Social media's fastest growing platform, Twitter is an online news & social networking service where users post and read short 140-character messages called "tweets." Launched in 2006, Twitter has over 310 million monthly active users. On Election Day 2016, Twitter proved to be the largest source of breaking news, with 40 million tweets sent by 10pm that day.
