Because I really do love Twitter it was only fair I share this as well as the 5 things I hated.
I have met and enjoyed some great friendships through blogging, those friendships were really because of Twitter though. We’ve had huge chat sessions 140 characters at a time more often then I could count.
2. Free stuff
Twitter contests are awesome, they happen quickly and I rarely have to do much to enter. It’s just awesome. I’ve personally won gift cards to restaurants and running store…you can’t beat free food and running socks!
I have more then once found out about a great deal happening in my city via Twitter. Not to mention I love finding out about new places and new places often offer deals via Twitter!
I can think of 2 specific huge events in the last year I found out about via Twitter. The Tucson shooting and the death of Osama Bin Laden. I found out about both of those via Twitter way before I saw it on the news. Actually seeing it on Twitter is what made me turn on the news!
Twitter is not complicated, there doesn’t need to be a huge plan on how you should tweet. Just tweet, share and enjoy!
