Social Media is a revolution in the way we communicate and the current Social Media Platforms like Facebook, Pinterest …. and Twitter are just that: Tools

 Twitter is my favourite Platform right now. What appeals to me is the real-time conversation, the openness and the limitation to 140 characters. I use Twitter for many things and I like it best for connecting with individuals that I wouldn’t have met otherwise.

But Twitter is just a tool with about 500 Million accounts  (my guess is that about 1/3 are unused)

I have discovered incredible people on Twitter and I even credit Twitter for finding the love of my life. But enough about me.

I recently asked “How do you use Twitter” on my Facebook Page and ended up with great answers. I’m putting in the answers in the listly below but let’s make this post dynamic:
