The virtual equivalent of mass telepathy: being able to read people's thoughts all at the same time, in different time zones.
Twitter is a God-sent tool that enables us to guage the mood of different peoples in different geographies, based on their rational and irrational tweets.

A social media platform narcissistic presidents or politicians love to use to settle score with their counterparts from other countries, no matter the diplomatic costβ€”a subtle way to tell the other party to mind their own business.
President Trump used Twitter to tell UK Prime Minister not to comment on his controversial methods in exposing Islamic terrorism, but rather to focus on her partial failure in tackling the rise of the threat on her own soil.

A site that makes stalking effortless.
When checking twitter, i noticed that Cindy tweeted from her iPhone that she was shopping at Victoria's Secret. I think i'm going to go to the mall now. Maybe I can sneak a peek of her in the changing room.

Social network domained mainly by the so called beliebers since every day there's a trending topic related to Justin Bieber. It is also a way for many people to enlarge their egos by the number of followers they have and how is bigger to the number of people they follow making them believe they're important.
Person 1: I have 65 followers in Twitter and I follow 100 people.
Person 2: I have 768 followers and I follow 76 people. I guess I'm a celebrity.

The most succesful unorginized social network in the world.
On Twitter I have to use an @ symbol to tag people, and it takes up part of my text allowance. What the fuck?
