Twitter, Your Gateway to Global Conversation and Discovery

The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow.  ~ Bill Gates

Twitter, Your Gateway to Global Conversation and DiscoveryImagine Christopher Columbus setting out on his voyage of exploration in search of the New World; Twitter is in effect our search for global connection in the digital world, affirmed Jack Dorsey, Chairman of Twitter and CEO of Square, during a recent interview with Charlie Rose.  Twitter, in particular, lends itself to global communication by virtue of its open environment, and to discovery by its ability to organize around interests.

Do you know how Twitter came to be a channel for real-time conversation?  In the early days, Twitter was a tool for keeping in touch like a digital walkie talkie, but it has evolved into so much more, due in part to its users having a role in charting its transformation, via the @ symbol, the hashtag, the retweet, and the 140 character update.  Twitter is all about the here and now; offering the benefits of instant access and split second feedback.  The sky’s the limit; we’ll have to see what’s around the corner for this push technology.

So do you tweet, and if so what do you tweet about?  Who do you find engaging on Twitter?  Have you viewed any events with Twitter in the background?  Share your thoughts on how the world has benefited from real-time communication.

    Twitter is a benefit for those people who want up-to-the minute reporting through social media. I don’t use it much myself, but I like seeing the short tweets that pack a lot of information.

  2. Yes, I do tweet. Twitter is a fantastic tool for interacting and creating engagement with your business communities. I’m definitely learning and tweaking, but I’ve found that you can really build awareness by sharing relevant info without being “salesy.”

    Additionally, when you engage with twitterers during online events (webinars), you can really build awareness in the best way – having your audience tweet your ideas. This is like great word of mouth marketing.

    Great and thought provoking post!
