People use Twitter for several purposes such as political propaganda, advertisement, employment seeking and so on. It works. Some use it for social activism, some use it to give the public heads up on what they need to know and some just use it for mischief.
All the uses have some trends in common, they are apt and straight to the point.
Here are 10 of such that achieved their aims concisely.
- For seeking employment
I’m currently looking for a (couple of) job(s)!

4. Public service announcement
Don’t allow anyone intimidate you. The reason why armed cowards succeed is because you are first intimidated. They won’t harass people who know their rights. No Policeman has the rights to peruse your Phone without a warrant (Just cause). #ScrapSARS #ReformPoliceNG @abellodam pic.twitter.com/JXaTE6JZQ4

5. Public warning
First time I saw this, I thought a house was on fire. But I see it everyday now. It’s stuff like this that pollutes the air in this Port Harcourt. I took this picture from First Bank, opp Leventis busstop, facing Mile 1 park area. #StopTheSoot @TouchPH pic.twitter.com/uoyhZb7js8
