Twitter “Updates” become “Tweets”

Genesis of a Tweet on Twitter

Until recently, Twitter has asked everyone to “update” their twitter status, by text, by an application, or by the web. The updates posted are also known as “tweets” by many people.

Now, if you look in the upper right hand corner of your twitter page (next to your following) you will see the word “tweets” instead of updates. This change makes sense because most people have called them tweets and it brings more of an official theme to Twitter. The talk is that the word change is because Twitter trademarked the word “Tweet”.

At the time of this post, the homepage (where you send the tweets from) still has the “Update” button, and is likely to change to “tweet” in the near future.

Please leave us a comment on what you think of change or better yet leave us a “tweet”. :-)
