What Is Twitter?
Twitter is a real-time social network that allows you to connect with multiple public streams by following different people from around the world and engage into conversations with anyone you want.
One of the best things about Twitter is that it's free, however it does require maintenance to be able to keep your followers list.
For example if people "Follow" you and then find out that you are inactive or not frequently posting, they may "Un-Follow" you even if you are following them, so make sure you post to twitter frequently.
