I never thought that I was going to write this post. When I first started tweeting last year it was fun for a few weeks and then the novelty wore off. But contrary to my belief, Twitter has gone from strength to strength ever since and I realized that I was possibly missing out on the most powerful networking tool to date on the net.
Over the months I watched as more and more people connected through Twitter, forming business relationships and becoming great buddies. All with the help of a small online software. And to make Twitter an even more user-friendly software, designers all around the world invested their time to develop some groovy applications to make our use of Twitter much easier.
So I bow to the immense pressure that Twitter bestows on me and become a born again user.
One thing I have to watch though is the time I input into using it. It is only too easy to have TweetDeck running in the system tray all day long – kind of like watching email alerts. But I have learned a long time ago that this would be counter productive.
Instead I will endeavor to tweet a couple of times a day for 30 minutes at the time. See how I go anyway.
If there is something I learned by watching the growth of Twitter it is the fact that it is one of the best networking tools one could wish for online. You can connect with just about anybody online, whether for a quick update, a news flash or to promote online content.
So here I am, once again back in the folds of Twitter and looking to network with you guys. If you like to keep in touch with my tweets, feel free to follow me by clicking on the little bird above this post or the previous link. I will follow you in return.
Looking forward to connect with you.
