16 Twitter Analogies To Help You Explain Twitter

I seem to find myself digging for great Twitter analogies when faced with the paradox of explaining Twitter to a friend. You would think that something so simple would be easy to explain, yet somehow people are still dumbfounded by its purpose.

So here is a solid little list of Twitter analogies I’ve found scattered across the web. Choose your weapons.

If you have a favorite analogy that is not on this list, please share it in the comments and I’ll throw it in the mix.
