In the discussion at quora.com, three major points on why twitter is being famous in the world currently has been analysed as its:
Anonymity – Anyone can create an account and stay anonymous, the perceived value of this is very very high. A common man suddenly has the power to take on and probably bring down the strong and the powerful and do all this without ever having to reveal his identity
Perceived fame – everyone likes to get followed and listened to. Twitter provides fodder to your hunger for fame. Although it is just notional, people love the number of followers they have
Spectrum of information – there is no topic that is not discussed on twitter, from teeth whitening to bandwidth broadening. Everything is just a search away. All this and the fact that it is the “in and cool” thing now makes twitter so popular.
Similarly, Twitter has become pretty famous since last few years in Nepalese society. Many people have even jumped to Twitter because of increasing chaos and boredom in Facebook.
