My Twitter Experience

      I had never heard of Twitter until my professor for my Intro to Public Relations course introduced it to the class. Twitter is website that allows a person to create a profile and then you can make posts about anything you would like to talk about. You can follow other users of this website and see what they post or chat with them. It allows you to connect with people all around the world at any time. At first when I started to use Twitter I was a little hesitant. I have a facebook account and have always preferred it to any other similar websites. I was so used to using Facebook that it was uncomftorable (I guess would be the right word?) using something that seemd like a knock off version. However, after a second glance at Twitter I realized how helpful it could be. Im still new to the website and haven’t yet excersied all I can from it but I’ve come to realize what a great way it is to not just stay connected with people but GET connected with people. Through the search engine you can type in any keyword to help you find a person or company having to do with it. If your are interested in an internship you could type in the type of internship your looking for and if a person has that listed as an interest you could follow them, see if their career intails what your looking for and find out if the company they work for is looking for interns. You should always excericise extreem caution before giving out personal information but Twitter can help keep your privacy. You can also use Twitter if you have a question about anything. Post your question and wait to see who responds to it, a lot of the time you will get helpful feedback. After a week of Twitter I’ve only just started to realize how helpful it can be  but as I continue to use it and grow used to I’m sure I can use it to network and use it in the future.
