Have you ever tweeted someone using the online social network Twitter?
There are over a billion Twitter accounts out there in the world today. However it's been reported that about 44% of all of those Twitter accounts have never ever been used to tweet anyone.
I am one of those 44% offenders. I tried Twitter a very long time ago and I just didn't get it. I still don't. I think it's the weirdest social media platform invented yet. But that could be because I'm a twit when it comes to Twitter.
I joined Twitter about a year ago to take part in a contest for the SyFy channel - they were asking fans to Tweet them title suggestions for the upcoming "Sharknado" sequel, so I dutifully sent some in. Sadly, none of my suggestions ("Sharknado 2: The Revenge of Tara Reid," "A Good Day to Shark Hard," "The Shark Who Shagged Me," etc.) were chosen. (*SIGH*)
That was it for me and Twitter. I haven't used it since.
I must've sent them about two dozen of them along those lines. Some others were "Shark Hard with a Vengeance," "Sharknado 2: Because @#$% You, That's Why!" and "Sharknado 2: The Shark Knight."
yup, had a twitter account couple years ago, did tweet with a few people for a while, remember tweeting a guy once whose book I had bought which came with a CD and I'd accidentally sat on the CD and broke it and I think I tweeted him asking if I could get another one but he never replied lol Ended up getting bored with it and closed my account, did open another one a few months ago just to follow organisations and that which I'm interested in but I hardly ever go on it.
I sure have! 4,342 tweets and counting from the past four or five years. I still tweet regularly, follow about 150 of my friends, favorite businesses, celebrities, and news stations, and have about a 110 followers of the same. I think twitter is a social phenomenon that has really taken hold of the generation of people born in the 90's , as we were all in High school or starting college when it became a thing. I remember being very socially influenced to join it my freshman year of college because I was missing out on a lot of information - whether it be campus events or inside jokes between my friends I would have understood if I had an account. It really helps if your friends and organizations are a part of it, as I think this determines your level of activity on the site. I believe this is why it has been so successful - college and high school communities have really taken hold of it as a communication platform because it's what their students are using, and it's the quickest way to reach people with breaking information.
Yes, I mostly tweet new writings, but receive few tweets from my followers. Don't use Twitter much, like Facebook more.
Yes, and I'd like to know how a #Hashtag fits into all of this in today's world.

Does social networking bring us closer together, or further apart?While sites like facebook and twitter enable us to share vast amounts of our lives with others in an instant, are our intereactions in fact becoming shallower?

As there are members on HubPages like myself who use a pen name for their profile here, do you think that the step by Google to delete accounts of people who register for Plus One in anything other than their real name will eventually roll out to embrace other types of Google accounts?I found this...

How and why did the # get chosen for use by Twitter and other social media sites?Why was this chosen in preference to other symbols? It is even used on recorded phone messages etc eg "Please enter your pin number/security code etc followed by the # key"
