A to Z of Twitter: Shortest Tweepl you never knew!

Unlike most Web-Wares, Twitter has no lower limit on the characters in the username, though; each tweet is limited to 140 characters. Writing sensible stuffs in short words is the fun part of tweeting. The username precedes all the @replies to tweets, so the shorter the username, the longer can be the message part. A longer username leaves less room for the message part.

But if you are thinking of taking a single character username, just like I did today morning, you will find that all short names have been taken. Early Bird Catches The Worm! Let me honor the early birdies.

Tweepl : is a commonly used slang for people who use twitter a.k.a tweeps, a.k.a. twitterer a.k.a Tweeps

    Very unusual and witty post. I guess we all missed this trick and perhaps all these very short names were taken in the very early days of twitter.

Divi WordPress Theme

Divi WordPress Theme

My Review: Divi is the only WordPress theme you will ever need. It comes with a drag-and-drop theme builder. You can build beautiful looking unique websites without touching a line of code. Just choose from one of the many pre-made layouts, or pick elements and arrange them any way you like.

Divi is every WordPress developer's wet dream. You can surprise your clients with neat responsive websites and have fun building them.

Divi comes from Elegant Themes. If you enjoy building websites, you *need* an Elegant Themes membership. 87 beautiful themes and 5 plugins for the cost of less than a candy-bar each!

Note: I am an avid user of Divi myself. When you use my affiliate link I will earn a commission, at no extra cost to you of course, and all the earnings are put towards running and improving this website. This is an honest review and my views are impartial.
