Whether you love it or hate it, Twitter has changed the way people communicate. People can literally organize revolutions on Twitter using hashtags, experience events as they're happening from across the country or have a conversation with their favorite celebrity. People use it to find interesting links, chat about TV and movies, share photos and videos, talk to their friends and even have "Twitter parties." If you're looking for an alternative to Twitter that offers all these things, the unfortunate truth is there isn't one. You can, however, find good alternatives for some specific aspects of Twitter.
