Twitter lets you share what’s on your mind in 140 characters or less. This means you need to keep your thoughts short and snappy! You can follow other users so you stay updated on what they are doing and thinking.

Pinterest

Pinterest is a super visual site that lets you create a collection of your fave things. You can create different boards (basically collections with themes) and then “pin” images that you find online. For example, if you want to start planning your summer wardrobe shopping, you can pin items you like from different clothing websites like American Eagle, Old Navy, Abercrombie, etc.

Tumblr

Tumblr is kind of similar to Pinterest, but a bit more dynamic. Users create their own micro blogs that are usually a collection of images, GIFS and videos.

Pheed

A phone is the core to life. It gives us a way to live. Some say that if you bury it, anything could grow. A tree could grow, providing oxygen. A kind of food could grow. But, you never know for sure what'll you receive. That's the true magic. What is after death?

Air is something we cannot, I repeat cannot, live without. We have to eat it with everything we eat, and we can eat it when we aren't eating anything. It's a biscuit but Idk what it's made of. If we don't eat it, we'll turn into sticks. What is a phone?
