The Twitter Phenomena

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

With the New York Times calling it “one of the fastest-growing phenomena on the Internet” and Newsweek saying “…it seems as though all the world’s a-twitter”, it’s no wonder people are gravitating towards social media sensation, Twitter . However, many of our clients still ask, what is it?

Wikipedia defines Twitter as “a free social media networking tool and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read each others’ updates, known as tweets.” Tweets are like condensed blog posts—they are limited to 140 characters.

Why do I need to ‘tweet’, you ask? Believe it or not, people want to hear what you’re saying. Whether you plan to use Twitter for personal or business use, giving people a glimpse into what you’re doing is less presumptuous than you think. There are numerous reasons to ‘tweet’—to get a quick news report, to ask questions about a product or place, to direct people to a website or blog, or simply to stay in touch.
