If Lady Gaga is doing it, is it right that I do too? Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesIts a useful communicating tool

DisadvantagesNone because it is what you make it

"==What is Twitter?== So for those of you not on Twitter and still don't know what it is, I applaud you but where have you been?. Twitter "is a real-time information network powered by people all around the world that lets you share and discover what's happening now" according to the company Twitter Inc. who own the brand. Twitter asks "what's happening" and makes the answer spread across the globe to millions, immediately" according to the people ..." Read review

How to be a Twit

AdvantagesFairly easy to use, great way to communicate with the great and the good

DisadvantagesSpam, site sometimes cannot cope and grinds to a halt

"I first tried social media back in the days when it was called “Friends Reunited” and you were charged for the privilege of trying to get in touch with people you hadn’t seen for 25 years. For a while, Friends Reunited was one of the most popular websites in the UK, but it was eventually overtaken by free variants on what was essentially the same thing. Having tried Bebo and finding it a bit juvenile, I fell in love with Facebook ..." Read review

Birds are Twittering, But I'm Missing Something Review with images

AdvantagesGood web layout, many ways to use, easy to use.

DisadvantagesI may be missing something... but I don't see it being that useful

"The internet is full of websites to help you network, and keep in touch, and being a twenty-something year old, I'm just in the right generation to have tried them all. I've let people into MySpace, I've Facebooked everyone I know, I've blogged, I've uploaded to YouTube, I've chatted on many types of instant messenger, played game sites with a community and done things most people have probably never heard of. And so when I heard of this up and coming ..." Read review

Disadvantagessome strong language etc, no real report function if you feel your being bullied or otherwise

"- Introduction - I'd been thinking about doing a review on twitter for some time but I hadn't got around to it until now. The reason why I thought I'd review it is because I use it alot, every day and I've gained many benefits from using it which I feel its worth making others aware of, so this is my aim of my review. I'd be surprised if many people aren't aware of the service but you might not be aware of all the benefits, so I hope this review ..." Read review

Twitter - Tweet Your Darkest And Deepest Secrets & Thoughts.

AdvantagesFree, Easy & Simple, Lots of Sub Services, Business Promotion

DisadvantagesSpamming, Mild Addition, 'Fake' Followers

"Although Twitter has been an active member of the social networking and blogging community since 2006, its popularity blew out of proportion late last year, with millions of people joining including celebrities and businesses, which in turn prompted a good majority of the internet society to join and see what the whole fuss was about which saw Twitter’s user count shot up with everyone joining, tweeting and using all the Twitter related services (Twitpic, ..."

'You Are What You Tweet'

AdvantagesOutreaching to others worldwide.

DisadvantagesA little complicated in places.

"Twitter is described in a nutshell as a social networking and microblogging site. It is important to remember the social aspect of Twitter. It is something that so many people forget when they explore its uses and their views on Twitter, that primarily, its use is social. Twitter was 'born' on March 21st 2006, although it wasn't fully made available to the public till July 2006. Jack Dorsey is the designer of Twitter, although in recent years Evan ..." Read review

Twitter: Is the hype deserved?

AdvantagesSimple layout & idea, Microblogging, Some peoples Tweets are very interesting, short quick news.

DisadvantagesOthers mundane Tweets often clog up your page, random people adding you is not always wanted.

"**This review is also listed on DooYoo, under my username "MonsoonBaby"** There is no denying that the internet plays a rather important part in life for a considerably large amount of people. Social networking sites have over the last few years increasingly gained more and more popularity, that even the media and businesses are cashing in on it's success now. With what seems like pretty much everyone around you on Facebook, there is time for you ..." Read review

All that Twitters ain't gold?

AdvantagesSpeedy to use, simple to use and easy to register. Anonymity if you so wish.

DisadvantagesLacks the features of other social networking sites, some unsavoury characters.

"Until very recently I didn't really get '''Twitter'''. It always seemed to me to be Facebook's inferior cousin. You know like when you watch the remake of The Karate Kid and just think, "There isn't anything wrong with it but what does it actually add to the franchise?" There are a few reasons however why Twitter is taking more chunks out of my time by the day whereas my interest in facebook is on the wane. For the people who don't know, Twitter ..." Read review

A load of old twitter? Review with images

AdvantagesCan use it to find interesting discussions, catch up with the news

DisadvantagesNot many of my friends are actually on there

"It was only a matter of time before another social networking site popped up and here it is in the form of twitter.com. 'Not another one' I can already hear you thinking! Twitter calls itself a 'free social networking and micro-blogging service', and enables you to read what other users have posted in updates known as 'tweets'. These posts can be upto 140 bytes in length so really are micro-blogs, I'm used to reading much longer blogs which go into ..." Read review

@A Tweeting addiction Review with images

Advantagesgreat name, tidy, easy to use, celebrities, attractive


"About three months ago I was watching a video on Youtube and the 'presenter' mentioned some site called Twitter. At the time I hadn't heard of it, and it sounded a little dull. However I decided to do some investigating to see what all the fuss was about. My good friend Wikipedia informed me that that Twitter was founded in 2006, so I was quite surprised that it had taken me this long to find out about it. It's headquarters are in San Francisco, ..."

Yes you can make money on Twitter

AdvantagesIt's the quickest way to find out the latest news

DisadvantagesEvery now and then the site goes down because of too many tweets

"'''Twitter.com''' Twitter is a microblogging social networking site. It revolves around one simple question "What are you doing right now?" I signed up for a twitter account about a year ago but I never really knew what to do with it so my account stayed dormant for months. Recently it seems like everyone is twittering. Celebrities are doing it, sports figures, stores, regular people and unfortunately spammers are tweeting too. Since the recent influx ..." Read review

Twit of a site


DisadvantagesSearch capabilities, layout

"I am an internet obsessive; no really, I spend atleast 10 hours of the day online! Added to that I am young; 18 in fact. These facts put togther, are what make it so difficult for me to understand exactly why I can not get to grips with twitter. I joined Twitter, basically, because I felt old! I had heard people talking about it for months and had seen it referenced in numerous television programmes, and it was spoke about as though it was going ..." Read review

Twitter Ye Not!

AdvantagesKils time

DisadvantagesCeleb chasers

"Where as most social networking sites are about normal people using all sorts of personas to meet other people, Twitter is the opposite, prominent people wanting you to know exactly who they and are and how important and famous they are, the luxury of denying you access to their twittering if they so choose backing up their status to the mere mortals, the basic gimmick here being the chance to interact with celebrities, making you feel important, ..."
