Twitter is a social networking platform that allows users to send and read 140-character messages that are called tweets. Anyone can read tweets on Twitter, but you have to be a registered user of Twitter in order to send a tweet. Twitter has gained more popularity over the past couple years and as of 2015, it has more than 500 million users.

With the rise in popularity, there have been events that have threatened to crash Twitter, as people are sharing their thoughts more quickly (and in shorter form). You can always find things trending on Twitter, like Love Wins for the Supreme Court decision on gay marriage and the NBA Finals.
