Thread: Is Twitter really worth using?

  1. So why then do people find Twitter so engaging? That's what I really want to understand.

    If someone had pitched this idea to me, I would have told them it was stupid and not to waste their time. My bad -- this is the fastest growing phenomena on the Internet!

    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    No kidding. It's also that channels like CNN announce their tweets to keep people informed or what have you.
    For them it seems to work, they just announce theirs, follow nobody's tweet and hire some guy to post links to whatever new story they have, and many bored people read them.

    Twitter is the web's version of the sitcom.

    Now that I am getting more and more followers, it's starting to pay off.

    Can't be bothered really with Twitter these days.

    It's worth something if it helps making money

    Except for our offline company where it provides another information stream of the progress of things I'm not using it because it's simply not my thing. However, I have to ask our customers if they appreciate this extra service or not.

  7. The question is really not whether it's "worth it" to be on Twitter or not.

    The real issue is that you HAVE TO BE on Twitter. Whether you like or not, you have to reserve your ID and keep it active because that's where everybody is right now and even companies like CNN are endorsing it and using it in their daily broadcasts.

    So, we really don't know if Twitter will be a fad or here to stay. But, you cannot afford not to be there.

    If you don't want to spend a bunch of time there then there ARE ways to keep your account updated on a regular basis, so I would at least set up an account for each website you own, link it back to your site, and keep feeding it to keep it active.

    I don't care if CNN and other big companies use Twitter or not. I don't see much value on Twitter. But hey, I'm a PPC marketer.

  9. >>I don't see much value on Twitter.
    I don't, either. But, on these types of sites you have to be there: you at least should "protect your name" by registering your ID and keeping it active.

    Need links? Try AuthorLinks where you can buy or sell links based on Authorship and Klout score. Check out my blog or like me on Facebook.

    I see a good point in there. I do have an Twitter account, but I haven't used it yet.
