It’s a large and often question I’m hearing these days: what is Twitter all about? I’ve got it down to 3 categories of Tweets in order to explain it:
- The ‘I’m having a shower’ crew
- The ‘I’m at a conference/church meeting and this is what going on’ gang
- The ‘I’ve just read this great blog post, and you should too’ group
Or put another way:
- What I’M doing tweets
- What WE’RE doing tweets
- What YOU SHOULD be doing tweets
They all seem to have their own following based on the people I followers. There are some that cross over, but most people seem to stick to one particular genre.
Of course there are the ‘do business with me / look at my sexy profile online’ folk. But they’re despicable, in my opinion, and simply shouldn’t be allowed on Twitter. They do have a right to play with the rest of us, but it’s a pain in the butt to have to look at their tweets when I’m looking for something to feed my soul.
And yes, for some of you reading this, what and who I discover on Twitter does feed my soul : )
