitter are very popular these days. Founded in 2006, it has 100 million active users and 500 tweets per day. Twitter allows you to share short messages, read the latest news, follow celebrities, and find out what’s happening.
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey came up with this idea in 2006 for an SMS-based communication platform, where people could post status updates to stay in touch. At first, the platform was like a normal text message.
However, it increased significantly later. Along with its founder, Evan Williams, Dorsey devised ways to improve the platform for its users. Earlier, Twitter only allowed 140 character updates, but now it allows 280 character updates. In the past, the SMS system was used for messaging, blogging, and networking.
The platform has grown tremendously over the past decade. The purpose of Twitter is to share information quickly. However, that information may not always be true.
