My Journey Through Twitter

by geeky_yang

Twitter was hard at first...

In the beginning, I only used it for news and RTs...

I didn't really see the point of it...

Then one day, I decided to REALLY try and understand it...

I started following people WHO I felt could help me...

I started ENGAGING with them...


I started to TWEET more and more...

I started to make lots of CONNECTIONS...

I've met so MANY great people online and in person from it..

To this day, I'm still connecting with AMAZING people...

Now, I am a complete fanboy of the platform...

And hope to CONTINUE to make more and more connections...

So what's YOUR story on Twitter? :)

I first used Twitter while helping a friend with the Social for her business. When I realized Twitter is about conversation- Mind.Blown. Meeting interesting new people is the best

I used Twitter off and on. I joined in 2009 and just used it to share updates about myself which were pretty random. I took nearly a year off from Twitter in 2010 until I found a community of people in agriculture who were using a hashtag to talk to each other and I thought this was the greatest thing that ever happened. That's where I, like you, really started connecting with people and then when live streaming came along it became about connecting people to people. That's why I RT farm & animal pics all the time so people can hopefully engage with agriculture through Twitter the way I have been able to.

Hahaha this is basically my story on Twitter too xD @lelper @andrew @slisam @sarharibhakti @timosolo @sanemavcil @sara @rometty_ @TheStefanStokic @varadhjain I think you guys can relate :D Do you guys remember your first moment on Twitter? I remember when I first joined I didn't get it. I sent a few tweets, got no engagement, and then left. Months later I decided to try to use it for growth so thought of some ways to automate it. Then some time later, I realized how terrible that was and ended up finding the people I love on there.
