What are your thoughts on Twitter?
I have an account but hardly active on it. After reading the minute-by-minutes, doo-doo and doh-doh posts I realized I didn't care that much about what you had for lunch, you know? So beyond stalking your favorite celebrity, what is the benefit of Twitter?
Twitter takes a lot of effort if you are following too many people. Managing Twitter and other Social net work sites can be very time consuming.
definitely it takes time but it is worthwhile and you get the benefits....
I believe anything is going to be time consuming. I guess I want the "most bang for the buck" I don't have ANY followers on twitter but I'm growing my network on LinkedIn, Pinterest and G+
I want more...time in the day??? LOL
I don't Tweet...or Twit... or whatever it's called. I made an account some time ago just to see what it was all about and it looked pretty useless to me so I never bothered doing anything with it.
Twitter can be used for many reasons. Obviously to build a brand name, share information with like minded people, ask questions etcetera. There are several tools that can help you manage twitter.
But the important question you have to ask yourself is where does twitter fit in my life/business. What are your expectations. What are you willing to invest in time/money.
I believe twitter is here to stay and can for instance be used to promote your hubs. But this doesn't mean you have to use it. You might be happy with using no social media at all or using an alternative.
You may use it to promote your services or products or even make a list of your own like minded community to promote your thoughts, feelings experiences and etc.
Twitter is old news already. Instagram and Pinterest is where it's at now.
I like Twitter much more than Facebook. Twitter has more of a global following and IMO a wider audience. My only dislike is the awful things that people say on twitter sometimes. I would like to see Twitter use better rules to enforce "hate-speak" on Twitter.
I'm not big on Twitter, It's great for following famous people to get quick updates but I couldn't care less about what celebs are doing in their life, I prefer to just enjoy mine.
Fantastic way to meet new people who share your interests, and also a great way to be a part of historical moments. It's basically another way to get your voice and opinion out there.
It is an excellent networking site especially if yo want to post links to your hubs and other articles from other writing sites. On another site I make close to $30 a month from page views itself and most of them are from my twitter followers. It does take an effort managing your followers and the ones who unfollow you, but in the long run it is excellent.

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 hunt them down and unfollow them as well? Do you send them mail saying what they...

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 we might have to wait out this drought. What say you?

A few years back when I did Examiner.com, the writers were always talking about where is the best places to promote our work. I feel like once you use all your social media accounts, hit up any forums related to your topic, reddit, and network with people you know, you're really out of places...
