A simple sociophysical model is proposed to describe the transition between a chaotic and a coherent state of a microblogging social network. The model is based on the equations of evolution of the order parameter, the conjugated field, and the control parameter. The self-consistent evolution of the networks is presented by equations in which the correlation function between the incoming information and the subsequent change of the number of microposts plays the role of the order parameter; the conjugate field is equal to the existing information; and the control parameter is given by the number of strategically oriented users. Analysis of the adiabatic approximation shows that the second-order phase transition, which means following a definite strategy by the network users, occurs when their initial number exceeds a critical value equal to the geometric mean of the total and critical number of users.
