How to Add Twitter Widget Feeds on Blogger by www.maxginez3.com
Twitter is an Online Social Networking site offering a Microblogging service enabling users to send and read of up to 140 character text-based message known as "tweets". Jack Dorsey’s idea of creating Twitter happened in March 2006. Since it was launch, the service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, it became one of the Top 10 most visited websites on the Internet with over 500 million registered users as of 2012, that could generate over 340 million tweets daily and managing more than 1.6 billion search queries daily. That’s how important it is especially to corporations around the world investing on social media networking sites finding out how they could deliver their services to the huge marketplace.

Twitter users may subscribe to other Twitter users as well. The term subscriber is popularly known as a follower. By default, Tweets are publicly visible and anybody with an access to Twitter can see it. But senders can also customize their tweets to be delivered only among their followers, and it is also possible to block those who have followed them. Common to networking sites where users may able to customize and update their profile through their mobile phones either by text messaging or by apps intended for Tablets and Smartphones.

A word, phrase or topic discussed in a form of a “hashtag” (a word or a phrase prefixed with the symbol #); that is said to be a trending topic if it is being used by most users. Trending topics became popular because of an event that encourages the public to talk about it or either by a combined effort by fans of certain celebrities and musicians alike.
