Why use Twitter?
« on: September 26, 2018, 07:32:14 PM »
Why use Twitter:
*Interesting People:
We all want to surround ourselves with interesting people, don’t we? Sadly not all of us get the chance to do that in the real world.
*Breaking News:
Twitter has proved its worth in recent years as a platform for breaking news. The simplicity of the site means that the first think many people at the scene of a developing news story do is to tweet about it.
*Tracking Trends:
As well as breaking news Twitter is a fine resource for tracking online trends. If a YouTube video is going viral then it will be getting shared on Twitter.
*Company Contact:
Companies love Twitter. Your favorite brand is highly likely to have a presence on the site, whatever product they sell or service they provide.
*Celebrity Access:
Celebrities love Twitter too. While not every famous person is present on the site, a high percentage are.
*Creative Outlet:
Most of the entries so far have outlined reasons to follow other Twitter users, such as girl geeks and popular scientists.
*140 Characters:
You only have 140 characters to say what you want to say in a tweet (excluding URLs). This means people are forced to get to the point quickly, paring the facts down to their core essence.
