It's opinion. My opinion is actually that Facebook is utterly horrible, whereas Twitter is much better. But it's personal preference at the end of the day.

It is just passing on someone else's post, there is no significant contribution or comment.

Why do you hardly ever report on other companies who make smartphones or other social networks? It's always Apple and Twitter! I have complained to the BBC on several occasions that they should be more impartial in this area, but clearly they haven't taken these comments onboard. When will you get over your obsession with Apple and Twitter and report on a wider range of issues?

To achieve this we must:ensure that references to trade names, brand names and slogans are clearly editorially justified.not linger on brand names or logos and use verbal references sparingly unless there are very strong journalistic reasons for repeated references to a brand."The BBC posts "news" about Twitter (either on its blogs or on news.bbc.co.uk) several times per week. Often the content is not newsworthy and the brand name is used unnecessarily. Twitter is a privately owned company - it has investors, shows advertising and makes a profit. The BBC should not be promoting it in this way.

In terms of users, Facebook beats it by far. Twitter is just annoying and endorsed by 'celebrities'. It's exceedingly irritating, seeing '@davesmith - lol i c wut u did thar!'

Perhaps new apps will allow users to share media like photos, videos and music? Or they'll add more details about a tweeted link? Will you tag your tweets? Share vCards? Create polls?
