Most people think that using Twitter is a way to announce what you are going to do or what you have been doing for the past couple of hours, minutes or even days. While that is true, Twitter is also useful for other things. Having a Twitter account means you can get a whole lot of sources from other users, too.
This is because people have realized the potential of Twitter to be more than just an announcement message type of application. These people have become professional knowledge sharers, and Twitter is your source of information.
For instance, the fashionista in need of the latest source of fashion and shopping information would be able to log on to Twitter and look for like-minded individuals. As soon as the sales hit the stores, these people would be announcing such things or getting their shopping mates ready for the next big spree.
Financial analysts and investors have also realized the potential of Twitter as a source of valuable information. Many a trader have closed great exchanges through frantic, fresh off the minute news via Twitter – information that could cause them ruin or rake in the big bucks.
And of course, students and teacher can get connected to the latest source of vital information on how the other is doing – things such as upcoming exams or reminders work well on Twitter. If you are also a high school student, you and your group mates working on a project could coordinate with research links and status updates on individual responsibilities.
