When I created my twitter account a couple of months ago, I wasn’t aware of how the useful the site can be not just in driving traffic to my blog but in getting the latest updates from around the world. Nowadays, if I want to know what most people are talking about , I just log on to twitter. The information that I get there may vary from important news updates to mundane things.
‘Following’ people and reading their tweets give me the chance to know what their thoughts are on various subjects. Looking at who they follow also gives me a glimpse of what they find appealing. If they follow a lot of singers/musicians then I would assume that they’re into music as well, right ? I am following other bloggers, too. Through their tweets I would know if they are having a giveaway or if they’re joining a fellow blogger’s contest. Too bad though that some of those contests are not open for international bloggers. Do I follow celebrities as well ? Of ‘course I do !!..lol. I sure would like to know, for instance what my favorite performer is doing, what project she’s currently involved in. News updates ? I get that from several TV journalists that I follow. There are even instances where they would send out tweets during commercial breaks (if they are on live TV doing the news).
For now, I can say that ‘twittering’ will continue to be a part of my online world and I’m sure that I’ll be following more interesting (and sometimes intriguing) people on Twitter. I have even searched online for common’twerminilogy’ … heheh. I didn’t know that there are a lot of words that are commonly used on Twitter. There’s even ‘twitterpated’ and ‘twitterrhea’ (although I’m sure you have a slight idea on what they mean…lol)
So, whose tweets do you follow ? Are they interesting enough ? Maybe I can follow them too.
