Social Media: Twitter


Twitter bird logoTwitter is a microblogging site where users can create profiles, issue short posts, and read the posts of other users. The professional possibilities with Twitter can be maximized by careful selection of other Twitter users to follow. In this sense, Twitter is not like Facebook. Quality of contacts is more important than quantity.

Why Use Twitter?

Twitter is a free social network with millions of users ranging from individuals to businesses. Twitter functions as an extremely efficient way of sharing and gathering information, called "tweets," from a collection that you curate. The best thing of all is that you don't need to be an active participant to find value in Twitter--start out just by following Twitter accounts you find interesting and relevant. Whether contributing or absorbing, Twitter is all about the latest news, trends, and ideas, and stories you've chosen to stay informed about.
