Twitter Born

Twitter, the internet-based short texting service, was launched in 2006.

Twitter is modelled on texting/SMS for mobile phones. A message can be up to 140 characters long, and is known as a tweet. People can choose to subscribe to someone else's tweets, in which case they receive all tweets sent by that person. The service is free, and has grown rapidly.--David Ferris
