TWITTER VS INSTAGRAM

Twitter is a popular micro bloging social networking site that allow the user to send and read maximum of 140 character message known as tweets .It has its own pros and cons spreading news and trends . The pros are so many some of which are like it is big enough for small businesses  to find large numbers of following audience, a registered user can follow their favourite celebrity, they can also follow major news events from around  the world, unlike Facebook each tweet user post goes to every follower. There are also some cons regarding twitter like in 2011 the London riots as angered citizens (mostly youths) took it to the streets and left a trail of destruction and defacement behind them. Many sources blamed the spread of the movement on Twitter. The members of the Riots were able to interact with one another through tweets.( Heather Kuta August 21 2012: Exploring the Pros and Cons of Twitter in Real-Time Events)(Pros and Cons of Twitter:  grosocial.com).

Instagram is an online photo sharing, video sharing  and service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, apply digital filters  to them, and share them on a variety of social networking services, such as Facebook, like every  other online social media website it has the benefits and the drawbacks . It is more common with in  youngsters mostly girls , its pros are like you can be always in touch with the world events by going through the pictures posted by the athourities, or the users are always in touch with their distant friends who they do not see that often but on the instagram. The cons are many like strangers can follow the user and can get hold of their  private life and pictures of their family and if they post their children’s photos then it is like exposing them to the online predators who could trace the users address by Geo tagging option.(Aron Charles Demand Media; Global Post).
