Should investors short-circuit the listing of Twitters

As of today, even the stock market is chirping | 140 reasons Twitter is a total high-flyer

Twitter has revolutionized the world and created a whole new way of communicating with short messages. Now the high-flyer has dared to go public. The next few days will show how investors embrace the company, which is not yet making a profit.

BILD explains why Twitter is the best social network of all time and how tweets move the world with only 140 characters - for 140 reasons, of course!

  1. Finally, to be brief! Thanks to Twitter, we have to limit ourselves to 140 characters.
  2. Know what's going on: A quick look at the smartphone and we know what our friends are doing.
  3. Stars up close! We also read what moves our favorite celebrities. It is now considered good form to have a Twitter profile.
  4. Chat with VIPs: And they even write back. Some more, some less.
  5. Hashtag: What sounds like drugs is the typical Twitter tagging of posts. When you click on words with the # sign, all posts with this hashtag are displayed.
  6. All just stolen: Twitter is so cool that even Facebook and Google+ have stolen features. Examples: hashtags, following users, creating lists ...
  7. Politics to understand: Schwafel politicians are also only allowed to use 140 characters. When will the first 140-character speech in the Bundestag come?
  8. News in real time: Breaking news is now spreading faster on Twitter than on news sites - especially through eyewitnesses.
  9. Get to know great people: On Twitter, people also have their say who cannot spread clever thoughts anywhere else.
  10. #FollowFriday: Twitterers spread personal recommendations on Fridays under the hashtag #FollowFriday or #FF.
  11. #cream: Digital mass demonstrations, such as the sexism debate #aufschrei in Germany, were not possible before Twitter.
  12. Political changes: The # Jan25 movement that led to the overthrow of Egyptian ruler Husni Mubarak also grew thanks to Twitter.
  13. Larry: The Twitter logo is Larry the bird. Is not he cute?
  14. #MusicMonday: On Mondays, twitterers recommend their favorite music.
  15. #Cause 1: You can tell how the ARD crime thriller was without seeing it.
  16. # Crime scene 2: Without Twitter, the "crime scene" is loooo boring anyway - have a say on the "2nd screen"
  17. Put one's oar in: And you can comment on the film without hissing a “Psssssst”.
  18. Save time on casting shows: Twitter tells you which appearances at DSDS & Co. are worth seeing - and which you can then look up in media libraries.
  19. Lots of skin 1: People like @justinbieber post their torso-free photos on Twitter or the Instagram link to the photo.
  20. Lots of skin 2: The ladies also show what they have, for example Coco Austin (@cocosworld) with their bottom.
  21. What's going on on the net? Find great posts on sites you would never have surfed otherwise.
  22. Lead discussions: It's very easy, even with celebrities, bosses and political figures.
  23. Clear announcements! If the arguments are exchanged in a maximum of 140 characters, it will not be so strenuous.
  24. Find topics: In general - you can follow a lot of different topics and discussions on Twitter. In the past you had to be registered in different forums.
  25. Never alone: When you experience something beautiful, you can immediately share it with others.
  26. Inspiration: What am I watching on TV, what should I cook today? The Twitter timeline provides ideas.
  27. #FollowerPower: If you don't know what to do next, just ask your followers. They usually know IMMEDIATELY advice.
  28. Anonymity: If you want, you can be totally undercover on Twitter. There is no obligation to use a real name.
  29. Privacy: The settings on Twitter are kept very simple. Location information, for example, can be deleted if desired.
  30. Followers instead of friends: If you are interested in someone, you can follow someone - without having to confirm a friend request, as is the case with Facebook.
  31. Become a pop star: Getting famous has never been easier. People like Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson were spotted through Twitter (and their tweeted Youtube videos).
  32. 0 Euro: Twitter is free!
  33. And it stays that way - the makers promised that.
  34. Get rid of little things! Updates that are annoying on Facebook and do not interest anyone can be posted on Twitter in an entertaining manner.
  35. Smart apps: Since Twitter was a mobile company from the start, the apps are also easy to use and well equipped.
  36. Twitter everywhere: Twitter can be easily connected to other social networks or integrated into your own homepage.
  37. Second screen: Watching TV is so much more fun when you read what others are posting about the program on your mobile phone or tablet.
  38. Laugh with Twitter: Funny posters, bizarre everyday situations, senseless signs - they spread the fastest on Twitter.
  39. Tweet instead of waiting: Anyone who complains about the train or parcel delivery service, for example, should do so on Twitter. The companies usually respond quickly and in a friendly manner to inquiries
  40. "Shitstorm": Nowhere is the criticism of the masses degenerating faster than on Twitter. As a bystander, it's fun to watch!
  41. Follow conversations: You can add your mustard anywhere, conversations are great to read.
  42. Hardly any censorship: Twitter is extremely reluctant to censor accounts or posts. Facebook is much more prudish ...

  46. Dating exchange: Sure, you can also fall in love with twitterers (even if the relationship is then semi-public).
  47. Win elections: Politicians who are on Twitter automatically appear closer to the people. That goes down well with people. One of the reasons why US President Barack Obama won two elections?
  48. Protect Tweets: In contrast to Facebook, Twitter is public. But if you want to protect your tweets, you can still do so. Then the followers have to ask for confirmation beforehand.
  49. Information worldwide: If something happens somewhere, you can quickly find information by searching for hashtags - ideally from people who are there.
  50. Follow journalists at work: Newspaper reporters understood that too. Many tweet when they are on duty somewhere.

  52. No boredom: If you're bored, just watch what other people write on Twitter while they're bored.
  53. Bridging long meetings: It is hardly noticeable when you scroll through your Twitter timeline in meetings. The main thing is not to fall asleep ...

  130. Funny internet trends: THAT is only available on Twitter. Creative jokes are collected under a specific hashtag. Example #EinletterDanebenTiere like “likes to make fun of others: the bully” or “bounces and jumps all day: the flumingo”.
  131. "To have a chirp" - You can do that on Twitter without any alcohol.
