People are connecting. And people are sharing experiences and happenings fast and always. People get to converse with their family and friends always. They get to update each other about small and mundane things. This is what Twitter brings to the lives of many people.

But to many people connecting beyond just their family and friends is also important. They like to build a community of people who have the same interests as theirs. They follow these people’s tweets and connect with them. Other people do the same to them and they welcome that.

That is why a feature such as the Twitter Maps is appreciated by many. By having such application people get to see and they get to know from where tweets are coming from. They learn where the person they are tweeting with is from. The connection even becomes closer.

Twitter even becomes exciting because of this. One can actually validate where his new friends are from. And they see it through the Twitter Maps. Twitter Maps is, of course, made possible by the team up of Twitter and Google maps. Twitter is using the capabilities of Google maps in order to be able to display the maps and locate the Twitter users.

This feature in a way gives Twitter users a glimpse of what is happening around the world. Opinions all over the world can be gathered through this real-time platform. News posts made from everywhere are validated through Twitter Maps since everybody will at least know that the person posting is actually there in the area.

The draw that Twitter has on its users is the ease of using it. Posts are short so there’s no need to think what to write. When one poses a question, others only have to answer. One can also post updates as things are happening. In short, people are updated as things happen. Unlike a blog, one gets to the point immediately. So it’s easy on its readers or followers. Twitter replies can be made in seconds too.

The good thing about Twitter is being updated almost all the time. Since people are posting in real time, it’s possible to get replies all the time. What about when the person is in mobile? That is not a problem since Twitter can be used in mobile phones as well. As Twitter replies are posted, one can be notified through their phones as well. They can also post their own Twitter replies to the other person.

Of course, while tweeting at home or perhaps at the office one gets his Twitter replies normally through the site. Alternatively, he can install an application so he can get them through his browser.

Here’s one tip for those who want to get all his Twitter replies though. Don’t forget to change the settings of the notices. It must set so that all replies are shown. If this step is not done, one would only get replies from the people he is following.

So there is no reason why one would miss any of his Twitter replies. No matter where he is or what he’s doing there is always a way for the notification to reach him. He can therefore take advantage of Twitter all the time.
