Going to the playground could make you money!
Recently I participated in an author’s blog challenge. I was able to meet a number of others others and it was absolutely wonderful!
The daily prompts revolved around social media. I found out about a couple of author sites I didn’t know existed so that was awesome.
I also found out about some other less known social media sites.
When we were talking about twitter I looked for little known facts I could share.
How about we go to the playground? Maybe if we do we can create a multi million dollar business.
What do I mean by that? 1) According to what I found twitter was created on a playground by it’s founders. They climbed up a slide and thought about the idea of simply writing (right up my alley).
Does that make you want to go to the playground?
2) I have always wondered if that cute little twitter bird had a name. Turns out he does!
Do you name his name? It’s Larry. Larry Bird. He was named after the Boston Celtics Larry Bird.
3) Twitter didn’t create hashtags, retweets, replies, mobile apps or social ads. These were created by users and developers. Although Twitters supports these features the inventors are not making any money. Supposedly they have to wait for Twitters IPO.
It’s so interesting to find out how this particular social networking site with over 200 million active users got started.
I think what I like most about twitter is that it’s quick. You can look down your lists to see what interests you and click to get further info if you want.
Twitter forces you to come up with some pretty intriguing headlines so that people will click on the link in your post.
I have found that more people share my posts on twitter whereas I get a lot of “likes” on Facebook.
I’ve found some really great information by using Twitter and have connected with some great people.
I enjoy twitter because it’s short and sweet.
Did you realize Twitter has 500 million total users and that more than 200 million of those are active? Now that’s something to tweet about!
More and more on popular shows like “The Voice” they encourage you to tweet about the show and the contestants. When it’s Oscar time people are constantly tweeting about who’s wearing what.
Twitter is embraced by businesses and people in general who want to connect.
Twitter chats are becoming quite popular as well. Have you ever joined in on one?
My question to you is, how do you feel about twitter? Are you active?
