Examples include:



Historical Examples

Instant messaging is starting to replace the microblogging as they get integrated into other applications such as Facebook, and Skype. Twitter is still a significant application but it will be interesting to see how well it adapts particularly as they "fiddle" with the interface (move to Apps) and streams (in 2013 they filtered the tweets and changed from RSS to JSON for APIs).

However it is possible to save a # tag using Google Docs. A google doc to capture tweets Twitter Archive #vmvdlt

To give you an example use and analyze your own Twitter profile. See what's happening and try another. Exciting, isn't it? Tobias R. (talk) 03:36, 12 March 2015 (UTC) (, 2015)[1]
