What is Twitter?

Twitter is an online social networking service and microblogging service that enables its users to send and read text-based messages of up to 140 characters, known as "tweets".

Since its launch, Twitter has become one of the ten most visited websites on the Internet, and has been described as "the SMS of the Internet." Unregistered users can read tweets, while registered users can post tweets through the website interface, SMS, or a range of apps for mobile devices.

      I'm a horrible Twitter user since I tweet but don't read lots of tweets. Bad me. Bad.

      Great article John. I had a problem going through all of the sites and trying to find the quotes that were under 140 characters, it took so long, so I put a few thousand of them together and made a site at http://famousquotesfortwitter.com if anyone is interested.I also found people like jokes, so i got a few thousand of them also.Have a great tweetin' day,Tate Burns

      I had no idea the "pig to sing" quote was Heinlein. Okay, so he did get something right. (Yes, I know, he got a great many things right, but I wish LeGuin had been the SF writer to found a religion.) Fascinating list, however!

      The problem I have with quotes is how can anyone possibly know for certain who said something first? Maybe I look at it all wrong? Maybe it's not about who said it first, maybe the trick is being the first person to be recognized for saying it. I'm just always worried I'll quote someone and then find out later that someone else should have gotten the credit.
