    • Twitter is a social media website that allows its users to send and receive messages. It has been described as the “SMS of the internet”.
    • Twitter has over 105 million users and is growing at300 thousand users every day.
    • On average, Twitter users have 126followers.
    • With over 50 million tweets daily, Twitter has become similar to an addiction for people.
    • The same goes for Facebook. Facebook can also become an addiction.
    • Facebook has over 500 millionusers. That means every 13th person on the planet has an account. These people spend over 700 billionminutes per month on the website.

    • The first ever revolution caused by
      Social Media?
    • eRevolution 2.0 allows people to organize protests
      on social media websites.
    • “All in all, while it's probably too early to tell whether Moldova's Twitter revolution will be successful, it would certainly be wrong to disregard the role that Twitter and other social media have played in mobilizing (and, even more so, reporting on) the protests.”- Foreign Policy Magazine
    • Another example of an eRevolution was Iran’s Green Revolution. Some even called it a Twitter Revolution.
      Twitter allowed people to convey messages of the revolution as foreign media was banned.
    • By learning about the unfair elections and injustice, people wereempowered.
    • One of the people behind Egypt’s revolution, WaelGhonim, was an executive at Google. He inspired people on twitter to protest against the oppressive regime.
    • Ghonim (wearing a Twitter T-shirt): “I am not a hero. I only used the keyboard, the real heroes are the ones on the ground”
    • After days of persistent and non-violent protests, Egypt finally gained it’s freedom.
    • Need any further proof of the power of Social Media?
