Well as you know Twitter and Facebook have emerged out as competitors but now they both have begun working in different ways now. Facebook has a lot more number of users and features as compared to Twitter but still that doesn’t make Facebook stand top of the class. I personally don’t hate Facebook but I really can’t ignore the significance of Twitter which makes me believe it as the best social media network. Following are some reasons which highlights Twitter’s advantages over Facebook which will also make you consider that Twitter is better than Facebook.
1. Twitter has lesser users, limited features but unlimited productivity.
As you already know that Facebook users are a lot more in number than Twitter. But that doesn’t make Facebook a better social network. Even people who don’t possess much knowledge of internet also register their accounts on Facebook for just making a few friends, though Twitter is only for those who have a good reason to join it such as running campaigns and more.
2. Twitter is better for marketing and promotion.
Twitter acts as a medium to tell people about your business, promoting your website, brand, portfolio or to share your latest business updates. Whereas Facebook is good for sharing how you are doing with your spouse in Hawaii and share your photographs of places you are visiting there.
3. Twitter is good for bloggers and website owners.
Twitter lets you keep people updated with your blog posts, news and website. While Facebook is only helpful if you are blogging to share celebrity gossip and Big Brother episodes.
4. Twitter’s back-end support is way better than Facebook.
I don’t know whether you have encountered with imposter Facebook pages or not. The thing is, it is almost impossible to get support from Facebook if you want to take down an imposter Facebook page which pretends to be you, believe it or not but it is true. Whereas in case of Twitter, the backend support is so rich and you can easily take down imposter profiles.
5. There is no dating or useless gossiping in Twitter.
I bet nobody can debate on this! As you know most of the people these days especially new users and boys join Facebook with a motive of dating with charming girls. So it is enough to prove that the present and future of Facebook is nothing more than a big and universal dating site. However Twitter has nothing to do with such chatting and dating.
6. Facebook’s interface is full of clutter.
Well there are numerous people who didn’t like the Facebook timeline interface. The interface has become a clutter box due to which people ignores the ads for which you have paid a lot of bucks. The only type of ads which aren’t ignored by people are the ads related to mobile games. Moreover, the kids and teenagers these days login to Facebook for just playing their favorite mobile games online.
7. Twitter is a business favorite.
Twitter is now providing Managed client services to business owners, whereas Facebook has failed to provide anything closer to that yet.
8. Crowded notification box in Facebook.
Can’t tell how many times this has happened to me. If somehow I login to Facebook after a week or so, I see my notification box showing 99+ useless notifications, even if I’m not connected with more than 300 friends.
9. Twitter’s policy for explicit content.
Twitter’s policy in terms of explicit content is lot more stricter and better than Facebook. Now Facebook doesn’t seems to be as strict as it was before 2013. There are numerous people who join Facebook with one and only one purpose which is to share their fantasies and explicit content. It takes time for Facebook to track such content. Whereas there is no place for such content on Twitter as it manages to take it down very quickly.
10. Twitter is the future for the Entrepreneurs.
There is no way to ignore this advantage of Twitter. As for a guy like me, a web developer and blogger who wishes to share his opinion with the world or even promote his services by sharing website links via Twitter, then I must say that Twitter is light years ahead of Facebook.
Again I would like to mention that I’m not a hater of Facebook but I just love Twitter more than any other social network. Twitter’s algorithm has a lot to do with the business promotion and the future of internet. It takes one’s opinion to the world with limitlessness like a speedy bird that has no barriers in its way!
