Think a tweet is just 140 characters of text? Think again. To developers building tools on top of the Twitter platform, they know tweets contain far more information than just whatever brief, passing thought you felt the urge to share with your friends via the microblogging network. // A tweet is filled with metadata – information about when it was sent, by who, using what Twitter application and so on.
