This study deals with the style used by Farhat Abbas in his twitter. The writer chooses this topic because the writer sees types of style used by Farhat Abbas in his twitter. This study is to answer the questions: 1a) what types of style are used by Farhat Abbas in sentence structure scope?, 1b) what types of are style used by Farhat Abbas in directing meaning (figurative language) scope?, and 2) what is the possible reason of Farhat Abbas to use certain style in twitter criticism toward Ahmad Dhani?.

Furthermore, the writer found five types of style in directing meaning (figurative language) scope which are Personification, Hyperbole, Synecdoche, Understatement, and Apostrophe. Types of style which are mostly used by Farhat Abbas are parallelism and repetition which are six sentences and hyperbole which are three sentences.
