I read one tweet tracker on National Review but don't tweet myself.  http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/05/15/Twtter-Conservatives-War-Essay  ← This has got me thinking about it.  Do I remain anonymous like arfcomm or should I use my real name.  What's your experience?

I signed up when the terrorist hotel shooting was going down in India and news was literally breaking as it happened, but I couldn't navigate the site for shit and finally I said fuck it and haven't been back.

I don't Tweet, Facebook, Myspace or any of that other crap. I have friends, I have family and I sure as fuck don't need a "following" - what ever the hell that is.

I do, I'm a MS coach and it is a great tool to reach out with a single text from your phone that will be sent to 20 parents to get ready to pick up their kids etc.

I Tweet, have LinkedIn, have Facebook, etc.  It is all for professional work reasons.
I teach a social media (SM) course to senior execs, write SM policies for companies and am sometimes called in to do SM audits on employees
The audits can be very entertaining at times.  It is amazing what Joe Public will say online about the company and not think twice about using his name.
I also use SM for the piracy work I do.
SM is huge and growing bigger every day.  It will completely dominate our lives soon in one form or another.
Hell, I use SM to book my hotels, make my flights, schedule car and drivers for me when I fly to a city I dont know, order food service on line, pay and monitor all my bills, do my banking, etc.

You are mistaken.  It is only growing.
Bin Laden's death broke on Twitter one hour before it was announced on MSM by Barry.

I have no followers on Twitter (and delete the scammers who do follow) and have found if I follow too much about 60 people that it's just a bunch of noise.  

I mostly follow tech people, with a couple gun people/companies tossed in.

It has become a instant vetting system when liberal twats run their mouths and GOP'ers get caught being liberals.

I don't.  There isn't anyone I care enough about to "follow".   I don't read newspapers, watch local TV, or listen to much radio either, for what it's worth.

Some of the funniest shit you'll see is when the left tries out a new hashtag and the right takes it over and mocks the shit out of it.



When team Obama's #Julia campaign came out it was a fucking riot.

I use twitter to follow sports, tech and local news but I don't post anything.

I follow people like Kate Upton and Sara Underwood. They post pics from time to time.

What's the purpose of Twitter?  What kind of real value can it add to my life, vs another source of clutter?  (Honest questions)

I have a few friends on FB (who are actual, real-life friends).  It's a means to stay in touch a little more since we've gotten so spread out geographically.  However, I don't use it for telling the world what I had for lunch or that I'm taking the dog for a walk.
Link Posted: 5/16/2012 10:34:20 AM EDT
look at it this way guys.  I use social media as a business tool as much as a way to keep up with friends.  following or liking my favorite companies lets me know when new products are launched or when a deal is going on (sometimes way before other outlets)

Yes.



FB is what I have dwindled down to, and for the family and Army buddies to keep up.



I still prefer being able to talk to people face to face.

I uses it as a newswire. If you have a certain topic you follow like #FastandFurious or #nascar, you can search the hashtag and find every reference to stuff other people have found. After a while you find people with common interest to Follow. I mostly search for what I'm interested in and just skim the main feed. Often you'll find things missed by the media or not indexed by google yet.
