Twitter allows Twitter account holders to post 140 characters updates (called Tweets) as often as wanted. When a person follows other people on Twitter, the follower will be able to see the followed account's tweets. When someone follows you, they see your tweets. This makes for a constant stream of communication which can be sorted, manipulated, republished, commented upon and retweeted. All information published to Twitter becomes public and searchable through sites like Google.
Twitter is not a fad which is why every individual, business or professional that desires a web presence should have a Twitter account. Some advantages to having a Twitter account include getting insight by asking your audience questions, getting traffic to your web site and spreading your message through Twitter. Twitter is also a great way to connect on a personal level with employees, customers, potential customers and all others who might have an interest in you, your product or your service. Twitter can be used to help build brands and may be used to help get new customers by word of mouth (Tweets). Some Twitter users have connected with thousands of people they would have otherwise been unable to meet by any other means.
Twitter users have been known to book radio interviews, connect with potential business partners and find employment using Twitter. Twitter users can search Twitteror use other free Twitter management tools to see what others are saying about their products or services. For example, a quick search using the hashtag #SemperFi will turn up information on the United States Marine Corps. After finding what other Twitter users are talking about in #SemperFi, enter the conversation.
