Love it or hate it twitter is here to stay, but why is it so popular?
It must be more than because it is free?
When lulzsec was going strong, I used twitter to stay more up-to-date then the news. Also when shit breaks out in other countries, we get the real news easier from twitter. Twitter is a great tool for a revolution. If shit went down, twitter would be the place to go.
because you can make smart-ass comments to people across the world. also, you can basically text somebody without having to get their phone number. It’s slightly less personal but that makes it that much more accessible.
There’s no law that says you have to tweet mundane shit.
Nothing is a shame about Twitter. When you have a website like that people are going to abuse it, use it for fun, use if for business or just to waste time. You can do whatever you want with it, as long as you can fit it into 140 characters. Thats one good thing about it is you can follow whoever you want until you get bored with them – then just unfollow them! Unlike Facebook where you can have thousands of friends and not look at a single thing they say. Its all in good fun – and good business.
I keep in contact with a lot of friends through it. Its more fun to talk on Twitter than on Facebook. I also follow a lot of celebrities because its fun :) And you know when they are putting out something new. I also follow a lot of businesses and can get good deals that way. I follow the Mayor from my hometown which is a really fun way to keep up on things there. I follow a lot of news stations too. And I follow people whose blogs and webcomics I read. You get to have so much stuff in one place, it’s great! :)
