Muslims worldwide can maximize social media tool, Twitter, to aide their religious Ramadan fast which is expected to commence on Saturday or Sunday.

With the use of Twitter, Muslims can know the time for iftar (for the breaking of the fast) and Imsak (for beginning the fast) in their respective countries.

According to Twitter, users simply tweet @AlArabiya with #iftar (for the breaking of the fast) or #imsak (for beginning the fast) followed by the name of their city with a # in front (e.g. #Lagos), and the @ AlArabiya account will reply with the correct time.

Also, ahead of the holy month, Twitter has created two customs hashtags- #Eid and #Ramadan- to be used during the Islamic month.

Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar when the hundreds of millions of adult Muslims worldwide are required to abstain from food and purge themselves from all types of immorality.

Twitter also revealed that people sent more than 74.2 million tweets about Ramadan worldwide last year.
