Twitter is the forever growing social networking platform, and for good reason. As a big Twitter user myself, I can say that Twitter, although being primarily young people, offers a large scope into the world. I use Twitter for my daily news, daily gossip, events, socialising and even as an education resource. Twitter is best described as an unfiltered, free-roam social network. Unlike Facebook, Twitter offers more of an open platform which is good for people with large followings.
So, what are some insane facts to do with Twitter? With the amount of people that use Twitter I should hope some of these facts make you raise an eyebrow. Some really interesting stuff here compiled by a reliable resource: brandwatch.
