Example: "He stays connected to his friends by viewing their tweets on his Twitter home page."

A tweet is an update published by a Twitter user. It is similar to a blog posting, but cannot be longer than 140 characters. Tweets are meant to answer the question, "What are you doing?" which provides other users with quick updates about your life. When you publish a tweet, it will show up on the Twitter home pages of all the users you are following. Similarly, when you log in to Twitter, you will see the most recent tweets of the users that you have chosen to follow.
