Twitter is the new phenomena in regards to online social networking. Twitter follows Facebook and the popularity of status updates. The only question you have to answer on Twitter is 'What are you doing?' but in under 140 characters! Use them wisely...
Twitter is a social networking service for anyone and everyone. You can choose to 'follow' (which basically means, you can see their every update) anyone and everyone. From celebrities, musicians, politicians, fashion groups, CEO's, friends, family, co-workers, companies, MAGAZINES, websites, television shows, cartoon characters, actors, actresses- basically anyone and everyone!
You can connect via 'tweets' (status updates, which answer the question 'What are you doing?') as well as replying to someone you are 'followings' tweet- all in quick, frequent and easy-140-characters-or-less updates! You will always know what everyone else is doing, with Twitter...
Twitter has been described as the SMS of the Internet. - This may help you understand the idea.... but it's cheaper!
Why are people enjoying posting their every move online? Why not?! Are you running late for a flight? Why not tell EVERYONE who follows you? You are partying at the coolest club or party in your state- tell friends so they can join you! Did you just buy that new jacket and don't want anyone else to purchase it too? Tweet it!
Want to know what your best friend, your boss, Lily Allen, Oprah Winfrey, Kevin Rudd, Hugh Jackman, Paris Hilton and Ashley Tisdale are doing, right now? Follow them on Twitter!
You can stop 'following' people if you find they tweet too often or if you've just had enough! It is very simple to use... You don't have to do much, other than of course tweet- or just enjoy reading other peoples tweets!
Just like other social networking sites you can add a photograph of yourself and small pieces of information- like your name, your user-name and a small bio!
Twitter is one of the fastest growing websites today, with more and more people joining everyday.
Twitter can be used as a business tool to find out where prospective clients attend, tradeshows, clubs, networking parties the works. It can also be used to update your business network with updates, releases and information.
