Twitter never fails to amuse us does it? Whether it’s the trending topics, outrage of the day, people resigning on Twitter or others finding the love of their life, twitter has something to offer to everybody. It has this amazing ability to create new stuff each day, to build it’s own personality that no other social network could replicate with ease. Though it started in 2006, Twitter recreates itself each day. #FollowFriday , #NowPlaying, Brand contests, or curated accounts, the community gives birth to ideas and activities that become an integral part of Twitter.
