Twitter vs Facebook

Twitter and Facebook have very different consumer bases. Everybody is on Facebook nowadays, they currently have over 1.15 billion users.

Twitter is proactive; Facebook is reactive! Facebook’s most common use is to keep people informed of what’s happening while Twitter focuses on speeding things up, often becoming a source in and of itself. Trends on twitter provide one with and update of whats going on in the world.

Over the past few years, Twitter has had Lady Gaga boiling the tweets and her followers surpassing Justin Bieber and Barack Obama as well in 2012. However, as mentioned above, Twitter would not be considered as a practitioner for a balanced diet in both the corporate and the incorporate world. The main reason and perhaps the only reason for Twitter to lag behind Zuckerberg’s seemingly indefensible and untenable world would be its complexity and the lack of user controlled options.

Also, 95% of the tweets on Twitter are retweeted from the original tweets which amenably would belong to celebrities other than just normal users tweeting about their daily cooking experiences.
