REDISCOVER Twitter

Twitting is fun, so far that’s what I say.

I’ve been in Twitter since early 2008 — or late 2007, but only recently that I’m getting fond of it.

Why? Here are my Top 6 reasons:

1. Most people I know tweet, ergo, the lure to tweet.

2. Twitter digests the latest in almost about everything — and for me who have almost no access to newspaper (as in the paper and how ironic I worked in a newspaper before) and seldom watches news (prime time or late night), it is in Twitter that I get to know about the goings on in the world, in my country, and yes, I follow a couple of personalities, institutions, media organizations, to name them.

3. It instills brevity — you want to say everything in only 140 characters, so you tweet your best.

4. It’s real time, as in real time — in split second, you’ll see a couple of tweets filling up the timeline.

5. It sustains your interest. Just scroll to see what interests you. Especially in my case, if it is from a media organization I follow, and the tweet really catches my attention, I open the link and there, I get my dose of the news for the day.

6. I love the retweet function. Of course, I choose what to retweet or I’d be accused of spamming. Mostly I retweet tweets on global news, finance, personal finance, and what I think are nice to share and something to learn from.

Even if it is fun, being a responsible Tweeter is a must, as information — and misinformation travels, really, really, really fast, and sure we don’t want to be the bearer of bad or wrong information.

So, are you in Twitter?
