iTweet

November 4, 2011 Jasmine

“Twitter is an online social networking and microblogging service that enables its users to send and read text-based posts of up to 140 characters, informally known as “tweets””.

It’s crazy how so many people think twitter is stupid and made for stalkers, I completely disagree.

When first making a twitter account I too thought twitter was stupid. I soon realized I only thought it was stupid because I didn’t know all the terms or how to operate it. I know this because now that I have learned how to live in the twitter world I never want to leave it!

I like the idea that you don’t have to ask people what they are doing, how was their day ,or wonder where they are. If you want to know you can just simply check their twitter timeline.

My Timeline is mostly filled with friends, family, and peers from both high school and college.

Having a twitter account actually has a huge benefit because you ALWAYS know what is going on.

All the latest celebrity gossip, world news, and even updates from the Whitehouse are portable wherever you go.

Besides staying “in the know” of things you can see the way people feel and how people think, which can be interesting at times. People tweet how they are upset, excited, or depressed. People also tweet their philosophies on life, words to live by, and good advice.

I will continue to use Twitter not only because it is a huge networking system, but because within each account there is a small community you can personally build. I always know where the parties are, or what’s going on on-campus. All organizations on-campus even the University I attend has a twitter account. With publicity twitter is the best route to take for the people in my generation because it can reach a large amount of people, in one age range, at one time.

I encourage everyone to tweet like “iTweet”.
