Twitter | What are you doing?
Twitter is the world's most popular microblogging service. By signing up for a free account at Twitter.com, you are allowed to send 140 character messages (called "tweets") to your friends that follow your stream, and you can follow the streams of others. Messages are public to anyone by default, but you have the option of protecting your updates. In addition to your real life friends and acquaintances, a multitude of public figures (such as political candidates and members of Congress) and news organizations (such as CNN and NPR) use twitter to keep you up to date on the latest news from around the globe.
As of June 2010, Twitter is ranked 11th on the Alexa global top 100 sites.
Twitter is for staying in touch and keeping up with friends no matter where you are or what you are doing. For some friends you might want instant mobile updates—for others, you can just check the web. Invite your friends to Twitter and decide how connected you want to be.Twitter.com
