    Twitter, the best communication tool on the Internet

    Reviewed on 09/04/2021

    Despite all these problems that I reported, Twitter remains my favorite social network.

    Of course,...

    Despite all these problems that I reported, Twitter remains my favorite social network.

    Of course, I get stressed at times with news about politics or the neglect of the health of my country (Brazil).

    But what relieves and amuses me are the memes, the photos/videos of kittens and the presence of my friends.

    There is nothing more rewarding than that.

    Pros

    Since its emergence, Twitter has presented itself as one of the best ways to express itself on the internet. Functioning as a microblog, it allows us to tell the world what we are thinking of in 280 characters.

    It is extremely easy to use software: Just type in what you are thinking and publish.

    But the advantages do not end there: In addition to text publications, it is possible to insert other types of media, such as images, videos and gifs.

    That was when memes, viral media (videos, images, montages, etc.) arose, which amuse us so much. In my view, this is incredible, because humor is a great way to bring people together. But Twitter is also a space for serious issues.

    In recent years, it is increasingly common to follow news about politics, environment, health and everything that is important to us as a society.

    And many times, thanks to Twitter, some serious decisions have been made to transform civil society. If it weren't for the exchange of ideas that social networks provide, nothing would be done.

    Cons

    Despite being a great tool for having fun and debating important issues, Twitter ended up becoming a "toxic" space, precisely because it allows everyone to say what they want.

    Often, people with bad intentions (who don't even use their own profile picture) use this virtual space - which should be healthy - to offend and humiliate people and institutions, which ends up generating a series of problems.

    Problems such as anxiety and depression have been the most common consequences reported on the social network. I believe that the pandemic and the social and economic problems ended up aggravating these conditions.

    And, added to all this, there are still bots - robots, which, in this case, are programmed to spread misinformation.

    Most people do not know how to discern a false news from a true one, and this is very serious.

    My suggestion, in this case, is to educate the population about this and deny fake news as much as possible.

    It is increasingly common to see people offending each other, creating debates that lead to nothing and even committing crimes on Twitter. They are usually people who hide behind false profiles and only spread lies and discord.

    One of the best things about Twitter is you will have a space to say anything you want (in regulation, of course), connect with famous people, businesses, and other things. It is, in reality, the quickest way to find news, as posting a tweet requires just a few seconds.

    Pros

    Twitter is undoubtedly one of the most well-known social media sites. I began using it to promote my art brand, and it's probably the most user-friendly, particularly for beginners. It's easy to use and encourages you to limit your sentences below a certain count, which is beneficial for those of us who can get a little long-winded. They integrate with almost anything and have a great TweetDeck program that will help you organize branded tweets or any tweet you want to save as a set.

    Cons

    Things that I dislike is, I will only get a certain number of words because even the shortest ads can not cut. It would be best if you struck a balance between keywords and the advertisement itself, which can be aggravating because you've already spent too much time creating a short ad only to discover that it is still too long. Often, with far too many users tweeting their posting all the time, the odds of your tweet being noticed aren't always good, so you have to be a little proactive with posting without becoming overbearing.

    Overall Twitter can be a very efficient tool in reaching our audience and promoting our clients advertising needs in a succinct way.

    Pros

    The system is a nice tool for communicating to a slice of our audience as we want to reach all our audience or potential clients' market audience using all channels available. We as a media company are able to do both tweet links to news stories, updates, promotion and/or advertising for our clients.

    Cons

    The functionality works well, nothing to complain about here. The fact that the system has over the recent past began to censure various entities and doesn't seem to be consistent in their policing (most customers believe it is more politically motivated than anything) has appeared to wane our customer interest in using the site to advertise, as well as our readership base has appeared to drop.

    This is NOT a complaint in regards to our usage and treatment of the site, but rather a waxing customer view which has affected somewhat our potential client usage.
