Here we have the official client for communicating with people through the microblogging, Twitter. Thanks to this program, you have the opportunity to stay abreast of all the latest news and the same opportunity to share your own news with the world. The main feature of this service is that you won't receive unneeded news, cluttering up the account and spending a huge amount of time to sort interesting news from the accompanying ones.
At that, you may want to subscribe to the microblogs of those people that you do not know but are interested in their lives, as well as to keep up to date on websites that you think are interesting. Initially, through Twitter you could only send a short message of no more than 140 characters, then there came the opportunity to post links and images, and then they added the option to place video clips in the microblog (the limit on the characters remain up to the present day).
Mission of the service and the program's functionalityThis is indeed very convenient - you don't expatiate in your sayings but briefly and clearly inform the world about some pleasant news backed by a pair of pictures or video clips. The beauty of the service lies in the fact that you do not have to have the consent of the owner of the microblog, in order to be able to read his notes. In addition, you can retweet the news that you like, and on the one hand, it is an opportunity to share the news with those who subscribe to your blog, and on the other hand, you increase the popularity of the man or the site that you are following.
The same thing, by the way, applies to your account. If you are being interesting to people, you will get a huge pile of followers who are eagerly waiting for your next sayings or news. Another great feature of both the application and service is that you can look through microblogs that your friends or those who you are interested in, are following. What are the benefits? At least, due to this you get the opportunity to no longer wait for someone's interesting news in the form of good old retweets, and you can subscribe yourself to the source and keep up to date online.
ResumeInterfaceThe application has a very user-friendly interface and won't make you wander a long time through its menu in search of the desired page or function. In addition, you can change the background picture of your microblog directly with your smartphone and, believe us, it's even more convenient than by using a personal computer. Due to the peculiarities of the operating system of Windows Phone, you can enable the displaying of new tweets on the lock screen, as well as place live tiles on the home screen in order to always be aware of latest news.
