    What is the reason why we Tweet?

    I have been tweeting and had an epiphany! What do we tweet and re-tweet? What is the purpose of all of this madness? Are we really getting any traffic, or are we just babbling on-line? Who really sees all of these tweets?

    Because your lives are insignificant and you need others to recognize your pathetic existence? Is this a trick question, it is a form of mind control.

    All electronic devices produce a subliminal message on the same frequency used by the human brain. The message is designed to keep you distracted from reality so that you will become part of the matrix.

    It is working really well, as all the electronic devices being used are ample evidence of.

    For most people that use twitter, it's just one more source of social interaction. Everyone requires different amounts of socialization and twitter has just become an easy, impersonal avenue people use for it.

    Of course, others are just looking a bit of entertainment from some celebrity or friend that links to funny pictures and the like.

    Some people even use it to bargain hunt by following their favorite stores or deal accounts like KillerBargains.

    interesting thought I like the way you think, my theory is that tweeting is the revolutionary of gossip, just as phone is when talking was never really top notch. I hope this helps.

    Thanks for that complete and utter rubbish somethgblue.

    I guess we use Twitter because it's another form of socialisation on the web - we enjoy meeting new people and also watching what celebrities post. We normally re-tweet (or at least I) things that are funny, correspond with our thought, or what need to be shared.

    I think all social forums are ways for people to connect with others. I feel as though the people who continuously post their life online are seeking recognition/attention.  I think most people are more lonely than they let on to others..
    Just my two cents worth.

    Twitter is a social networking site that connect you to others and display a news-feed of status updates, which is helpful when used for your small business and products promotion. keep your profile public is a good idea when you use Twitter. Google indexes profile URL, descriptions and tweets of public profile. When your Twitter profile is public, your tweets are also appear on search engine results within Twitter when people search for keywords relevant to your tweets.
