I love Twitter! I think I spend more time there than in Facebook. Updates are faster and there is more direct interaction than on Facebook. In Twitter, you can mention people you are not connected with unlike in Facebook where you have to be friends with the person or like the page about the person before you can interact with him/her. There’s also big possibility that those persons can read your tweets which is really exciting for an ordinary individual like me.
Take for example this favorite author of mine that I found in Twitter. I mentioned her and, wonder of wonders(!), she responded to my tweet! Can you imagine how that tweet made my day?
If you don’t have a Twitter account yet, or you don’t know what it’s all about, I suggest you go and open an account now. You can find me there at http://twitter.com/sacreyes. Let’s connect and exchange tweets!
