If I'm a normal user of Facebook. Why would I use Twitter?

Facebook took what Twitter wanted to be

Twitter is great for real-time information.

You follow interesting people. You look at a real-time feed. Etc.

People use it for news and to follow famous people

The majority of users never tweet. Instead they use it follow cool people.

Twitter wanted to be the place for real time

Real time is the best place for news and information. Following makes it possible to get info from anybody and not just your friends.

But Facebook stepped in.

By adding in hashtags for indexing, promoting curated top news on the side bar, and allowing following/lists on Facebook

For mass consumers, the value prop is better on FB

Easy access to news. Killer curation algorithm. No pressure about who to follow. Follow people who come to mind. Searching gets you the public real-time info you want

So if I'm a normal user of Facebook

Why would I use Twitter?
