Twitter is a social networking site where communication is done through short messages called “tweets”. Tweets can’t be longer than 140 characters and they can be published via Twitter app, Twitter website or via text message (SMS). Twitter has become the center of the communication that connects people worldwide, as well as a valuable source of information.
Twitter is a social networking site, first launched in 2006 with almost a billion users all over the world. Communication on this social networking site is done through short messages called “tweets”. Tweets are limited to 140 characters.
The social network which has often been described as the SMS of the Internet, has become an important source of information, especially due to the fact that it involves real-time conversation. Therefore, Twitter users are able to keep up with everything going on around the globe easily from their computer or mobile device. Twitter especially reports the significant increase in activity during the international music or sport events, festivals, etc.
Twitter is an active community with over 200 million active users. Those users send over 400 million tweets every day. They are discussing everything from shopping to sports, from music to technology, etc.
* We monitor all accounts for aggressive following and follow churn (repeatedly following and un-following large numbers of other users).
* Every user can follow 2000 people total. Once you’ve followed 2000 users, there are limits to the number of additional users you can follow: this limit is different for every user and is based on your ratio of followers to following.
When you hit this limit, we’ll tell you by showing an error message in your browser.
* Content Boundaries and Use of Twitter
In order to provide the Twitter service and the ability to communicate and stay connected with others, there are some limitations on the type of content that can be published with Twitter.
Impersonation: You may not impersonate others through the Twitter service in a manner that does or is intended to mislead, confuse, or deceive others.
Trademark: We reserve the right to reclaim usernames on behalf of businesses or individuals that hold legal claim or trademark on those usernames. Accounts using business names and/or logos to mislead others may be permanently suspended.
Private information: You may not publish or post other people’s private and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, street address or Social Security/National Identity numbers, without their express authorization and permission.
Violence and Threats: You may not publish or post direct, specific threats of violence against others.
Copyright: We will respond to clear and complete notices of alleged copyright infringement. Our copyright procedures are set forth in the Terms of Service.

Misuse of Twitter Badges: You may not use badges, such as but not limited to the Promoted or Verified Twitter badge, unless provided by Twitter. Accounts using these badges as part of profile photos, header photos, background images, or in a way that falsely implies affiliation with Twitter may be suspended.
* Abuse and Spam
Serial Accounts: You may not create multiple accounts for disruptive or abusive purposes, or with overlapping use cases. Mass account creation may result in suspension of all related accounts. Please note that any violation of the Twitter Rules is cause for permanent suspension of all accounts.
Targeted Abuse: You may not engage in targeted abuse or harassment. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be targeted abuse or harassment are:
if you are sending messages to a user from multiple accounts;
if the sole purpose of your account is to send abusive messages to others;
if the reported behavior is one-sided or includes threats
Username Squatting: You may not engage in username squatting. Accounts that are inactive for more than six months may also be removed without further notice.
Invitation spam: You may not use Twitter.com’s address book contact import to send repeat, mass invitations.
