Twitter is a social network whose main feature are the "tweets", public short messages of up to 280 characters (140 for Chinese, Japanese and Korean), while users can also "follow" each other and exchange private messages. It is among the most popular social networks (together with Facebook and YouTube). Unlike other similar networks, Twitter allows pornography to some extent, but just like them, it is accused of censoring certain opinions and worldviews.
