What is Twitter and why the BTS use it
Twitter is a social networking site that allows you to send and receive short posts called ‘tweets’. Its primary purpose is to connect people and allow thoughts to be shared with a big audience; companies/organisations use Twitter to increase brand awareness. Twitter has become increasingly popular with academics, students, policymakers, politicians and the general public. Twitter is free to join. Tweets are short messages, which can include links, images and videos.
Twitter users choose to ‘follow’ other users (people/organisations). If you follow someone you see their tweets in your ‘timeline’. You can tweet or retweet information tweeted by others. Retweeting allows information to be shared quickly/efficiently with many people.
