Do you do Tweet?
Did you know that I do? I just joined Twitter this year! <—Check out my fun twitter button on the side bar!
Peer pressure of course. Everyone is tweeting.
Actually let me clarify that, every blogger is doing it. My friends that are on twitter also happen to be bloggers. So it was blogger peer pressure!
With that being said Twitter is not just a blogger thing. Bloggers just happen to like Twitter a lot.
So what do I do on twitter? How has impacted my life?
I talk to friends. <—You can talk publicly or privately with friends.
I make friends. <—You can meet people with common interests.
I win giveaways. <—Companies are now offering giveaways and contests via Twitter.
I share my experiences. <—I communicate with my Twitter followers
I interact with companies. <—I have asked questions, voiced concerns and given praise to companies.
complain say that I tweet too much a lot. Of course he doesn’t count because he doesn’t even like Smart Phones or Facebook. <—Seriously what could he possibly know? Nothing.
Honestly I did all of that before twitter, but twitter has made it easier to connect with people and companies. A lot easier. And the interaction is often immediate rather than hours or days between responses (as with email)!
And in the interest of being honest about Twitter, I have to admit it can be a little addicting!
My Blackberry recently took a swim in the dog water courtesy of my
monster youngest, Elliot. Sadly the rice trick did not work and I have been forced to use the oldest Blackberry known to man. Seriously.
I can’t get even navigate it’s functions (assuming it actually has any functions) much less download the Twitter app.
I have become so accustomed to popping on to twitter whenever I have a few moments to see what’s happening… And now I can’t. <—Bummer!
I really feel the withdrawal symptoms right now. I still pop into Twitter when I am on my laptop, but it really isn’t the same thing…
