Why Twitter?

What is Twitter?  Why is everyone talking about it?  Why should I consider it?  Watch this:

  1. Twitter encourages connections with others
  2. Reminds us “It’s not all about me”
  3. Friends and family get to peek into our lives though small chunks of our days

And from blogger Rhett Smith:

There are many reasons to Twitter which I have chronicled on this blog.

But today was a perfect example. When the Southern California earthquake hit today at approximately 11:41 (Twitter) or 11:42 (CNN) Twitter was buzzing like crazy. I had numerous reports from numerous sources of the quake almost before it ended.

And when the phone lines wouldn’t work, it was Twitter that allowed my wife and I, as well as other family members and friends connect to make sure everyone was okay.

Great tool. It’s days like these that make you thankful for Twitter

Twitter – try it.  It’s free.  You can find me here: Tweet Hook
