Classnotes: Twitter

February 9th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

A couple of weeks ago I held a basic class in Twitter at work. My main objective was to breakdown the misconceptions that Twitter is only a social outlet. Twitter has really grown out of a medium locked into social networking.

Twitter Notes

It is true that Twitter is still a broadcasting service that you can use to promote yourself or your business. Today however Twitter is also a Mobile Communication tool that can be used to coordinate groups or teams. With every news media established on Twitter, is also becoming the place to keep current on news or information specific to any interested. On January 15th, Twitter marked itself as a news source, as the first information the world heard about a plane going down in the Hudson river, was not from CNN, or MSNBC, it was in the twitter universe.

You don’t need to setup a twitter account to let everybody know what you are doing, but everybody will want a twitter account to see what is happening.
