I have been asked by several people lately if I have a Twitter account. Well, no I don’t and I am wondering what the big thing is about Twitter. So I thought I would have an open discussion on the issue so I can get more feedback on the pros and cons of it all.
Here are my thoughts, and please feel free to help me out on all of this.
I have my blog and I share a alot in my blog posts. I do my rants when I need to, I post my questions for everyone when I need to, and I post giveaways on blog posts as well. What is the point of twitter? To me it seems like just another blog. I mean, if people are just following Twitter, isn’t it the same as following a blog? I would rather someone read my blog and comment on it instead of someone just following a Twitter account that only mentions contests and such. If people want to contact me, email me. It is clearly posted on my blog along with a contact form also.
So what is the big thing about Twitter? Is there some secret link in your Twitter accounts that push people to your blog? I am just not understanding the purpose of it. I am computer dumb, so maybe this is going over my head or something. I mean, what exactly is RT and all the other mumbo jumbo words that are all over the place? Isn’t it the same thing as a blog post or an email to someone. If anything it seems more like and instant messaging system.
What are your thoughts about Twitter? Do you have Twitter and has it helped with traffic for your blog? Have you really gotten more exposure with it?
