SEARCH TWITTER REAL TIME HERE. TwitterSearch.ca is an independent Twitter search engine. Twitter is an Internet website, owned Twitter Inc. Twitter offers a social networking and microblogging service, enabling twitter users to send and read messages called tweets. Tweets are text-based blog posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the user's profile page. Twitter tweets are publicly visible by default - however, senders can restrict message delivery to just their Twitter followers. Users may subscribe to other users' tweets - this is known as Twitter following and subscribers are known as followers.
Users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter.com, compatible external applications, or by SMS available in certain countries. While the Twitter service is free, accessing it through SMS may incur mobile phone service provider fees. The website is based in San Francisco, California U.S.A. Twitter also has servers and offices in San Antonio, Texas and Boston, Massachusetts.
