Twitter and Facebook are the greatest social networking in the world. Until the time being, even the newest product of Google, the social networking Google+, can hardly compete with the two leaders in the social networking world. However, if I have to compare, Twitter is still better than Facebook.
It is right that Facebook has more users than Twitter, but most famous celebrities, politicians, sportsmen, and all newsmakers tend to use Twitter instead of Facebook that is mostly used by common people. Why? The reason perhaps is because the simplicity of Twitter itself.
In Facebook, you can write your status so longer with thousands character, it means that you can freely expose your idea by exploiting as many words as you can, so your messages, ideas, and thoughts can be clearly explained. But in Twitter, you are just allowed to write 160 characters for you ‘tweet’. Such short message, however, has a greater power to educate the reader and force their mind to think and contemplate.
If your thought is explained in long status on Facebook, then everybody will easily understand what you are trying to message. In Twitter, you are forced to simplify your words in 160 characters without losing the substance of your thought. Isn’t it a challenge for you? For the development of your critical mind, Twitter does better than Facebook.
Twitter also has lesser ads than Facebook. Everybody surely dislikes ads, and Twitter removes them from their main navigation. Ads only make your internet connection slow as it has to load so many images of the ads; I know it is such a pain for those who have slow internet connection.
Still there are so many things that make Twitter better than Facebook. Twitter allow you to monetize your account by share your commercial links from adf.ly, allow other paid-per-click advertising programs like Twittad and Sponsoredtweet to appear on the tweets, while Facebook does not allow any kind of advertising outside their own ads.
