Whenever I come across something cool or wish to express myself, I never fail to tweet. Putting forward my views onto such a popular social site, which is followed by millions of people from around the world, is special. And when my tweets get re-tweeted or favorited by friends or people in general, it offers me plenty of joy.

At times, protecting my tweets do cross my mind if I don’t want everyone else to see or re-tweet what I express. Of course, you may argue that why we need to protect tweets in the first place. But again, it thoroughly depends on how you look at your tweets and most importantly whether you wish your views to remain private or be available for general public.
