Twitter (now known as X) is a real-time micro blogging and social networking platform that allows users to share 140-character updates with other users who follow them.

Posts are known as Tweets and users can engage with Tweets by liking, retweeting, or commenting on them, alongside talking with other users by using the @ function. Hashtags are commonly used on Twitter to help Tweets gain more visibility.
