This Tweet Will Scare The Hell Outta Pittsburgh Pirates Fans
By Tom Smith
Normally, Twitter treats me great. Most all of the news that I care about is covered on the online social network. If you aren’t on Twitter, this probably seems like the most ridiculous thing you will ever read. So stop, carry on with your life. We didn’t mean to mess up your flow today.
If you are familiar, Twitter is an online social networking service and microblogging service that enables its users to send and read text-based messages of up to 140 characters, known as “tweets”.
So today, I was doing twenty different things and didn’t have much time to check out the sports world. I popped on quickly and saw that tweet above.
Wow. McCutchen? There is no way, the season is over. Wait. Can’t be. Not Andrew McCutchen.
That’s correct. It’s Daniel McCutchen.
Back to the real world.
Twitter was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey and by July, the social networking site was launched. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, with over 500 million registered users as of 2012, generating over 340 million tweets daily and handling over 1.6 billion search queries per day. Since its launch, Twitter has become one of the ten most visited websites on the Internet, and has been described as “the SMS of the Internet.” Unregistered users can read tweets, while registered users can post tweets through the website interface, SMS, or a range of apps for mobile devices.
Twitter Inc. is based in San Francisco, California.
