25 Things You're Missing By Not Being on Twitter
In the world of social media, people understand Facebook.Instagram is also a favorite since it's basically the best of Facebook (the pictures) and doesn't have any political rants or annoying invitations to games.
However, Twitter is a different story.
I have PLENTY of friends who either (a) claim to be on twitter but "don't use it much" or (b) admit, "I don't get it." Many say both.
I listen and engage in a mild banter about the land of tweets, but I don't effectively explain why I so thoroughly enjoy reading my twitter feed. In fact, I've shifted my newspaper/magazine/trade paper reading entirely to twitter. Not only do I find the information more current, but also WAAAAY more engaging.
I credit this to snappy (140 characters) writing!
Getting your news from twitter is the most obvious application, but that's not what won my loyalty. But rather than tell you what I love, I thought I'd show you. Although I've numbered the posts, they appear in no particular order....
