Microblogging is a type of online communication in which users publish short messages, called "posts", on a platform or website. These posts can be text, images, links or other types of media and are usually shorter than those on traditional blogging platforms.

One of the most popular microblogging platforms is Twitter, which allows users to send and read tweets, which are short text-based posts limited to 280 characters. Other popular microblogging platforms are Tumblr and Mastodon.

Microblogging has become a popular way for individuals and organisations to share information and updates, as well as to connect with their followers and build online communities. It is also often used for networking and professional communication.
