It is not really a matter of looking professional if you use Twitter. I mean you would look a little more professional if you use Twitter. But that is not why many people use Twitter. I signed up for my Twitter account in 2010. I used it for a couple of days. Then I was back on Facebook and forgot the whole Twitter rush. That was because I really didn’t saw the need for another social account. I didn’t had the content for that.
What would I write on it? This was the question that I faced every time I thought about going back to Twitter.
You see Twitter is different. The information is fleeting. It is not about the past. It is about the present. Things are moving fast and fast. In Facebook it is different. The information is moving slowly.
Mostly people use Twitter on the go. And that is one of the reasons why people love Twitter. It is simple. You have 140 characters to write something. Not a post. You know like : OMG I saw a car hit the #pavement! WTF!
But Twitter is not only for that. You get information quickly. In 140 characters you read a new information. Like : #Obama will go to Russia next week!
That is it. If it is in Facebook , you probably read a long post to get that information. You know longer than 140 characters.
It is that different culture about Twitter. When you post something you are not alone. People all over the world post something about it. If you use a certain hashtag of course.
For example if you use the #Afghanpremierleague in your tweet. Then everyone will see your tweet using that hashtag. So information is constantly moving around.
Celebrities love Twitter because it is simple and moving. And you see they are more active on Twitter than Facebook.
That was the few reasons I love using Twitter more than any other social media platform. I hope you start using it more too.
