Your Twitter timeline consists of various thoughts and ideas shared by your followers. Make sure you also tweet and gain some attention from your followers. This way you will not only create your presence but also come across few thoughts and ideas of which you would love to tweet.
“An IDEA can change your life” -IDEA Cellular. Whenever any idea pops out in your mind, you are always excited to receive the feedback and opinions about it. For better feedback, you must tweet it and let your followers decide and tell you more about your ideas and thoughts. Remember every idea is a joke until it is achieved.
Some people also like poem or poetry, and its quite challenging to make it less than 140chars, I did that too, and I called it short poem. Or you can also tweet a haiku(a traditional unrhymed short poetry, common among the japanese).
A Good Morning, Good Afternoon and Good Night is always there, greeted by some people with a bunch of people names or just a tweet. We’re in different part of the world so, someone’s Morning could be others Good night, and that will make us realize other people’s time zone.
Once you are engaged with some people, you will automatically start building a relationship/friendship; I have so many good friends around twitter, and even though we’re far apart, but I feel like we’ve known each other as we’ve met before.
Whenever friends of mine need my support to vote or RT, I will be there to support them, which are what friends are for, right? ;).
But still they need to use the magic password; “please” it’s about an attitude after all.
I like to tease my friend, mostly they know that I’m only joking, that’s one of from so many ways to get connected and enjoying a conversation.
Surely we’ll meet new people everyday from around the world, either from RT’s or from search result.
Once we are engaged in a conversation, we’ll get little bit to know each other and I think that’s a start towards a lifetime friendship.
Some are following their friends who stay far from them, like childhood friends, we can tweet them and keep in touch with them beside through a phone call.
When some people get to know each other and fall into some discussion and feels like we have something in common, they will start a club with a group of people, I have it one named #coffeeclub and we also have a blog together.
With day by day connection, chat and everything, mostly we’ll get to know who’s the real friend?, for me those who understand my jokes, and support me when I need it the most.
Trust is not easy to gain in online world, some people will fall to help others, but in return, turns out get in trouble, and I’m sure there’s a lesson behind that, and also we get to know that person can not be trusted.
Twitter is so addictive, it feels like I need to observe who’s RTing my tweets or who’s replying me or DM’s me after my last tweet, so whenever there’s a possible way to tweet, I’ll be tweeting.
DM (Direct Message) is a private way to chat on twitter, but it is also limited to 140 characters, the art of using it is to multiply the DM or you can just move to private email after.
Auto DM is crazy, it’s whenever you follow someone, and they’ll send you an auto DM thanking you for the follow and give you links to their private blog or marketing site. Personally I don’t like auto DM, it is less personal and sounds weird if you followed back that person after they followed you first, and yet they thanking you for the follow like their follow was never happened.
Other than that, there are also spam tweets or DM’s that ask you to join any wars, quizzes, or a porn link. So you should be careful from these.
There will always be spam and bots following you on twitter; it’s easy to recognize any of them from the amount of their followers, their tweets, their avatar and bio.
This is the famous spam tweet ever, where they tweet on how to get your teeth whitened, its annoying, unless you want to get your teeth whitened
Totally a place to be creative with your words, where you need to be able to summarize your message in less than 140 characters and to get an RT without being cut off. Remember “Your tweet is your message to the world“
People who love to chat, people who love photography, people who love jokes, people who love to blog and many other people with the same interest as you are. Surely it will be fun to follow them as their tweet will be much of a value to your needs.
Technology is surely one thing that will always be a step forward, and on twitter you can assure that every technology updates will be always flying around your time line if you are following the right person, beside you can always share your side of technology updates.
This is what I like the most from people; sarcasm will always be there, either from me or from somebody else. It is the art of telling the truth in disguise.
Twitter nowadays is the ultimate source of a news updates, I’m too lazy to turn on the TV, too lazy to buy a newspaper, I would rather open the twitter from my phone and until now I am the person who knows everything first (among my friends and family) thanks to twitter.
Any gossips, rumors or entertainment news will also be there, you just have to know how to search it within twitter timeline. For example, if nothing on the trending about some celebrity, you just type on twitter search about their name, and you’ll find what people talk about that celebrity. It is the fastest way than grabbing some entertainment magazine.
As you know, Twitter is worldwide, and every issues of the world will easily be found around, these days world issues are Palestine and Oil spilled.
Lots of big event that happened on the other side of the world, and some people will tweet about it for sure, so there you are enjoying it as if you watch it by yourself.
Definitely a place for sharing your blog post or personal site and receiving feed back about it.
If you have lots of followers who like your blog, then it surely boosts your blog’s traffic by receiving comments, ping back and track backs. If you are a WordPress user, you will surely love this post => [How To] Boost your Old posts with Twitter in WordPress
There’s no limitation on a number of followers. Not like Facebook that limits you to a number of friend you can add, so you’ll have unlimited followers/stalkers here.
New feature from twitter that enable you to listed some people into a category that you name by yourself, and also you can be in any list, from that I think its a recognition, where people who listed you, recognize you as something, such as Inspirational, friends, great resources etc.
You can follow anyone you want (unless they lock their profile to private) any stranger or any celebrities that on twitter (mostly they are now).
If you follow your favorite celebrity, you will get to know what are they up to from their tweets, so pretty much stalking them eh?
Some people or a fan, will try to talk to that celebrity by tweeting to them, some are lucky enough to get noticed by them.
I witness some crazy fans, who always talk to some celebrity, even if there’s no reply back to them, well, that’s just being the biggest fan is all about.
Anyone on the other side of the world will surely tweet out things that they are watching on their TV; from there we know what the top TV series is lately. I saw Lost, Glee, Romantically challenged on my time line lately.
Any movie updates that you heard, will bring you to the question of that movie premier schedule, and just ask through a tweet, you’ll get the answer.
A movie discussion will always be there, 1 or 2 person who follows you could be a movie buff too.
Twitter is also a place to share music and video, so from there you got your updates, beside from the respective celebrity.
One of the other ways to tweet is to share your favorite song, either from blip.fm or grooveshark.com or just tweet #nowplaying and the title of the song that you are listening to.
Trending Topic is the thing that people most discussed on twitter, you can get involved by clicking one of it, or just see what actually going on so that lots of people talking about it.
Twitter is the fastest place to alert some people on anything, also for a missing person, no matter if you’re not on the area of that missing person, by Retweet the alert, you are spreading the words. Who knows one of your followers saw it and know some information regarding that missing person.
