Another interesting story from the New York Times – Getting the Most Out of Twitter. You don’t have to have anything to say in order to find Twitter useful.
If you’re already a Twitter user you probably knew that anyway! But if you haven’t yet tried Twitter out the article might help you understand why it has become so popular for so many people.
The truth is, you don’t have to post a message to get the most out of Twitter.
At its best, the social medium is a perpetual, personalized news service about topics of your choosing — whether health care reform, tech news or the latest episode of “Gossip Girl” — filtered and served to you by people who care a lot about what you care a lot about.
Even the most prolific users say Twitter has become more useful as a way to tap in to the discussions of the day than to broadcast their own thoughts.
