I do not consider myself to be on the cutting edge of anything. When a new gadget or technology comes out, I respond with overwhelming skepticism. It will take months, possibly years, until I come around and give it a chance. Twitter is the perfect example of this. Everyone has been buzzing about “tweeting” for a few years and honestly it all just confused me to pieces! Plus, why do I need more updates about what my friends are doing… like what their eating for lunch? ;)
This was all before I actually tried it for myself (go figure)! Now I finally understand what all the fuss was about! Twitter is awesome in so many ways! Its only been a few weeks since I created an account and just by following friends and others I admire, I’ve been introduced to a few awesome websites, I was reminded of a registration deadline and found some awesome advice! Like most social media, you get what you put into it and although I’m tempted to tweet about the long line in Target, I’m trying my best to not use it as a tool for complaining! I’m stilling learning a lot about Twitter and how to use it effectively and this Twitter Guide Book has definitely been a tremendous help to me (check it out if your new or curious about Twitter).
