Twitter has a diverse crowd – those who love it and those who don’t understand it and want nothing to do with it.
I myself didn’t really use Twitter until Code Format acquired one. Now I am on Twitter constantly, talking to people, finding new friends, being nosey (something that comes easily to me). It definitely opens up a whole new world to businesses and individuals.
Businesses are able to get their product out and market to many different people that they wouldn’t be able to reach otherwise. They are able to keep up with the constantly changing and growing trends in the world. They are able to display their work for the world to see. Just so you know, this blog will be posted on Twitter after it’s written – with the title “Do You Tweet?”, even though the answer is quite obvious on that platform.
Individuals are able to keep in contact with friends and family, much as they do on other social networks. They can chat back and forth with the lead singer of that band they discovered the week before. They can stalk an ex-girlfriend (or boyfriend…you never know).
Another big thing with Twitter these days are mobile check ins. People can check into Twitter every time they enter a new place. Stop at McDonalds for milkshake? Check in. Go to the bank to make a deposit? Check in. Swing by Target for toilet paper? Don’t forget to check in! This article caught my eye due to the may people that are using the check in feature these days: mashable.com/2010/09/02/twitter-mobile-official-apps/. It highlights the large amount of growth that Twitter has discovered recently via mobile phones. Not surprising, given that nearly everyone has a smart phone these days.
