Twitter is one of the best tools to connect to other like-minded people, but the question remains why do you use twitter? Do you use it to connect to friends or do you use it as a marketing tool? For me, Twitter is a marketing tool. Since I connect to other bloggers using Twitter and get traffic for my blog and others.
I know many of you might not agree with that Twitter is a marketing tooling reason being most of us used it as another social connection tool. No doubt Twitter is a social tool and so is other social bookmarking sites like, Stumble Upon and Delicious. But the bottom line remains the same “Traffic”. Everyone needs traffic to their blog or services and most important targeted traffic. Twitter is one such platform that provides you with targeted traffic if only, you use it wisely.
Many people have asked me how to drive traffic from Twitter and to be honest it’s not easy as its sound. On the other hand, it’s not tough. A Little bit of work and you can start attracting people to your Twitter profile, and hence your blog.
My point here is, for the social connection we already have Facebook and Google+.
The bottom line remains the same, why do you use twitter for? Just as a social connection tool or as a marketing tool? I will love to know your opinion.
