Re: apparently only twits twitter

I only joined to reserve my name in case it seemed like something worth doing.
So far I've not seen or heard a compelling reason to go back.

Re: apparently only twits twitter

Seems that folk are only joining in response to the media hype, which goes to show how gullible we can be.
Personally, I can't see the point. I would imagine that people who have interesting things to say are probably too busy to use the site, whereas those who have time to Twitter might not have much of interest to say (or perhaps that is not the point of it!).

From our perspective, it's a good line of support communication.
It's a new angle where customers casn get in touch for assitance with any questions or issues that they're experiencing.  Sometimes they get quite a shock too Smiley

I just like following interesting people. It's fun to be let in on their internal musings.
There was also a twitter comedy gig last night - that was highly amusing.

Re: apparently only twits twitter

I'm a twit because I like it, I don't tweet a lot but am still learning an appropriate use of it.
There are members of this forum and plusnet staff who follow each other sharing links, cricket scores, opinions, jokes etc.
I get Plusnet status updates through twitter and it is very useful for news items and current affairs too.
I am considering it's use for business with a separate account for my company.
So I am trying to learn about by by using it.

Re: apparently only twits twitter

I use it because it's quick, I can use it from my phone pretty much anywhere without having the hassle of a bloated page like facebook.
I've also had useful info sent to me about my train situation from people on this forum on it.

Re: apparently only twits twitter

That reminds me.
When I had to get home from my last holiday, I had to go via Birmingham, when there was that security incident (bloke locked in car with canisters) and getting travel updates from friends on Twitter and Facebook, was really handy.
I had my geek army scouring the web for me Cheesy

Re: apparently only twits twitter

This thread is certainly interesting - I had no idea how useful Twitter can be. Might even join just to take a look but don't know whether I have anything to twitter about!

Re: apparently only twits twitter

You can tweet about anything and everything Smiley It's the randomness that makes it interesting.

It's worth pointing out, too, that originally Santiago was actually quite sceptical about the service - which you'd never guess now. Smiley
