Twitter is popular in Western counties such as the USA and UK. But it is also prevalent in Asian countries such as Japan and South Korea. Most Twitter users are relatively young: approximately 31% are between 18-24 years old, and 27.3% are between 25-34. In the third quarter of 2019, Twitter had 145 million daily Twitter users.
Celebrities and politicians use Twitter to share updates with their followers. A lot of official organizations also use Twitter to send important updates about emergencies. For instance, earthquakes, COVID-19, bushfires, and such.
The ability to share news also makes it an ideal communication channel for activists. Twitter has played a vital role in raising awareness for School Strike for Climate, MeToo, BlackLivesMatter, and LBGTQ+ awareness.

How safe is it to use Twitter for your betting game
It is relatively safe to use Twitter. As with most popular social platforms, it cannot afford not to be safe. But the platform does have its weaknesses. It isn’t easy to check if users are who they say they are. For instance, in 2009, The company was sued by the American rapper Kanye West because someone was impersonating him. According to him, Twitter failed to address the issue.
Since then, Twitter has implemented a verified status option for ‘people of public interest.’ People of public interest are actors, politicians, musicians, official organizations, business leaders. A blue checkmark next to their profile picture shows that Twitter has verified the identity of this user. It is not available for ordinary users. Just keep that in mind when users contact you with weird or outrageous requests.
Another problem is bots to boost the number of followers. Or are used to boost trending topics. They have even been used to spread fake news during the American elections in 2016. Make sure to check the source when someone contacts you on Twitter. And keep the following in mind: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The same goes for betting tips, on Twitter, or anywhere else. Trust your judgment.

History of Twitter
On 26 March 2006, Jack Dorsey posted the first tweet: ‘Just setting up my twttr.’ The idea of an SMS-based social platform came to life during a daylong brainstorm session at Odeo. Odeo was an American podcast company, and it used Twitter as an in-house service. On 15 July 2006, the service went public. In October 2007, it became an independent company.
At first, they named the service ‘twttr’ because the domain’ twitter’ was claimed already. 6 months after the launch, they could buy the domain and renamed it: Twitter. They chose this name because, according to Jack Dorsey: ‘…we came across the word ‘twitter’, and it was just perfect. The definition was ‘a short burst of inconsequential information,’ and ‘chirps from birds’. And that definition is precisely what product was.…’
The companies strategy is to buy other tech companies to help Twitter grow. For instance: Vine, Crashlytics, Niche, Nano Media, and Periscope. They use their expertise to help expand Twitter’s activities. Some of these allowed them to add images to the tweets, including videos, links, etc. Some helped them improve their security measures and remove malware. Others helped them to generate more income from advertising.
For a long time, the maximum length of a tweet was 140 characters. In 2017, the maximum amount changed to 280 characters per tweet.
