100 Terrific Twitter Innovations

From Superstar Baby Tweets to Fair-Trade Twittering

— October 17, 2011 — Lifestyle
The power of social media and networking continues to grow every day, and with Twitter now expanding to over 200 million users, this is the perfect time to check out these terrific Twitter innovations.

Whether you're a tweeter yourself, or you're yet to jump on the "140 characters or less" bandwagon, the popularity of celebrity tweets and users like 'WhiteGirlProblems' is impossible to escape in pop culture. Of all the celeb-inspired social media stunts this year, my favorite is definitely the 'BeyJayFetus' account, a Twitter with fictional tweets from the supposed unborn baby of Beyonce and Jay-Z. As outrageous as that may seem, it's proof that the power and reach of Twitter is not to be underestimated.

From hilarious to heartwarming, these terrific Twitter innovations will definitely teach you all you need to know to become a tweeting champion.
