Quiz: How much do you know about social media platforms?
Do you know your Twitter from your TikTok?

SOCIAL MEDIA HAS been in the news a lot this week thanks to a certain Elon Musk. 

The world’s richest man completed his $44 billion takeover of Twitter and began his tenure by making himself CEO, sacking the entire board and laying off thousands of employees. 

Many are debating whether they will continue to use Twitter in the wake of Musk’s acquisition. If they decide to delete their accounts, they will still have many other social networking sites to keep them entertained.

But how well do you know your social media platforms? Test yourself.
