With our Tabitha video surging towards 400K views on YouTube we at The Escape Pod are discovering new and hitherto unknown uses for Twitter for advertising purposes.
It has been a real learning experience.
Twits are the worker bees of the internet. Facebook is a retirement home by comparison. People who don’t tweet will frequently scratch their chins and say something like “Why would i want to know what you had for breakfast?”. I recall people saying the EXACT same thing about blogging 8 years ago. Here’s the deal grandpa, rock and roll is here to stay! People who tweet have something to say. And it is cathartic and entertaining to get it off your chest. Try it. You might like it. it really is micro-blogging.
Searching twitter is a lot more interesting than searching FB or google. Twitter is the unedited id of the internet. the real juice is on twitter.
Twitter is where an increasing number of people get their news. if it’s not on twitter it doesn’t really matter. I know this might sound strange but it’s a behavior i increasingly find myself doing.
Twitter is energy. All the online volunteer worker bees together create this throbbing mass of humanity online. It’s fun and useful and it’s genuine. You are naked on twitter. No anonymous trolling. It’s work. but fun work.
