Facts about Twitter including accessibility information and accessible tweets for persons with disabilities.

What is Twitter?

Twitter is a short message service or SMS where people from around the world type in explanations for what they are doing at the moment. These statuses are known as "tweets" and have to be 140 characters or less.

Millions of people now have Twitter accounts and the number of users is growing all the time. Most of these people enjoy being able to know what their friends and family members are doing.

Twitter messages ("tweets") are not sent indiscriminately; they are only distributed to recipients who have elected to become followers.

Messages can also be sent via instant messaging, the Twitter Web site or a third-party Twitter application.

Twitter is ranked as one of the 50 most popular websites worldwide by Alexa's web traffic analysis.
