There are infinite uses one can give to Twitter– from online marketing, to sharing interesting information to filling in moments of boredom or loneliness. There are also varying degrees of Twitter usage– there’s the user that will go online for 20 minutes a day and check older tweets as mini emails, there’s the person who logs on after every break to update others and themselves on the day’s happenings, and there are the hard core users who use software like Tweet Deck or have apps on their mobiles to notify them of every tweet possible, audio alert and scheduled tweets included.
Whether you are new to the vast and still growing Twitterverse or already feel established your tweet space, you might have asked yourself this question just how much Twitter is good for you. Here are a few questions that might help you get your answer.
Are you using social media to establish your product or company on the market, and would like to enjoy the advantages Twitter offers?
Are you aiming to promote yourself because you like the idea of being a microcelebity?
Are you going through a lonely stage in real life and hoping to meet fellow tweeters and feel more connected?
Are you engaged in your goals and activities and simply like the additional social advantages of Twitter?
Are you only looking to share information with like minded people, or learn new things from those who think differently?
