The other day, we were talking about social media, and especially about Twitter. And from my experience with Twitter so far, I remarked that Twitter is a lot like a bunch of people standing in a room shouting.
It’s a marketing tool, I suppose. I certainly use it that way, like most blogs, and like my professor recommended: tweet each of your blog posts. But the more people you follow, the more that reading Twitter is an insurmountable task. I looked away from Twitter while writing these first two short paragraphs: 7 new tweets.
I am finding that Twitter is not particularly a good place or way to read what people are writing and putting out there. Which begs the question, how should tweets be read?
What good does Twitter do us?
