“It’s what’s happening.”

This is how Twitter describes itself, the tagline it uses to attract people to come and enjoy interactions with others through the attention span-friendly brevity of 140 characters – and perhaps a gif or two.

But how does its users see it? Well, rather fittingly through the medium of a hashtag, we now know. Here’s nine ways to describe Twitter in four words.

1. #justTwitterthings

2. #politics

3. #socialmediawars

4. #theInternetneversleeps

5. #irony

6. #therapy

7. #connectingpeople

8. #allaboutthegifs

9. #needsanimprovement
