I’ve been behind on the twitter bandwagon, avoiding actually using twitter while it is slowly becoming more and more essential. Twitter from the start seemed like it had limited reasons to use, that is until a massive list of people starting using twitter making it a more and more useful services. The reasons that Twitter is becoming more useful is nearly the same as what happened with facebook. At the start facebook seemed a bit nonessential, but as support began to grow, it became a service that all my friends were on, making me feel left out if I didn’t join. Now twitter seems the same way. Everyone uses it, and if you don’t use Twitter you feel left out.
Reasons to use Twitter
Twitter lets you write small comments throughout your day basically updating what you are doing. It is essentially like status updates that you see on facebook.
Lots of support is already behind Twitter with many bloggers adding on a twitter feed on their blog, giving users a way to see what is going on in a more live fashion besides just updating with the blog.
Tech Republic came up with 11 reasons to use Twitter for busness, which includes both build network with transparency and trust and the ability to gain exposure for a blog/site and gain potential readers.
