Twitter. Does it conjure images of people sharing meaningless trivia online, like “Brushed my teeth” or “Walking the dog” or “Had pizza for dinner”? This impression is fairly common among non-Twitter-users. But if that’s true, why is Twitter growing and getting media attention?
These are questions I asked myself. A related question was, “Since I’m using Facebook, why would I ever want Twitter?”
If you’re on the outside looking in, you may be wondering what all the hype is about. Here’s a series of posts explaining the things that piqued my interest, and the learning process they took me through:
- Why Twitter: Flight 1549 and viral news
- Why Twitter: Conference participation
- Twitter vs. Facebook
- Twitter is not Facebook Lite
What about you? What questions do you have why Twitter is important or how it works?
