Introduction

Microblogging is similar to blogging in the way that a user publishes information, although in this case the content that they are publishing is generally much smaller. Twitter which allows users to publish 140 character sentences as their posts. Users can follow each other, which means that they are updated whenever someone makes a new post. As this is really just a scaled down version of blogging, features such as rich text editors are not required, which means that microblogging is generally more accessible. The smaller scale also means that microblogs can easily be accessed from mobile devices.
