Sources of Virus
- Internet is full of viruses. Whether you are browsing a music website, torrent, software or any other website, some of these, and you don't know which, have virus-infected files waiting for you to download them and cause harm to your computer.
- Many a times, you connect a USB drive to your computer for copying files. These files may be virus-infected and when you run them, these will cause harm to your computer.
- Sometimes, a very legitimate looking website also contains viruses. Often people upload their files onto websites (e.g. an online forum, etc.), which are virus-infected.
- Evil-doers have become so smart that they can attach a virus with a video file or a picture. When you open that picture or video file, these open perfectly fine but in the background the virus is doing its job quietly.
These are common sources of virus attacks, and there may be more. A computer virus can cause a little to very serious damage to your computer and you may or may not notice any effect. Find out about the effects of computer viruses on the computer here.

Easy to Use
Unlike Facebook or other similar networking sites, Twitter is easier to use. When writing a message (tweet) you do not need to think of also mentioning your location, your current feeling. Furthermore, you also don't have to worry about which video, or photo you should also post with your message. You just write a text-based message, up to 140 characters and post it!
Clear & to-the-point Messages
Since a Twitter tweet only carries a text and that it can be 14-characters long only, the tweet writers tend to write a brief, to-the-point message for its audience. Resultantly, it saves one's time to read frequent tweets of the one who you are following. The text-based and short-length tweet also helps filtering out irrelevant message posting, which helps in sending solid and clear messages to the audience.
Twitter has over 285 million monthly users. Though your tweet may not reach all of them, even a fraction of it who will get it may be valuable for you.
You can follow a person, group, business, a service or a product on Twitter, and get regular updates about it as it is posted. Besides, it is also possible to follow a certain hashtag or a topic.
Cheaper Ads on Twitter
Businesses can advertise their products and services on the Twitter website. Furthermore, posting ads on the Twitter website is comparatively cheaper than posting ads on Facebook or Linkedin.
In final words about advantages of Twitter, Twitter is good for news, trends, updates by a person or brand, and it is quick and easy to use, either on a mobile phone, tablet or a computer by teens and elders alike. If you are an individual who wants to convey your message to the world or a business owner, Twitter has many benefits that you get.
