What do people Twitter about and why do others care?

30 Sep Posted by in Twitter | 11 comments

Question by Signilda: What do people Twitter about and why do others care?
I don’t get the whole Twitter fad. Who cares about the minuscule details of a random person’s life? Why do people care so much on Twitter, yet no one cares about anyone in their own neighborhoods and communities anymore. Everyone just walks around with their noses in their iphones and don’t even bother to look up and say “hi” to people they know.

Best answer:

Answer by !!!
I don’t get it…
I don’t care what people do every minute of their lives…
I have my own life to worry about….
I barely even go on my facebook page.

What do you think? Answer below!

    It’s like Myspace. i remember being in school hearing guys talk about like it was real serious. It irritated me how people got their feelings hurt over the freaking internet.

    PS: I didn’t know the word myspace could be corrected by spell checker

    I have no idea … and the last part with saying “hi” … it doesn’t seem right or fair to me … i mean … it seems like their lives are revolving around the internet -virtual world – … and … that’s not right … at least not in my point of view.
    So … I don’t give a tweet about twitter!

    Well to be honest, I don’t really follow the whole, “What are you doing” thing; maybe when I go to sleep and when I wake up but I think of Twitter as an instant messenger except you’re limited to few characters. Sure it seems more meaningful to actually IM the person instead but I run out of things to talk about there; Twitter is more random and you can converse more.

    As far as people in communities go, I’m not sure? I hate calling people on the phone but I use Twitter to keep in contact with friends from school. Even some of my family members have gotten into it; it’s just more convenient, funner, and easier to use than most other networking sites.

    I didn’t see the point in the beginning either but once I learned all the features they had, I became hooked. Just try it? I’m not guaranteeing that you’ll like it or hate it but it can’t be THAT much of a waste of time?

    I am a 46 year old man and I spend a great deal of time on Twitter for a very good reason. The reason is its power to build my healthy chocolate business. Given that you would think that my main focus is to tell people about chocolate, right? WRONG!

    That’s the last thing I want to share with people on Twitter. Instead tweeting about things that will help them is what is important for everyone to know about.

    Here are some things that I tweet about.
    * The top 5 users of a particular keyword
    * My Twitter EBook and Twitter Tips program that I hold
    ===> Tweet @BodyByChocolate for info about that
    * Articles I get paid to write for Associated Content.
    ===> (Cool free tool)
    * Highly relevant articles to my audience that I find on
    * FollowFriday and other events

    Simply put, by being part of the community instead of focused just on self you will find Twitter to be extremely relevant to your purposes. Obama sure did.

    It’s like text messaging without giving away your phone number. Here are some reasons:

    1. For celebrities (actors,singers,bands,etc) – It’s an easy way to connect to their fans without having to friend each one, or give away their email.

    2. For business – Marketing! any form of social sites is good for small business.

    3. A form of replacing RSS Feeds. Have you ever used an rss feed to follow a site? Instead of going to a website to see whats new, the messages will come to you all in one place. You do not have to visit the actual site.

    4. It is easy to use! with Myspace and Facebook you have to fill out so many things, or the layout is just too much. Twitter is straight forwad. It is just a wall of messages.

  • Kevin says:

    Generally speaking Twitter panders to our need for random aceptance by people we do not necessarily know on a personal level. Its a social media site that relies on good manners to a certain extent but allows the user to adopt another persona and to allow a certain amount of fantasy to enter thier otherwise mundane life.

    Twitter is a fun way to stay connected with your friends without spending three hours trawling through six tons of spam marketing and Applications that facebook and myspace are famous for.

  • Robert H says:

    In the past neighbors used to sit out on the porch and talk but now everyone is always in a hurry to get somewhere . However they still feel a need to keep in touch. Twitter feeds this need just like texting anfd I/M . Lately the evening news and entertainment shows have jumped on board. A few weeks ago with the political unrest in Iran the government treid to shutdown the Internet to stop the news from spreading . Using twitter and videophones the word still got out. Also there was a bank hostage situation where a woman was trapped inside and was tweeting to her daughter who then relayed info to the police outside. This is a new technology that will find it’s place as things settle down.
