Are you interested in 3D modeling or BIM topics?

About Twitter

As millions already know, registered users can read and post tweets, but those who are unregistered can only read them. It all started several years back, when a guy named Jack Dorsey sent out the first tweet in 2006. If you are interested in Twitter’s origin story, read about it here.

Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called “tweets”. Are you using Twitter yet for business?

Twitter is a great tool for brands to promote themselves, and their products, plus it’s an easy way to reach out to people. With each post being only 140 characters, tweets are short and sweet, which is why many business leaders use it.

We like that users can keep up with whatever interests them and it’s simple to find people who have your same interest.
