How do you use Twitter?
I have always been asked this following question. What is Twitter? Isn't it just a status update site similar to Facebook. My answer is YES and NO. It all depends on how you want to use Twitter. I think it all depends on how the user want to use it. I utilize it for the purpose of networking ( Hence,Social Networking ). It is a great way to connect with people who have a similar interest in you. For example if you have an interest in photography, I would follow photographers. I can even narrow it down to photographers in my local area by using the "Search" feature on Twitter. Other folks may use Twitter just to update what they had for lunch. There is nothing wrong with doing that, again it all comes down to the user. Another positive use of Twitter is being able to get information even before newsfeeds. To get live tweets from people in the middle of any situation is instantaneous. Great example was the Iran Election with firsthand accounts of the heinous murders during the election. Also the breaking news of Michael Jackson and his untimely death was tweeted moment by moment for the world to see via Twitter. Overall Twitter can be used as a tool in various ways. I hope you sign up and enjoy and start using Twitter so we can communicate and Tweet. Happy Tweeting!
