As I sit here drinking my morning cup of coffee thinking about how amazed I am at the whole Twitter world. When I first heard of Twitter I was thinking, “Why would I tell anyone what I was doing?” that’s too personal, and “who cares?” I don’t have time for that. I also thought on the other hand, how I didn’t care or have time to read about what other people where doing so; this Twitter thing isn’t going to be for me. Until, curiosity finally got to me and I signed up for an account and I just had to see what the “Twitter buzz” was all about.
Truly, I was fascinated to find out that it was much more that I had expected. Twitter is really a micro-blog. As a Twitterer you have 140 characters to tweet (write things) things such as a link to your website, or a link to your article, a inspirational thought for the day, or just to say hello to the world. However, the networking power that Twitter has provided to the world for free is simply ingenious to say the least.
When I first got my account with Twitter I had only a handful of followers, but slowly I found that if I asked my friends followers to follow me, and so on and so forth my Twitter world would begin to grow. Now I could build my own following, meet interesting people from all over the world, establish relationships, and find out if they share the same interests as I do. Where else can you meet people like this and establish a relationship? Twitter is a great way to network worldwide and it is safe, if you don’t want to follow, you just simply don’t follow. You can pick and choose whom you want to have a relationship with.
Personally, I use Twitter as a marketing tool for my home based online marketing business. Twitter is a great tool for promoting any business. What more could you ask for it is free advertisement that has the potential to reach world wide depending your following. All the more reason to establish relationships with people across the world on this great social network site we call Twitter.
So, if you are on the fence about the whole Twitter thing and think it’s not for you I urge you to give it a try and see for yourself the benefits of having an account and see what this whole “Twitter buzz” is all about.
