Do you tweet?

Had a couple of question for everyone about twitter:

1.) Do you have an account?

2.) Do you check it regularly?

3.) Do you follow WDW For Grownups? biggrin

4.) What kind of stuff do you use your account for?

If you don't have one are you considering trying it out?

Ditto.

I have enough with Facebook, this place and various car related forums to keep up with.

I'll say double ditto. It's hard enough for me to keep up with this forum!

1 - yes.
2 - yes.
3 - I do now silly
4 - interaction with folks who have similar interests; venting (I can't do that on FB)

I like it. I've learned things through Twitter that I would have no access to otherwise, and it's a great place to get quickhits about various interests all at once. I do need to learn how to manage it better, though. I feel like I miss alot. Any suggestions, Brad?

yes

If by regularly you mean in the background all day at work and whenever i am on the computer...yes

3.) Do you follow WDW For Grownups?

Yes

4.) What kind of stuff do you use your account for?

News, following people in my industry, disney sites, celebrities, catching up with friends that live far away

I have an account but seldom use it. Every couple of days I'll remember to check it - mostly for humor sake since I follow people who make me laugh.

I follow WDW for Grownups now!

I'm guessing if I ever get published I'll start using it a lot more...

It seems like it's best for people who need to network in their industry. Is that an accurate assessment?

For that and for people who have friends in other countries. You can send people "Direct Messages" that only they can see and it is like free international text messaging!

I would say that's true for the most part. There are days when I think it's the best thing ever, and days when I don't quite get the point. I would benefit from slowing down and learning how to better use it, I think, because it does seem that if you don't stay on top of it, you miss a lot, and I'm sure there's a way to manage that.

My problem with twitter is when I want to read someones twitter updates and all I see is this:

@whoever omg me too!
@thisperson I know right
@someonelse i do!

And I have to read for 45 minutes just to see that they got a Godiva Hot Chocolate from Starbucks and it totally burnt their tongue.

sadly, true. But funny nonetheless. Have you figured out that if you click the "in reply to XXX" at the bottom, you can see the original comment? Not that I figure out anything EVER before ANYONE else, but just in case....might save you some scrolling... waiting

Yes, yes, yes, and I use it to socialize with people of similar interests (in my case, travel) and well as promoting my blog posts. I've met so many cool people via Twitter. In fact, I've met a number of them in person since "meeting" them on Twitter and it's awesome. Most people in my real life don't share my passion for travel, so it's nice to be virtually surrounded by others of the same mindset.
