Why I Use Twitter (and You Should, Too)

I love me some Twitter.  I use it all the time even if I’m not posting every day and I think you should use Twitter, too.  Here’s why:

1) News comes to you.  You can follow your favorite news service and all of their news lands right on your Twitter page.  You can even search out your favorite journalists and follow them.

2) You can also find and follow your favorite celebrity/actor/comedian/athlete/chef/band/whatever and interact with them.  You want to know more about the dude that plays Gus on the hit USA original series, Psych?  Just click here.  If you’re at the right place at the right time, you can sometimes get free or discounted tickets to your favorite band.

3) It can save you money.  If you have a smartphone, you can use Twitter as a text messaging service.  All you have to do is download the Twitter app and set your phone to alert you when you get a Direct Message from Twitter.  Bam, text message replacement.  Now all you have to do is talk all your friends into joining Twitter (just like I’m trying to do right now [is it sad that I think I can reach all my friends by posting on my blog?]).

4) It’s fun.  People post hilarious shit and it’s almost always the first place I read about any big news item and it makes it really easy to share all the cool stuff you find.  It’s Facebook without all the bullshit.

Now that I’ve totally convinced you to join Twitter, I’ll expect you to let me know when you join so that I can follow you and we can start being awesome together.
