8 Reasons Why Twitter Is Awesome

Twitter is awesome.

Why?

Because of the following 8 reasons:

Reason 1: Makes you improve your writing

The 140 character limit forces you to master the art of getting to the point.

Reason 2: When bad/good news breaks you find out first

Global disasters, terrorist attacks, hero pilots making crash landings on the hudson river are revealed first on twitter. While the rest of the media is cranking out articles, twitter people are banging out scoop in 140 characters or less with links to leaked video, images and other relevant media.

Reason 3: Find interesting people

Got that latest weird Lady GaGa single stuck in your head? Type the name of the song into the search field and you will find countless people with the same problem.

Reason 4: Find Freelancers

Using advanced google searches to search the twittersphere you can find people who list specific occupations in their twitter bio … Explained in detail at “How To Find Specific Types Of Twitter Users” …

Reason 5: Get more exposure to blog posts

Thanks to services like TwitterFeed you can hookup your RSS feeds to your twitter account so as soon as you publish your latest blog post BOOM! A link to it is posted direct to your twitter feed without you needing to lift a finger.

Reason 6: Cool Twitter Apps

You can tweet from your browser. You can tweet from specialist applications. You can tweet from your phone. You can tweet using feature rich cool applications that add to the whole experience.

There are almost endless apps and mashups based on twitter.

Here is an example: Twistori.

Reason 7: Entertaining

Be in the know when the people you follow just thought of something outrageous to share.

Reason 8: Share Expertise

We all have problems. Some we can solve. And some we can solve a lot better after getting insight from other people.

Imagine you have to speak in public for the first time. You can look for people on twitter with experience of public speaking and even experts on powerpoint design and ask them questions to ensure you rock the casbah the first time and every time you speak in public …

    Just like everybody else, I also have my Twitter account. But, I seldom use it. I just don’t know why. I prefer Facebook.
