    Twitter - A Nice social app for getting current affairs news

    Reviewed on 2021/02/05

    Overall it is pretty good App if you want to get yourself updated.

    Overall it is pretty good App if you want to get yourself updated.

    Pros

    Twitter is genuinely a best source of news, current affairs. This is the best platform for celebrities, politicians to connect with their fans. It is different from other social apps. If you want to get updated about current affairs, or what is going on around you, just login to twitter and go through the "Trends". I usually use Twitter to get updated. I will recommend you to install this app if you are interested in connecting with Public figures especially.

    Cons

    Well, there are few. Twitter should allow "editing" of tweets so that the user might not lose the reach and engagement of that tweet by deleting the tweet and posting once again just to correct any typo or any other mistake. another one is twitter will be more awesome if they add tweets reactions just like Facebook.

    Very good social software it has the best personalities people on Twitter seem more civilized than those on Facebook.

    Pros

    Twitter has a smart interface and more organized you don't need to wait for a friend request to be accepted all that is needed is to follow then that's it. I prefer Twitter to Facebook for preference sake.

    Cons

    Not much just the fact that you can't tell if a person has muted your tweets (updates), unlike on Facebook you can tell that this person isn't able to receive a post from me

    I don't prefer it. It really isn't necessary to have Twitter to be a relevant online brand. There are enough alternatives to where you can skip this one and still be just fine as a social media presence.

    Pros

    I like the ability to connect with others, promote events and activities, provide links to external sites (this is useful for fundraising organizations or if you want to direct people to your website/blog/news page). I like that in the past couple of years they gave users more control over blocking and reporting inappropriate behavior on the platform.

    Cons

    The users. There are a lot of "bots" on Twitter (not real people, computers designed to harass, troll, and tweet out the garbage) that add negativity and distract from connecting with real users. I also hate the online troll community that seems to get its kicks from bashing/hating on others, and users that use the software to spread hate, fear, anger, and overall toxicity. Unfortunately, the platform has not done a great job of ensuring that online harassment is controlled under the guise of free speech.

    Twitter - The pros and cons of the better social network

    Reviewed on 2018/10/15

    Pros

    In a world dominated by Facebook owned properties, it is great to have a platform like Twitter. As a social network/social media app, there are many things that stand out about Twitter, here is my list of pros, I will have to compare it to the biggest social network:

    1) Interesting learning curve - if you come from other social media platforms, Twitter may seem confusing at first but once you learn how to use it, you discover that it actually makes sense. The learning curve is difficult at first, but once you learn to use 280 characters, it will revolutionize how you use other platforms. That alone is worth trying it out.
    2) Twitter's advertising platform is easier to use than Facebook. Its easy and intuitive to set up ads based on Tweets that are popular (which is the holy grail to social media advertising), budgeting and targeting is fairly easy too.
    3) The real time nature of Twitter is better than the algorithms used by other platforms, this makes it ideal to follow news, events and information in real time and also for businesses to share information with their customer base.

    Cons

    There are only a few cons to Twitter at the moment

    1) Editing Posts/Tweets the inability to edit tweets or posts after you have posted them is a huge con especially if you are a business or use it for PR.
    2) Mobile support - Twitter's own apps do not have great mobile versions. Aside from Tweetdeck, there are very few alternatives to the main Twitter app that are worth using. With the limitation of the API, you are left with very few choices for mobile apps.

    Well it is a very professional interface. I ranked this application on top and openly suggests to my colleagues and business personnel.

    Pros

    There are many things for using Twitter as a social platform like; Publishing, Journalism, Advertising and for columns bloggers. As far as personal identity concern Twitter always keep user information safe and secure. You getting noticed and well informed about the trends moving in the industry. It is the best medium for the Political personnel. This application gives a huge space to the Marketing and Advertisement segments.

    Cons

    Sometime having plenty of users shows a good sign, but it can also make your work in a hurdle way. Existence of Spammers is also on a very high side. It should be noted that Twitter usually tag your User ID with the website.
