Twitter is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world. With millions of people around the world using it every day, what makes it different, and better, than some of its competitors?
Firstly, Twitter has one of the best user interfaces. It is very straightforward to navigate between your following, for you, news, and trending tabs with just a couple of clicks. Overall, the design is quite simple yet very effective.
Second, Twitter is a great way to meet new people and find communities online. With its community feature, it is almost guaranteed that a community exists for your specific interest. Additionally, there are accounts for almost everything, so you will definitely find other people online with similar interests. With so many different types of people on Twitter, it is a great way to find someone with a completely different background than you.
Third, Twitter is a great platform for advertisement. According to a 2021 survey by Social Media Examiner, 88% of marketers have increased business exposure from Twitter. Twitter can also be used to share passion projects. Creating an account for your work can quickly spread to hundreds of people around the world. The retweet feature allows people to share interesting posts they find, which would expose your project to even more people.
Fourth, Twitter will have much more filtered content than other social media sites. With Twitter Blue costing $8 every month, many of the accounts unwilling to pay will not show up on your for you page. Thus the content that Twitter is showing you ends up being less offensive or obscene in nature. However, that type of content will still be easily accessible if that is appealing to you.
Lastly, Twitter is a great way to stay in touch. With its trending and news tabs, Twitter tells you what is going on in the world, and what other users are searching for on Twitter. Clicking on a hashtag will take you to the top posts of the hashtag, where you can see what users think about these topics.
Despite the recent controversies, Twitter remains a simple yet effective form of social media. It is a great way to find new people and stay in touch with the world around you.
