Neil and Jon Twitter Experience

From our experience with Twitter, we have come to the conclusion that it seems to be more meaningless than actually providing any value. The advantage of Twitter is how well you can waste your time by getting involved with a conversation that most often than not is just meaningless. Twitter can be beneficial because you can get information quickly, but email and instant messaging can provide the same features. From a marketing standpoint, you can have all the followers on Twitter, but it does not convert into any actual profit benefit. What happens on Twitter is everyone else is advertising their products, so when you try to advertise your products no one cares because most of everything is just spam. Other disadvantages to Twitter are that it limits your messages. Most of the direct messages that we have received were spam. They also use Twitter on the news which just waists airtime and does not add any value to the news broadcast. Also, everyone else that we have asked also considers Twitter to be silly and meaningless. It seems that the people who most benefit from Twitter are those looking for gratification and attention (a.k.a. celebrities).

  1. I couldn't agree more about celebrities! Twitter is lame unless your famous, and even then it's not cool!
