It is a secret to no one that I love twitter. And by love, I REALLY love it. I have had a twitter account since the summer of 2008, a bit ahead of my peers I guess. I originally got my twitter because one of my best friends was going to study abroad in Austria that year, and we thought we would be able to keep in touch through that since we couldn’t text each other. Long story short, that plan failed. However, I still ended up using my twitte. I think that witter is one of the best social networking sites of the most recent years. It’s brilliant!
I also use the app Tweetbot. I love it so much! I have it on my phone and on my Macbook Air. It is probably one of, if not the best twitter apps. I think my favorite feature is “muting,” where you can go and mute certain users or tags, so they do not pop up into your twitter feed. I hate to admit it, but there are definitely some people that I have muted so I don’t have to deal with the drama of unfollowing them!
Now that I’ve finished my gushing spree, I can tell you about my twitter experience with #adpr3600
For my pr writing class we were assigned to tweet an x amount of tweets for the semester. As a veteran of this site that was a synch for me. The only problem that I had dealt with the specific things that we were supposed to tweet. I felt unsure about whether or not I was doing my assignment correctly. I really loved going through the tag, and sharing conversations with my classmates. I kind of worry when the content gets regulated more, just because I feel like the material won’t be as organic. It may even alienate people from enjoying the site for what it is!
