Twitter was never meant to be a social network. In fact it was created as a message service at a private podcast company just over 5 years ago. Today with over 200 million users and serving up over 1.6 billion enquiries a day, Twitter has evolved into a real time social network that spreads news, messages, links and multimedia with energy saving 140 character bursts. It is also maybe the most efficient social network in the top five and that is part of its unique charm. It is simple and doesn’t overcomplicate things….. that is why texting and SMS is still popular even with teenagers in a world of tempting rich multimedia. Twitter is still working out its business model with its only apparent revenue being “sponsored tweets” which are expensive and only make sense for a major brand to implement as part of its marketing plans.

12 social signals from Twitter that could influence search rankings We know that Google uses hundreds of ranking factors to determine where it places web pages in its index. We also know that social media sites are becoming increasingly influential on search placements.

The Power of Connectivity on Twitter | Web City Girls By Lynn Ponder: I started my journey on Twitter in 2009 and I remember how intimidated I felt about sharing thoughts with total strangers. How would I be judged, What would I tweet about, Who would follow me, Who should I follow? All questions were answered one day at a time, while falling in-love with everything about Twitter! Twitter is about learning, educating and inspiring, plus for me, a channel to share my passion on positive life views, spread kindness and genuinely engage with likeminded people. The magic of Twitter is evident just in the fact that by reading each others 140 character tweets, we are capable of developing friendships and business relationships in the same way we do in the real world, but this experience is completely virtual, and a mind blowing experience for me.
With Twitter making a lot of big changes at the end of 2011, one of the changes that we caught a glimpse of was Twitter brand pages.
