Twitter 101

Many people react to Twitter in the same way, “Why would anyone need to know what I’m doing?” or “I don’t care if you’ve just eaten your breakfast”.

These thoughts are prevalent amongst people who don’t understand the value that Twitter can bring to a business. In short, Twitter is a brilliant communication tool that allows you to interact with people in a number of different ways:

  1. Send a message to a lot of people publicly
  1. Send a message to a specific person publicly
  1. Send a message to a specific person privately

Twitter has been described as the SMS of the internet since you can only post updates of 140 characters or fewer. This limit was imposed in the early days since Tweets were originally sent via text message. It has remained in place and made Twitter synonymous with the rapid flow of concise information that has seen it become one of the world’s most popular social networks.
