Blogs and Online Newspapers
Some say that email was never invented it simply just evolved from simpler beginnings. At the very start, you could only use email to message different people using the same computer. As you can see, however, email has changed a lot. Now with 600 million people using it internationally everyday, email is the most widely used form of online communication.
Twitter was born in 2006. It was created by a few programmers from the company Odeo Studio. At first it was limited the the company and their families and no one else used it. Now, however, Twitter has more than 200 million users and growing. These 200 million users are making on average 500 tweets per day.
A blog is a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, it is written informally or conversational style.
A blog is your own website that you are going to update on an ongoing basis.
An online newspaper is the online version of a newspaper, either as a stand-alone publication or as the online version of a printed periodical.
With blogs and online newspapers you are able to get or give information quickly, like reporting breaking news.
