Remember the Hyde thing a few weeks ago and all the news coming from twitter land? Being without a clue about hashtags, tweets, or uses for twitter; I decided to do a little research. I want to give you a few of my findings about twitter (and other social media mediums.)
1). Twitter is amazingly efficient in getting people's panties in a wad long before any wadding needs to be done. With one incident, I experienced feelings of betrayal, hopelessness, vindication, hope, anger, relief, having all the answers, having none of the answers, all within a few hours.
2). Twitter is the most expeditious way to inform the community that the expanse of air between earth's surface and space, consisting of nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and water vapors, is deteriorating so quickly that the earth's enormous mass is pulling pieces of said expanse hurling back toward the surface, causing justified fear, panic, and hopelessness.
3). Twitter is a fun way share humorous insights to the whole world that only a few people will actually comprehend.
4). We can just as easily confirm what has or has not happened by what was not tweeted.
As a newbie to the social media world I would be extremely grateful, if others who are more experienced in this realm could offer more fabulous uses for twitter.
