Twitter's significance in society
Twitter has become one of the most esteemed forms of social media as it focuses on short but solid statements by limiting the amount of characters a user may utilize in each and every post. Aside from the limitations, Twitter is engineered to simplify the forms of posts to make everything more readable and interesting.
Appealing to the younger generation's perspective, every post on twitter looks like a glimpse of something more and if something catches your eye, that is when you dig deeper to find more about that person, post, or thread.
Twitter aims to save time on things you are interested in and if you follow the right people or pages on Twitter, you will only find headlines or short sayings which you can automatically filter based on whether or not you are interested in them.
