Ok I just got all into this twitter thing now that I see how it can be used. I'm starting to notice that people are creating some great reasons to use twitter. Some use it to keep their friends in the loop, others use it to put out a piece of their daily projects but no details forcing their curious friends to call and ask you to tell them more... Some use it as a gossip at the speed of light device since it works on all portable devices and phones. In this thread I want to elicit what the most creative (or not creative) things you think twitter can be used for? I'm curious as to what you guys think.
My twitter is http://www.twitter.com/samurwriter and I'll start.
I use Twitter for all the reasons above actually,(the gosip one I use only for things like "I found a new source of writing income" which gets my friends who are writers to ask me about it and I'll share it off twitter if I think they qualify) and because it keeps my discipline going. It is sort of a way for accountability.
Right now I give a play by play of my day (for various reasons personally with my friends/fam) and if I start slowing down I have asked my friends/family to give me crap... working at home is lucrative but self discipline is VERY HARD. My main use here is to keep me working so I have something interresting to report that I'm doing.
My mother loves it because I'm not an avid user of the phone anymore and when I don't call or email her about my day she can go to my twitter page and read all about it, then when she emails me she can ask about specific things she's interrested in. Twitter keeps people in the loop, its brilliant!
What do you use it for? Put your (if you like) twitter url and reason here! (if you like).
I usually twit my articles when I finish them, I twit websites I think people might like, and sometimes I just twit what I'm feeling at the moment. I don't know if I get any benefits, I don't know if people actually visit what I twit. But, it does get the information out there and people might want to pass it on to their Twitter followers.
This guy http://www.chrisbrogan.com/how-i-use-twitter-at-volume/ seems to be a bit of a master at it he''s got 20,000 followers!
I quite like his attitude that its about connections - but I guess I still don't entirely get it! But thanks to this thread I am going to start making a bit of an effort with twitter and see where I get to with it!

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you...

Is anyone using Twitter to promote Hubs? To me, it seems like a medium to follow celebrities and not much else. Are you using it? Are you not using it. Talk amongst yourself's

If we pump up our use of social media, i.e., marketing our articles more, will it help increase our traffic much? Or won't it make much difference because we are more dependent upon organic traffic? Something tells me...
