There are a few…. ;o)
They obviously don’t know it themselves, else they wouldn’t carry on being twits!
Maybe they will soon ;o)
Twitter, a great idea which I don’t think is going to die out anytime soon with devices capabilities so you can use your phone with it etc will most likely help it grow massively as more people hear about it, try it and like it.
Why use twitter?
For the same reason we live…to build relationships, be connected, to share, to talk, to help, to teach, to laugh, to support and to be there for.
If you doubt that, you don’t grasp it as you should.
People who use twitter often get “news” online fast, like the current IKE issue, people posting updates on twitter were doing so in REAL time.
There is a lady who is in LABOUR, giving birth, keeping everyone updated on twitter…in REAL time. Best of luck there to you too. ;o)
It’s like a mini RRS feed of someones going on’s as it happens. :o)
Where else do you see that? See the potential with that?
Yet so many who should know better get it wrong.
Here is the dilemma with the twits, they see it as ONLY a marketing tool, inevitably be to be abused like other things that go the same way.
Marketing IS a part of life, we all do it, but not all the correct way, or in the most beneficial way.
Unintentional marketing is usually the best marketing.
Hard to do when all you intend is to market and IMO end up spamming the place with links in almost every “tweat” (each 140 character response made) you make.
If that is YOU, you don’t “get it at all” IMO…you are a twit!
Don’t get me wrong there are some marketers who do use it well.
Tweaters on the other hand, “get it” ;o)
It’s a connection tool first, they follow who they like, while others who like them follow them. :o)
One good advantage with twitter is you can add the RSS feed to a blog, website, lens which means freshly updated content each time you tweat.
Your biggest advantage on twitter is to be YOURSELF.
Just as it is in life.
It’s not all bad though as Lynn shared with us a good port on doing it successfully.
I point you to them as it means I need not explain it myself, and also I am doing what we should be doing.
Sharing good content which will help others, and freely.
I am not taking away from my own success doing this, as others would have you believe when they say, “you may LOSE readers, as they may prefer the blogs you share over yours”.
Well, if that is the case, it means I need to DO better with my content rather than STOP sharing great content of others… does it not?
But hang on, I AM sharing content here, but improving it by linking to great content elsewhere because I feel MY readers deserve it. ;o)
That IS the essence of the web after all.
Lynn will be pleased lol…don’t take Lynn’s or my word for it, read the what those who use twitter say.
Who better to read than those who say what makes you “get it“, than those who say it ON twitter.
