I've been using Twitter since the summer of 2008, mostly for business purposes like networking, brand building, sharing news, marketing tips, stats, new products, events and for following trending real-time information. Check out Twitter's "trending topics" to quickly track the most popular topics. Breaking news often appears first on Twitter. Why? Because that's where the reporters and the media think their audience can be found.
Think about your own behavior. Have Phone Number List you noticed a change in the way you consume your news and information? If so, your customers are probably experiencing the same. Just the other day, my 95-year-old aunt asked how to go on Twitter because she wanted to keep her friends and family abreast of her surgery. She already uses AOL for e-mail. She may set a record for the oldest tweeter and it goes to show you that all ages are using social networking sites.
Time Magazine just featured a Twitter post on the June 5th front cover issue that said, "How Twitter Will Change the Way We Live." The article points out, "it's just as easy to use Twitter to spread the word about a brilliant 10,000-word New Yorker article as it is to spread the word about your Lucky Charms habit." It takes five to seven times to repeat your marketing message before most people take action and social networking can make this easier for you.
