5:00pm Monday 26th August 2013 in News
SOCIAL networking site Twitter has, not so quietly, taken the world by storm. Twitter, which allows users to post any news, thoughts or messages in less than 140 characters, has quickly embedded itself into modern society since it launched in 2006.
It has been revealed that 11 twitter accounts are created every second with more than 1 million Twitter accounts opening every day.
In the past seven years, Twitter has grown from a pointless indulgence favoured by procrastinators to one of the most influential marketing tools on the plant.
Twitter is also a key player in the newsroom with 177 million tweets published on a daily basis. It’s where breaking news arrives before it appears in the headlines.
Many of Warrington’s famous faces use twitter as a platform to speak to their fans and friends on a daily basis.
Here we list Warrington’s Twitterati who all have a Twitter following of more than 10,000 people.
