Why I Like Twitter
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I belong to several social networks, and I like each one for different reasons. I like Facebook because I can stay in touch with friends and family, I can see when someone I love has a birthday coming up, and I can stay informed on events that are important to me, such as class reunions. I like LinkedIn because it allows me to connect with professionals. However, Twitter is the site that I go to most often.

One reason why I like Twitter is because I can check the trends. Seeing what is trending allows me to learn what is on people’s minds. It also gives me ideas for articles. By learning what is on people’s minds, I can write articles that readers will be interested in. I also like the fact that the trends change throughout the day. Changing trends means that there will always be something new to see when I log on to the site. New trends mean new ideas, and new ideas are very exciting for writers. Checking the trends is not the only reason why I use Twitter, however.

Another reason why I use this site is because I have the opportunity to gain many followers. I want to have many followers, because I think that it would be really exciting to know that so many people are interested in what I have to say. Having many followers would make me eager to produce many articles for my followers to read. In addition to gaining followers, there is also a third reason why I like Twitter: I can compete with myself.

On Twitter, I can challenge myself to have a certain number of tweets posted by a certain date. Some users of the site have posted several thousand tweets. I, on the other hand, have not posted quite that many. Each article that I publish, however, gets posted on Twitter, which gets me one more tweet. I am looking forward to my 1000th tweet, and I am hoping that it will pertain to an article that I just published.

Finally, I like Twitter because I can have conversations with other Twitter users. I can ask questions, get answers, or simply make a comment about another user’s posting. These conversations, while they are not face-to-face or over the phone, do allow me to connect with others. It is very cool to be able to connect with others.

If you do not have a Twitter account, you might consider signing up today. Check out the trending topics, read the posts that others have written, and then see who you can connect with.
