So Why is Everyone so Crazy About Twitter?


If you’re an artist who is still reluctant to join Twitter, this post is for you.

So why is everyone so crazy about 140 characters?  I mean, you can use as many words as you want on facebook. Why sign up for a twitter account? Here’s why…

1. Twitter accurately reflects an impatient culture. If you’re like most people, you have a low attention span and split you attention across several forms of media at any given time on any given day. Twitter is fast. It shares a snippet of information with people who probably wouldn’t read the full longer version. And if they do want the longer version, you can just include a link.

3. Less is More. In addition, because your information is concise, your audience is more likely to take in and remember what youv’e said.

2. Twitter is the home of “word of mouth”. I said this in Monday’s post. Twitter has gained a reputation for being an easy platform for people to share their interests. Simple actions like re-tweeting (i.e. reposting your original tweet to their friends)  give fans the opportunity to spread your information to a completely new network for people.  It’s genius, really.

3. Less is More. Because your information is concise, your audience is more likely to take in and remember what youv’e said.

4. ROI: Return on Interest. You put little effort in, you get a huge return- engaged readers, retweets, traffic to your website…etc.

5. Be Active Even When Your Not. Lets say you don’t really have any new information for your website(s).  Tweeting daily reminds your fans that you still exist even though you stagnant website might indicate otherwise.
