Why I want Twitter to flourish

by @ivasef85

'Back in my day...'

'TheFacebook' came to my college in 2004. I had heard about it through a friend. It was quietly being introduced to campuses nationwide. As a sophmore in college, this was a game changer...

Throwback Facebook

If you were in college around 2004 or 2005, the Facebook you recall then was much different than now.

Free-for-all

By September 2006, Facebook opened its doors to anyone at least the age of 13 who had a valid email address. A few years later, EVERYBODY and their grandparents had a Facebook account.

Altered Beast

Sure enough, like most companies eventually do...Facebook became a monster

Growing Pains

My Facebook feed was now filled with more and more weddings and baby pictures . The 'cool factor' it had during college fizzled for me and outside of Messenger, I started using it less..

Time for a change

Where to next?

2009..

When Twitter was launched, I was a lurker. In 2009, I decided to give in the Twitter hype among social media peeps and joined!

'Damn son..where'd you find this?'

Twitter felt like the 'anti-facebook' for me. An open search for discovering info, cool people to follow , trending topics and no more abrasively long Facebook rants

Grow your business

With Twitter search, I noticed the potential for business development early on and even consulted a friend of mine on how to find new customers for his business (Web Hosting). #Win

Be your authentic self

What drew me to Twitter was that I could be myself and follow others with similar interests in: Tech/Entrepreneurship, NBA and Hip-Hop. Dope!

Connect with influencers

Where else can you have a 1 to 1 engagement with influencers and dream mentors ? Just don't be annoying and people will notice you!

Laugh with the world

Crying Jordan face. On everyone and everything. 'Nuff said.

Growth problems

Yes, I know, Twitter isn't doing so well in these corporate streets. However, it is still the go-to platform for breaking news, sports commentary and tailored trending topics.

What are you waiting for?

If you've ignored Twitter by now, you're missing out in my humble opinion:) Give it a chance and you might see the value it offers. It's free 99. Like everything else, you get what you put in.
