History Of Twitter And How It Has Evolved

In 2007, Twitter became an online phenomenon and has been that way ever since. It offered a whole new way to stay close to acquaintances and provided innovative marketing as well. The site is now extremely popular. A lot of people who are on Twitter access it at least once a day, and usually more often than that. Twitter uses a simple format which is known as micro-blogging. Micro-blogging is the term for the short statements made by users that let followers know what they are up to. It also allows for micro-media like audio, video, and pictures. The only question one has to answer on Twitter is "What are you doing?" This query can be answered in a million ways, as long as it is 140 characters or less. Users can let everyone know what they are doing by answering this question. It really is a basic concept. You tell other users what you are doing or thinking and you read what other people are doing or thinking.

In March of 2006, Biz Stone, Jack Dorsey, and Evan Williams created Twitter. Jack Dorsey was actually the person who influenced the creation of Twitter the most because of his knowledge of computer software that he had learned throughout his life. Jack was a developer of computer programs designed for use by courier companies. He observed that when each company used the computer programs, the corporate headquarters could monitor where each of their employees were at any given time. Basically, the couriers were telling their bosses what they were up to at any moment during the day. This meant that the main office could be in touch with the couriers at all times, which was very important given that they needed to be efficient. As such, Twitter is really a combination of three separate components.

The first component is Jack's courier computer program.

The second component is instant messaging.

And the third component is text messaging.

When these three components are combined, and messages can be posted in real time, a great number of tasks are accomplished. Twitter allows news to be dispersed very quickly. Friends can round up other friends to meet in a very short amount of time. Advertisers can get their products in front of a great number of current or potential clients. Some people do not understand what Twitter offers and as such, it receives a lot of negative attention. But, in all actuality, Twitter is an effective application if you have followers who want to know what you are doing or can find value in what you offer. Advertisers use this tool to post links to their websites and what they are selling, which is not a very exciting proposition.

Because of this, some people have responded by creating a variety of computer programs that effectively take control of what Twitter has to offer by automating the entire process. This frees up a lot of tweeting time. For advertisers, such computer programs can be utilized in a variety of ways on Twitter, which can eliminate a lot of the tedious tasks. A few of the tools you are going to require included the ability to manage all your accounts with just one click, the ability to establish as many accounts as you want, the ability to automatically follow certain keywords and user names, the ability to automatically unfollow users who no longer want to follow you, the ability to automatically tweet from several accounts, the ability to target tweets to every follower, the ability to receive automatic Twitter trend reports, and the ability to manage your accounts on Twitter without revealing who you are by way of a proxy IP address. Unfortunately, the majority of Twitter computer programs will not provide you with everything you require, and you are probably not going to find everything you need to run your Twitter accounts in one product.
