I stumbled upon twitter when it was getting more and more popular. I became very curious and created an account. At first, I did not know how to start off and just followed a few people.

When I began using twitter more, I built more and more relationships on twitter. Soon, I began using twitter a lot. It brought good traffic to my blog. (At one point, twitter brought more than 100 visitors to my blog).

Back to where we were – here’s the main 5 reasons I use twitter.

1. Network

Twitter is a great way to build relationships and connect with people. I’ve made many friends from all over the world through using twitter to converse with them.

I also earned a lot of loyal readers and subscribers.

2. Driving traffic

Twitter is also a good way to drive traffic. As I mentioned earlier, twitter brought more than 100 visitors to my blog at one point (I tracked it using http://tr.im). That’s because many people retweeted it.

A retweet is a tweet that is being retweeted again, giving credit to the original person who wrote the tweet.

3. Share

When I stumble upon a interesting site, I’d say to myself, “Wow! I must tweet this!”

I want to provide value to my followers. So, if I come across an interesting/helpful article or site, I would surely tweet it for my followers.

And if they think it is interesting, they might probably retweet me, sharing the interesting article to a larger audience.

4. It’s useful

Most of the great sites I found (that I’ve bookmarked on my browser) are discovered from twitter. The people I follow sometimes send out great tweets that has a link in them. I discover great sites from clicking them.

I can also do a research using twitter by asking a question. My followers would answer my question.

5. It’s fun

Guess what? Twitter is also fun! It is fun to interact with people and share cool links. It is also fun to visit interesting sites that the people I follow are sharing.
