Twitter and what it’s about.

I’ve gotta say I’m not really fond of Twitter, but it is a good way to keep up with the people I have met at AiFW within the class Twitter was introduced. I think it’s a nice way to keep up with certain media when you don’t have time to be messing with large articles and want essentially play by play news on a topic you are interested in. Twitter for me is basically a mini facebook, or more business like Facebook, thanks to it’s limited amounts of characters I don’t have to see 250 word paragraphs from my friends about what they did in the last hour, at the bar, or wherever. The main professional purpose of Twitter is to be used as a way to keep socially connected, with from what I can tell the end goal of easing people away from having to use computer to more traditional ways to keep contacted, such as cell phones and tablets. I’m certainly looking forward to seeing how this works out for the Twitter company as I believe people do need to be more mobile, and less standstill. It’s not very practical for say business practices when actually at the office, but that’s when the CO makes a rule of cutting off access during peoples worktime. As long as people are mature about it and find proper ways to use it it doesn’t appear to be as much of a spam search as I thought it would be. I imagined that Twitter was just another Facebook, and it kinda is Facebook simplified.
