Twitter is the second most popular social media site next to facebook.Though I like facebook much than twitter,as a matter of fact,twitter is better than facebook in some key features.This post is not a entire comparison between twitter and facebook.Its about only the pros of twitter which lacks in facebook.So,lets come to the point :
1.Tweets get quick attention than facebook updates.
2.You can follow more people quickly in twitter when compared to facebook.
3.You can have more contacts in twitter when compared to facebook.You can only have a maximum number of 5000 friends in facebook.
4.You are not restricted to follow more new people until your following limit reaches 2000.Unlike in twitter,facebook has more restrictions for adding new people.You are able to send more friendship requests based on the approval of your friendship requests from others.For example,if your friendship requests sent to others not approved,you are temporarily banned for adding friends in facebook.
5.You are able to get other’s updates easily just by following them in twitter.But in facebook you must add the person as a friend to get their updates.
6.Twitter has less privacy settings when compared to facebook which lets us to get more online exposure.
7.Unlike in facebook,you dont have to waste your worthable time like playing online games,useless pokes and tags from friends in twitter.
8.More desktop clients are available for twitter when compared to facebook.
9.Monetizing twitter is easy for every twitter users and time consuming when compared to monetizing facebook.
10.You can able to get quick reply for your update from your twitter network when compared to your update in facebook.
11.Unlike in twitter,you can only send a bulk message to a list having a maximum of 20 conatcts in facebook.You can add many people in many lists but you can only send a message to a list which has maximum 20 contacts.Unlike in twitter,messaging to other people in facebook needs word verification if you send more messages.
12.Navigation inside twitter is easy when compared to facebook.
13.Your followers and the people followed by you are not able to write or post anything in your twitter wall(What’s happening) but in facebook you friends are able to write or post anything in your wall unless you restricted your privacy settings.
