Why I use twitter

I remember about a year and a half ago, I was reading a blog, and this dude was talking about twitter.  I wanted to be a part of the cool crowd, so I signed up.  I didn’t have any friends…I kind of stalked a few people.  The technology kind of fascinated me.

I was just getting into the swing of twitter when I went to TX on business.  I thought it was great that I had a few friends in the tiny state of TX that I followed on twitter.

At that time, I was a bit of a novelty.  It received little to no media attention.  

As time went on, I developed a network of people with whom I interact regularly.  Though I’ve never met 99% of the people I follow on twitter, I consider a few of them friends.  As in, if I were in the area, I would DM them and we’d probably meet up for dinner, or coffee.  You get the idea.  

I follow a diverse group of people.  Some of them have the same interests/passions.  Some are leaders of the church today; some are people who live in Philly who love the city; some are fighting human trafficking/child slavery.  Some are just everyday business people with whom I have connected after reading about their lives in 140 characters or less.

My friends think I’m a crazy person becauseof my twitter addiction.  One person threatened to unfriend me on facebook if I divulged the details of a night that we were out.  

I don’t use twitter because Oprah told me about it.  I’m not trying to take over the world.  I’m simply using a tool that increases interactivity between people who would otherwise not know one another.  

What about you?  Do you tweet?  Add me as a friend:  missdeneen.
