What is Twitter


A Twitter icon.

Twitter is a social media network and microblogging site, where users interact with each other via short messages called tweets. Twitter was initially a private company prior to its IPO in 2013, headed by its founder, Jack Dorsey. It was subsequently bought by billionaire, Elon Musk, on October 27, 2022. The buyout reversed Twitter's status as a public limited company, to a private company once again.
