NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Twitter didn't have a big IPO like Facebook (FB - Get Report) did earlier year and didn't have an Oscar-nominated movie made about it, but at least it's a whole lot less quiet than its status-updating competitor.Compared with Facebook, Twitter's still a little niche service. It didn't go buy Instagram earlier this year, it didn't throw Zynga (ZNGA) and its FarmVille games under the bus last month over quarterly losses and it doesn't have a whole lot of great, extraneous features that keep changing just as users get used to them. It is, however, growing much faster than Facebook while adapting far better to the mobile world.
