Twitter the most advanced mode of networking: Twitter is the most advanced mode of social networking services and has been described as akin to a web-based Internet Relay Chat client. From 2007 to 2008 the messages were handled by a Ruby persistent queue server which is called as Starling but since 2009 it has been replaced and handled by the software written in Scala. Further in late 2009, the new list of twitter feature was added to make it possible for the users to follow the lists of authors instead of following individual authors. The service’s API allows other web services and applications to integrate with twitter. For the group posts together by topic or type the users use the hash tags and to prefix the words or phrases # is to be used. Similarly, when users want to send messages privately then they use the letter d followed by a username and the sign @ followed by a username publicly states the attached tweets as a reply to any specific users. The limit of characters used in message was set as 140 only for the compatibility with SMS messaging and has brought to the web the kind of shorthand notation commonly used in SMS messages. Twitter was used by the long distance university Shanghai Jiao Tong University, china with native Chinese students as a tool of training. Where students used to post a certain number of English tweets and react to the tweets of their other fellow students.
