What is Twitter?

I hear some kids on my school talk about Twitter and I hear about it all the time on CNN. I have no idea what it is. I visited the website but still I do not understand what is it all about.
Can someone explain to me exactly what is Twitter?

Twitter is a social network. This means a lot of people interact with one another inside the Twitter website.
In plain English, people inside the Twitter network talks, share links, pictures and videos.

If I had to define twitter in just a few words, I would say it's a microblogging site. A site where you can share with everyone else what you're up to at any time. It will allow you to write anything you want, as long as each entry you make is no longer than 140 characters.
Mainly it is design for you to share "what are you doing now".
If people is interested in knowing about you, they can "follow you". And anything you write in your Twitter will show up in their page too.

To use Twitter you have to visit their website and create an account. Once you have your Twitter account with your username you can start to "tweet".

It's very entertaining once you have some friends and followers, try it.
