Why are they on Twitter…?

Who is on Twitter…?

There are tons of famous people on Twitter, from Movie Stars, TV Presenters, to Author and even the President Barack Obama…

Like President Barack Obama have been using twitter in his election campaign to keep his voters or supporters updated of his upcoming plans for United States of America. Stephen Fry and the rest of the rich, popular and famous people are also using twitter to either update their fans or supporters about their latest news or productions or records or etc. Twitter making it easier for this people as they always do not have enough time to post regularly on BLOGs like WordPress. But using mobile devices to update a 140 words of what they are doing now or updates, is a much more simpler way. And thats the way of Micro-Blogging, using Twitter.

“President Barack Obama’s online presence drove his campaign’s early fund-raising and his primary victory over Hillary Rodham Clinton. His campaign’s use of Twitter, Facebook and YouTube proved that he was part of the Web 2.0 generation. In the run-up to November’s election, Senator Obama — or one of his staff members — typed more than 250 updates to his Twitter account at twitter.com/barackobama.”

Do you think Twitter is useful or a waste of time?

17 08 2009

I think twitter can be a very useful…

As twitter is a micro-blogging using just 140 words to update your status or simply what u doing now.

Not just twittering on your computers, it can be on your 3G phones, which can update you every moment or subscribe twitter using SMS functions if you don’t have any 3G phones…

Twitter also allows you to upload tons of photos, which you can share it with your friends no matter where you are.

Why everyone is using twitter, and even the big companies?

Is not just updating your own personal status, but companies like Dell and Starbucks, update customers of the company deals and coupon codes:

Dell has created a number of Twitter profiles, each meant for different types of deals (e.g. DellOutlet posts recent refurbished Dell computer offers)

Starbucks posts new offers and also participates in threaded discussions of these offers with their Twitter-followers.

Companies like Ford and Samsung, even use twitter for posting company news

Ford posted the company internal news (the account seems abandoned).

Update: here are some cool Ford Twitter accounts you can check out:

Samsung has created a Twitter account dedicated to mobile phones and posts both the company (US department) and product news there.

And now with the uprising twitter follower population, it maybe even bigger success than Facebook.

Now having twitter, I can have more creative ideas in advertising and promoting my future café.

“So what you think about twitter ? “

Some do think is a waste of time just like David Letterman…
