Two years ago I wrote this post: “To Twitter or Not to Twitter?” At the time I was debating whether or not to use Twitter and why twitter even mattered. I even made myself a Twitter account and used maybe once or twice.
I never really got the hang of how to use it. It seemed pointless to me especially since you can do the same thing on Facebook. Soon after I forgot all about my account and later I just assumed I had deleted it.
Now, only two years later I am re-thinking Twitter. It seems to have come a long way and evolved some in it’s uses. I have heard a lot of people say how good it can be for social networking and especially blogging.
So two days ago I tried to remake an account. I found that my old account had never been deleted and was still there waiting for me. I changed my username (sadly I could not use my blog name as it was taken and every thing close to it was too), added some people I wanted to follow, and set out to slowly figure out this new world called Twitter. A world filled with @ symbols and #hashtags. A world where every little detail seems to be posted around the clock.
What are your thoughts on twitter? Silly or cool? What do you use twitter for? Personal or more business? Or maybe a little bit of both?
