      Thanks GPAGE for coming to this hub. I have new information from you. I am sure you know that than me. I post about the positive use twitter. But I am forget the negative. But I think there is no one perfect in the world. The simple way is receive the positive and throw the negative. I think internet also has the positive and the negative side. The show must go on. At least don't hurt people. I am admit to you that last week I post about joke and my tittle of this hub is seriously. Many hubbers inculde my friends in Hubpags thought that it was real. But Actually it was joke. I am shame. And I deleted that hub directly. This is a little example about content can make people unfomfortable.

      prasetio30....I'm sort of tied on this....someone famous in a quote I read a while ago...said that people who TWEET now all of the time would have been "crack addicts" in the old days. I thought it was very funny! I'm ok with it when people are promoting something, but when a woman tweeted that her daughter drowned......I felt it was taken to a whole new level.......TOO MUCH INFORMATION! Anyway, I'm sure MANY more and more people will TWEET! Best, G

      Thanks for all who come to this hub. For Mr.Roychoudhury, because the limited number of post around 140 characters is difficult to express our feeling. But for little quotes or simple sentences is no problem. And twitter is good for marketing or promotion. And twitter is also good for promoting our hub, like Ethel said. I also do that.
