Twitter is a fantastic tool. Problem is you can only use 140 characters. Hardly enough for an essay. Nevertheless people are able to get their conversation across.
Even "texting" or "SMSing" has a limit of 140 characters. So many teenagers are physically attached to their mobile phones 24/7.
To get one point across that might contain more than 140 characters, one has to carefully select ones words, and at times carefully shorten or abbreviate some words.
However, parents and teachers are worried that this will lower the spelling capability and English skills of many teenagers.
