It would not take a genius to guess you know what Twitter is. Equally, it would not take thought of mind-boggling powers to guess you are on there yourself, (or selves)? If you are not, perhaps you may want to reconsider that. Go on; off you go... I'll wait.
If, by chance, you aren't familiar with Twitter, you can easily locate a quick introduction to Twitter online.
Of course, you may just be happy with your current social network outlets, and these work just fine and should be maintained. It doesn't mean you couldn't add another plum to your pudding.
Whilst other platforms offer more apps, this is their downfall. With Twitter; you can do practically everything from your home page, and they stick to the basics.
Direct public messages can be sent with the inclusion of the @ symbol and then the user name of whomever it is you wish to, whilst private messages can be sent in much the same way; substituting the @ for a D.
Just as easy; is developing your network of followers. With profiles easy to check and a host of ways to join in; significant numbers can be yours within days. Relevant, pithy and informative postings taken for granted of course. It is also very helpful to have a customized Twitter background so that you stand apart from the others.
Because of this ease of attraction, it is unlikely that many businesses would argue against its use. Whilst many businesses may benefit from membership more than others; that is not a reason for not being twitted up and getting your musings out there.
But anyone can join the Twittering party; be it to inform of the latest range of clothes; discounted hotel rates at short notice, or simply to advise a traffic jam in your area.
It would not be too risky of me to suggest other networking sites will come online, and is therefore not too risky to suggest Twitter will be superceded. However, as of right now Twitter is the best in its field. Happy Tweeting!
