For public relations class we were assigned to use “twitter” for a week and then talk about our experience on our blog.
When I first heard about twitter I was throwing “hatorade” all over it. My main argument was that I didn’t need to know when Kanye was using the bathroom or when a celebrity was spotted somewhere.
- I now stand here and admit that I judged a book or a bird by its cover before I really gave it a chance.
After “tweeting” for a couple of weeks I have discovered all kinds of stories, news and interesting ideas that I never would have heard about had it not been for twitter. Some of the coolest “tweets” were those related to events or award show taking place. I watched the Grammy’s and kept up with what people were saying on twitter about the show. It was like watching the Grammy’s with America in the bedroom with me. The comments, ideas and opinions were usually just funny, but often they were also great “inputs” that really made the whole experience more exciting.
- It was amazing that almost every “tweeet” that night said something about how no one knew about the 3D classes, it was cool because it let you know everyone was in the same boat as you.
I think that in the future I will use twitter to make connections with professionals, keep in touch with friends and just for fun in general. I definitely find it a great tool to use and I find myself recommending it to others constantly.A lot of times we become disconnected from the world simply because we do not watch the news, read articles, or even just talk to people. Twitter has found a way to make “staying relevant” fun and easy for anybody no matter what age they are.
