    There are various reasons why Twitter is becoming so
    wildly popular. As a company owner, you will wish to be sure you’ve
    got created a private Twitter account. For example, Lindsay Lohan, who’s struggled with abusing drugs, can also be an avid user
    of Twitter and her fans as well as the media follow her
    every tweet. Everybody knows how fast news can spread across the
    web but when you use tools like Twitter it gets even better.
