Twitter means different things to different people. Twitter itself may not be as entertaining as NL but a lot of applications built around it are. What can one do with twitter?

You can make money from it:

1. For example, <a target="_blank" href="http://spn.tw/roIh">sponsored tweets</a> allows advertisers pay you for tweeting their product promotions. If you have thousands of followers, its a nice way to make small change.

2. Amazopn Associates recently incorporated twitter for promoting affiliate links. As a marketter, you just need to post tweets containing products to promote and of course you affiliate link to your followers.

3. What about writing about twitter or developing mashups from twitter api? You name them tweetdeck, twitphoto etc. These guys are reaping massive income from the twitter revolution.

You can keep up with latest news

1. Twitter is a great tool to drive traffic to your site. Wordpress and other blogging platforms have plugins that automatically publish your posts to twitter. If you have plenty of followers, they in turn re-tweet the titles.

2. What about building relationships? I follow most of the big blogs and personal idols/individuals on twitter. You actually get these people responding to your questions. You may get lucky to strike up a personal relationship with them.

3. Use twitter to announce product launches etc

You can keep up with latest news

1. The best example that came to my mind here was during the Mumbai terrorist attack. The world kept intouch with the victims via twitter. Mention any other major emergency. Twitter played a big role in keeping us up to date with live info.

2. Every major boradcaster, or newspaper has a twitter account. You dont have to follow everyone of them.

3.For ajournalist, its a fast and efficient way of keeping up with news can contribute a lot to a business is not only for sending around

Twitter is fun and if you follow the right tweets you get first hand gist. CNNbrk news, BBCbrk news are two of the best tweets to follow. If you like entertainment you can follow E!news too. A lot of naija artist are on twitter and you can follow their everyday updates. I use BB twitter and the application is quite stable and easy to navigate. Using twitter on Zain BB BIS is cost effective also.

I've never used Twitter, so can't comment. From just browsing the site, it didn't do anything for me though.

Am on Twitter but barely post updates. It's kinda dry for me especially with the idea of me following someone's post or people following mine. I'm more of a Facebook addict. I spend practically half of my time daily "facebooking".

Twitter is for very jobless people and very serious people. I fall in neither of 'em categories. Facebook too. I still have a facebook account cuz I have to upload my photo albums of do-it-yourself dismantling of electronics.

The tweeting idea has never made sense to me. You just waste time and blab, people "follow" you and blab as well. At the end its all blabs. No offense intended to any tweeter, just talking my mind.

1. It should be around N1/tweet on MobileWeb.

2. Any phone company, The current Number is 40404, but You can still update w/ +44762801423 = Standard SMS Rate.

3. iLike TwitPic because all my Tweets are stored there. Mixing Two Picture host is like wasting ya time cuz U can culled those images back,

That's my 2 cents!
