Twitter is a communication platform that instantly connects people everywhere to what's most meaningful to them. At the heart of Twitter are small bursts of information called Tweets, which are 140 characters or less in length. However, you don't have to tweet to use Twitter. Lots of people just use Twitter to get the latest information about the things that mean most to them. With over 500 million Tweets per day and more than 270 million active users, there is something for everyone on Twitter, no matter what you're interested in or where you are in the world. Twitter can be accessed on the web, on smartphones and on the simplest of feature phones.
