If you're a Twitter nut (like me), you'll know immediately what the title of this post means.
If you haven't dabbled in Twitter yet you might be saying, "What the...?"
It's hard for Twitter addicts and tragics (like me) to believe but there are some people out there who still don't 'get' Twitter.
And some who, if they do 'get' it, don't get why you would do it.
The most common questions I get are:-
Do you know these people? No
How do you know they are not lying? WHAT??
Why would everyone get on Twitter to lie?
Do people really think the cyber world is only for stalkers and psychos? I guess some people do.
The other thing people ask is:-
Why do you care what celebrity is brushing their teeth?
Well somebody might care about that, but I don't. And that is the beauty of the Twitterverse, you create it, your very own world stylized just the way you like it.
Twitter is full of wonderful, witty, clever and caring people. You'll always find someone to back you up, give you support, make you laugh...sometimes out very loud!
It's a bit like high school only better because you can be friends with the cool kids, even if you are not so cool yourself.
You can tweet to your favourite celebrity and get completely starstruck when they tweet you back (or is that just me?).
You can hear major news stories before anyone else. Big news travels through Twitterland like wild fire.
But this doesn't all happen by itself. You don't just sign up and instantly have this amazing community at your fingertips...well you do but you have to set it up.
How do you do that?
When I joined I wondered what the fuss was about. It was just me and a blue bird asking, "What are you doing now?"...not scintillating. The first thing you must do is follow!
Follow, follow, follow.
How do you find people to follow?
Maybe you have some real life friends that have Twitter accounts...check them out first.
Then you can search for some topics of interest (hobbies, sporting, TV, celebrities, news, local areas). If you find some tweeps saying things you like, follow them.
After you've followed a few people, check out who they're following. If you like the look/sound of them, follow them, too! Hell, check out me, I'm @mumto2angels and I may be slightly biased but my list of 'tweetversational tweeps' are the most sensational tweeps in Tweetworld...follow ALL of them!!
So there you go, a quick 'how to' if you don't already know.
If you're not already there, hope to see you in Tweetsville real soon!!
Go on.....sign up!
