Because, I’m using it.
Not enough reasons? <grumpy face> I knew you wouldn’t buy this.
Okay, allow me to present why you should:
You might be thinking, “I’m neither an author nor do i have any business to advertise”. True, but do you have a blog? Are you working on any interesting project? Are you a character? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then yes, you’ve something to advertise.
Follow your interests.
Twitter makes it easy to follow your interests: people, events, or anything else, so you can stay up to date of what’s happening around your interests. I’ll use me as an example: I follow a (very) few people. No, I don’t follow celebs like @KimKardashian or @justinbieber – I don’t care what they do – oh, sorry, my interests don’t match theirs. Instead, I follow people from whom I learn new things, people whom I find interesting, people those inspire me. If any of those people write a new article, I want to know about it. With Twitter, i can know the news from all the people at a single place.
Example. Mine. Again.
I was excited about it and wanted to attend, but couldn’t. I tweeted this.
A tweet appeared magically from Marco saying, hey Sam – you are awesome, this session has been recorded for you. Ha, I’m dreaming here. But you can see his tweet below:
This shows how Twitter makes it easy for a novice like me to interact with a master like Marco.
I’m sure there are other ways to achieve these – but don’t you want to pick the horse that wins the race?
See ya on the Twitter world…
