Sooo a few years ago i made an account, and then never looked back at it, i deleted the app after a day

but then i got talked into downloading it again, but its so so dead?? like i have 6 followers (from back when i got it and now reinstalling it yesterday) and realized not many people still actually use this??

why has the popularity of this app so low compared to the others that are around?

all my friends use Twitter, for me and my friends twitter is our preferred social media.

In my opinion the newer generation (16 to 18 years old) use twitter more than facebook

Twitter is huge these days. It might not be as big as Snapchat or Facebook but it’s never been as big as it is now before. I would say in a few years time, it would be bigger than Instagram, Snapchat and be a real rival for Facebook.

i don't normally use twitter but I've used an anonymous account to contact people who've been involved in the same employment scam I was caught up in, since they tweeted about it. They've not replied yet.

I don’t use it anymore but I thought it was still pretty big, bigger than Facebook is now anyway with younger people. Insta is top.

Technically Facebook is still top since it owns Instagram.

FB = Messenger
Twitter = News feed
Instagram = Pictures
Youtube = Videos

That's what I use social media for.

I use it everyday and read it in the morning like its a newspaper because it honestly is... all the news I heard i first heard it from twitter and honestly its the funniest place ever. Black twitter, british twitter and American twitter. All very fun and stuff.

Used to have a fan account. Lots of followers then deleted it. And made a personal one that i dont tweet on

I never use snapchat at all, I think I went through a phase of using it maybe once or twice to post stories then I just used insta for that. I still keep the app for the filters cos everyone needs that confidence boost in their lives right?! Haha
