Twitter is a free, social networking “micro blog” web application that is based on the simple concept of allowing its users to answer the question “what are you doing now?”. It was conceptualized by Jack Dorsey because he wanted to know what his friends were doing. It was funded initially by Obvious, out of San Francisco CA, and then incorporated in 2007.

The simple concept is that you can follow people on twitter by clicking a button on their Twitter profile, and people can follow you. When people you are following submit a tweet, it shows up on your profile page, as well as via other methods if you have signed up to receive them - SMS, RSS, Email. You can enter an up-to-140-character “tweet” via the website or various other Twitter addon software applications such as Twitterrific, or, update your Twitter via Twitterfeed, which monitors your various RSS feeds.
