    How many people here use Twitter? If so, how long have you been using it? What do you mainly use Twitter for?


    I know I use it as a tool to leverage myself online, meet new people, and build relationships. I also use it for various other things.


    So, do you tweet? If so, what is your Twitter url?


    My url is http://www.twitter.com/cpvr/

    http://www.twitter.com/cenopets

    Despite the name though, it is more often than not sidetracked with personal conversations and updated very infrequently.

    Re: Twitter?

    Mine is
    http://www.twitter.com/cjthefish

    It was a twitter account for my website, but since my website is pretty much similar to twitter, I changed the name and made it my personal one.

    Re: Twitter?

    So, how many people here use Twitter for business reasons? What about personal?


    Do you guys remember when you joined Twitter? Why did you sign up?

    Re: Twitter?

    Answers Top Questions: No. Yes

    Answers Bottom Questions: No. Because I was tired of Myspace, and no one really payed attention to FB, at this time.

    Re: Twitter?

    When I get a cellphone, I'll use Twitter to be super obnoxious like everyone I who uses it is.

    6:37 am : I AM AWAKE NOW.
    6:40 am: I AM GETTING OUT OF BED.
    6:43 am: I AM MAKING MY WAY TO THE KITCHEN TO MAKE COFFEE.
    6:45 am: I AM TAKING THE COFFEE OUT OF THE CAN, AND PUTTING IT INTO THE COFFEE MAKER.



    ........ I know people who actually use twitter like that, religiously, okay.

    Re: Twitter?

    Mine is http://www.twitter.com/MegaCreomon

    It's private(though, so long as updates aren't every 2 seconds and no spam-bots, I'll add anyone) and not updated too frequently. I mostly have it to keep up with friends who've almost completely stopped using Livejournal in favor of just Twitter updates.

    Re: Twitter?

    I don't have a personal nor will I ever, I find the site annoying and pointless. Only reason I use it is for advertising my Zazzle (which it isn't doing much of anything) and posting quick updates about my petsite.

    Re: Twitter?

    I have registered to twitter like three years ago but until now i just have few tweets there. I just cant figure out how this site works and how it will be beneficial to me. Yes of course its for social sense but it is enough that i have my Facebook. I believe that twitter is just beneficial for celebrities because they are the one most followed and their tweets became a talk of the town. But for an ordinary person like me, my tweets will be simply just a tweet.

    Ya, its hard to get established on Twitter though - because there's so many people involved. But, its still fun.

    I have an account on twitter but it's for the game I am working on. I don't really care about allowing stockers to know what I am doing. I rather keep it secret.

    11 AM: Making cookies

    I find twitter is a little bit of a stocking site. It's funny how that site got a huge hype and now it's becoming more and more a business tool.
