Why We Love Twitter for Business – The Personal Reasons

I love Twitter. There, I said it. It’s fast, responsive, and simple. I get to “talk” to people on Twitter who would never have time for me in real life (I once tweeted something about #ParksandRec and ended up in a little conversation with the film crew members – woo hoo!). It’s easy to learn and use – so easy in fact, that even without knowing all of the features, you can still find it useful and fun.

It’s a great way to crowdsource for ideas, like I did below. People love to share their opinions and Twitter makes it oh, so easy!

If you’re over the age of 25, you, too might feel a little left behind on social networks like SnapChat, Tumblr and even Instagram. Not so with Twitter! In fact, the fastest growing demographic on Twitter is people aged 55-64.

Enough about my personal love affair with Twitter. I asked some fellow Twitterphiles why they love Twitter and here’s what they said:










Yes, I realize Scot is on there twice. He got a little carried away. Twitter will do that to you! 🙂

  1. Hi Alisa,

    Excellent write up dear friend! I think setting up one hell of a profile page is important. I mean, after all … most of us will look at that first right? Okay … at least for me but you get the point.

    Lovely write and shared on Triberr 🙂


  2. Hi Alisa! Thank you so much for including me in your blog! That made me smile 🙂 I loved reading the various responses you got and love that the way you write makes everything seem so accessible and doable 🙂 It’s like getting helpful advice from a great friend!

    Thanks, Reginald! Absolutely! When I am trying to decide “to follow or not to follow,” that’s the first thing I check out – then the recent tweets. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Alisa Meredith

    Thanks, Katherine! I am so grateful to have gotten such great responses to share. I started writing by taking technical phone system manuals and “translating” them into helpful books that real people could understand. It makes writing about accessible things, like Twitter – a piece of cake! Means a lot that you like the way I write!
