I first heard about twitter from a guy who calls himself a social media expert. That kept me away from twitter for a long time.
Then twitter popped up again, from a woman who uses it to broadcast little snippets of her life, like “Soda makes me burp. Must be all the bubbles : ) LOL” I see LOL a lot. A lot of times when it isn’t very funny.
Twitter can be used in different ways – for entertainment, gathering ideas, marketing, networking. If you’re curious about it, just sign up and start looking around. Twitter isn’t just for social media gurus and trivial stuff, though there’s tons of that. Not that there’s anything wrong with triviality.
What you get from twitter just depends on who you choose to follow.
The phrase Follow me on twitter is just grating. Follow who or what you want. Think of following as choosing channels that you might want to watch. If I weren’t following a certain grain scientist, I would have missed seeing those delightfully unique pirate cupcakes.
More on twitter to follow. LOL.
