We should all know what power word of mouth has. Many seem to believe the rumours that social network giant Twitter will be shutting down due to the criticc, cyber bullying, and inciting radicalisation.
Twitter has over 300 million active users per day, and keeps its users informed with most of the world.
The fact is, there will be no shutting down of Twitter as they have made no announcement that it will be shutting down.
The hashtag #savetwitter began trending immensely as many showed their concerns for the network.
I use Twitter more than I use the toilet. Don't shut it down. Please. #savetwitter

Many had believed that the censoring of some peoples accounts infringed upon their free speech, although this does not suggest that the company would entirely shut down.
This whole fiasco, however, shows how influential media can be, so we should all calm down take a deep breath. Twitter is not going anywhere and doesn’t plan on it.
