Pros

Twitter is a great platform to use for its simplistic use and its availability to integrate into other platforms and softwares because of its popularity.
Any social media site is good for business - really helps you promote your product. Love that there are so many people - all walks of life on twitter - from celebrities to grandfathers.
Overall, it is a great software and I would recommend it to anyone who might be interested in trying it out.

Pros

Easy integration with other social networks allows for greater reach through sharing. The possibility of interacting with people through stories is amazing and fast.
The statistics are useful for seeing my outreach in the community and I've made connections with people I wouldn't have otherwise met if it weren't for my business, so I am very grateful for that.
Instagram is a great platform to extend your reach, socialize as well as follow others who inspire you. I love that you can post almost anything and there is potential to build a brand for yourself.

Cons

The only thing I don't like about the app is that the don't filter the post properly. Sometimes I just see inappropriate tweets and it is sometimes irritating.
The people on the app are harsher because most of the time, you are "anonymous. And it could be a bit confusing to use at first because it is a bit different from others.
Only there are lots of fake accounts in the app and when you send complaints to Twitter, it is not easy to receive feedback.

Cons

Mod bot blocks some uploads inappropriately and without an option to dispute. There are a lot of spam accounts that either pretend to be someone or represent a business that they are not.
If the Instagram app has been deleted accidentally from your phone, you may run the risk of losing your account which happened including all photos posted.
Instagram adverts are everywhere and sometimes are annoying. Instagram does not work well with unstable Internet connection.

Twitter is a good app, but I wish I could use it more or find more interest in it as I do in other apps.

Pros

The pros of Twitter are that it is one the most know apps in the entire world. It doesn't matter where you go, everyone knows what Twitter is, and many people use it. Artist in general are much fans of Twitter.

Cons

Twitter in my opinion is much more complicated to use than Facebook or Instagram. Or at least, to me, I don't tend to use Twitter as much as I use other apps.

Fun app for short updates

Overall experience with twitter has been good. It is nice that the app can be connected with Facebook and Instagram as well. Allows for a place to get quick updates in your news feed and also build connections with people from all over the world.

Pros

I like that you can provide a quick post about content. Keeping posts short and sweet allows readers to get to the point with news, updates, etc. Like the ability to connect with my Facebook and Instagram as well.

Cons

I do not like the hate messages or responses that I have received from time to time. At times can be hard to fit what I want to say in the allotted word count.

Essential for Social & Brand Management

Reviewed 3 months ago

Overall, Twitter is a great tool to share important company messages and new content with our customers and followers. While it does not offer as many capabilities for marketers that other social media platforms can, it is still an important part of our marketing toolkit.

Pros

Twitter is one of the key social media platforms in the marketplace, making it an essential place for brands to manage their reputation and increase customer engagement.

Cons

Twitter is not great for serving ads or targeting specific groups of people, making it primarily a brand management tool rather than one for lead generation. Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn are capable of fulfilling both needs.

Twitter - Not Really a Savvy Way to Promote

Reviewed a year ago

Coming from a larger rural area, Twitter just isn't used as much as say Facebook or Instagram. While the interfacing and functionality works just fine for promoting events and services, simply the audience of those around us just isn't there.

Pros

Like most social media apps, the Twitter app runs smoothly and is overall user friendly. You'll find plenty of groups and individuals to follow, allowing you to build an audience quickly.

Cons

Twitter is one the of least used social media "big" apps for just rural area people. If you are trying to reach more metropolitan areas, the app would be a good starting place, but for smaller communities, this isn't your app.

Best app ever!

Reviewed a year ago

I love this app!!! I use it everyday and i really enjoy it. I love reading other people's opinion and as people are so creative, they really make me laugh. I would say is a safe space to post whatever you want but also you are never free of criticisim there. Probably someone is going to agree with you and someone disagree. I totally recommend it!!!!

Pros

This app gives you the chance to write or post whatever you want without having second thoughts. I find it fascinating to see what everyone thinks about many things, and be able to get to know them better. It also gives you the opportunity to be updated with world news or tendencies and also to see what people think about them.

Cons

I feel like they should add the option of deleting a follower without having to block them. It is more works, and they could do it like Instagram which has really helped whenever i want to make someone to stop following me.

Super application de débat !

Très facile d'utilisation, c'est également un bon moyen de former une communauté de débat et de répondre en live comme par exemple, lors d'un match de football.

Pros

J'aime beaucoup le fait de donner son opinion de manière courte, afin d'aller à l'essentielle des choses . Là, où chez Instagram, les photos sont le plus mis en avant. Ici, ce sont les commentaires qui sont mis en avant (même si il y a la possibilité de publier images et vidéo également)

Cons

Malheureusement, c'est application à tendance, à être utilisée par des utilisateurs qui ne sont là que pour déverser leur haine par de la vulgarité ou des insultes mais ils sont très vite signaler auprès du service de Twitter.

Twitter

the best app to interact, chat and watch news quickly

Reviewed a year ago

I have been using Twitter since 2011 and it is by far the best social network, for the reasons already described. Increasing the character limit in tweets was great for detailing more subjects that are needed, and in fact, the interaction with everyone and everything is what makes the place different from all other social networks.

Pros

Twitter is probably the most quiet and best-to-use app. Your space to say what you want (in moderation, of course), interaction with famous people, companies and other things is one of the best things on the internet. It is in fact the easiest place to find news quickly, since sending a tweet takes almost nothing.

Cons

Some content sample limitations for some countries, this prevents people who need to see news in the format of videos from wasting time needing to go on other platforms, which can be harmful, depending on the type of news. Fleets can be improved, based on places that are successful, like Instagram.

Another avenue of organic posts/growth

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Another avenue for organic posts to drive traffic to our website. It does have a slightly different demographic than Facebook, a much more refined user base in my opinion. It's definitely great to schedule automatic posts to Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram at the same time. It doesn't take more time or effort to post on Twitter, and it does drive some traffic to our website.

Cons

We didn't use Twitter for any paid ads, as we just found Facebook and Google Ads much better. Organic traffic wasn't as much as Facebook either. Just seems people use Twitter for different uses, and are less receptive to ads.

Great Social Media Platform To Stay In-The-Know

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

In using Twitter, I have found that it is a good place to share your opinions. While other social media sites such as Facebook or even Instagram allow you to do the same, Twitter seems better suited for it, especially for the younger generation. This is actually where the term/concept of the hashtag originated. I really love that you can share your tweets to your Instagram account. You can share/retweet,...

Cons

It can be addictive, as with most social media platforms. There is a 140 character maximum, and it's sometimes difficult to summarize your tweet within this limit, or you have to resort to posting additional tweets on the topic/issue.
