Today, Twitter officially turns six years old. It’s no longer the no kid on the block or the baby of social media. My favorite thing about Twitter is being able to talk to people from all over the world, getting new perspectives and interesting ideas. It’s like a chat room for the entire human race! I also love how quick and easy it is to get started using. I hate when platforms have huge learning curves.
We asked you – What’s your favorite thing about Twitter? Here are your answers:
@mikestenger: The people.
@Wheelze359: the fact that I have another way to meet and communicate with other people from around the world. I love it. 🙂
@jwitcraft: The people I meet from here. 🙂
Anjanette Potter (via Facebook): It’s a chance to meet connect w/ people from areas you may not get to visit on a regular basis. #AdamsRib
@RecoveryPodcast: Being able to reach out to other people to connect & network like I wouldn’t be able to do in person in 20 years.
@steveplunkett: someone brought back IRC and made everyone use it
@LindsayDianne: 24/7 support, like minded people, one on one connections with brands. 🙂
@ainsliehunter: great way to keep up with new ideas, content + friends in my busy life between work, family and online jobs
@MackCollier: Twitter = Social texting. I love how it allows me to have ‘real-time’ conversations with individuals or groups.
@ahockley: The ability to lurk and sometimes jump into others’ conversations can be of value when I can add something useful 🙂
@onreact_com: It’s concise.
Sarah Arrow (via Facebook): Great and varied conversations 🙂
@katzni: Ability to connect with people with similar interests that I never would have met elsewhere. A close 2nd would be that I’ve learned to be concise in my thoughts 🙂
@kyeli: Being simply, easily connected to my favorite people. The short, sweet, delightful conversations that spring up. (:
@PaceSmith: Connecting with people I care about. My friends live mainly on the Internet, and Twitter helps me feel connected and loved.
@andrewghayes: Spontaneity. Serendipity. You never know what you’ll find.
