What is "twit" from a lexical point of view?

Currently, the following social networks are perfectly existing and developing on the Internet: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. And this list is not complete. All of them involve communication, information exchange, etc.
I would like to turn your attention to one of the social networks, which is called Twitter. What is the meaning of the word ‘twit’ mean? It means ‘to tweet’. Such a designation was invented for a certain reason. After all, on Twitter people actively communicate, exchange their thoughts with each other. The logo of the network is a bird, which is also very symbolic.
The service of Twitter is called ‘twit’, which means the record that is being published. A distinctive feature of the twit is its length, which should not exceed 140 characters. Today twits are written in different languages and there are a lot of them.
