Twitter: Some Get It, Some Don’t

This is going to be short and sweet today, after all, it’s Friday.  After reading through Facebook updates today, I realized there are those who still don’t get Twitter.  Twitter came easy to me.  As a matter a fact, I love Twitter!  When I’m feeling overwhelmed, need a break or simply having a bad day – I visit Twitter.  I call it “Twitter Breaks”.  Just today, first thing this morning, I logged in and there was a DM waiting on me to respond to that said “Random question. What color is your hair now?” from a very dear friend of mine.  I shared some information (blog post/articles) that I thought would be of value to others all while receiving some help with email issues.

Being on Twitter is like being part of a community.  You have to do your part.  Meaning, although, sharing valuable information is great and does its part in helping build your followers…you have to engage in conversation as well.  I always tell my clients that I will help deliver the content to their Social Media sites, but I will not speak or tweet for them.  It’s very important for each individual or business to have its own voice.

Along with being a huge resource, Twitter is without a doubt, the best way to share and discover what is happening right now in real time.  It’s not a difficult tool to use.  Anyone can pick it up.  What really matters is how it impacts your daily schedule.
