So I have to admit, I was one of the people who was unsure about signing up for Twitter...but it isn't so bad!
I thought Twitter was for Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, and chronicling fights between Samantha Ronson and Lindsay Lohan, but I've discovered much more.
I must confess that I actually did have a Twitter account before we set one up in our Public Relations class this week. I had attened a comdey show by Louis CK (check him out, he is truly hilarious and has great delivery), and in my attempts to stalk him after his show(creepy I know, but I just love stand up comedians) saw that he had deactivated his Facebook and Myspace accounts, but did have a Twitter account. I actually even received a message from someone who had also gone to the show and actually met him....quite exciting.
So now that I've revived the account, here are a couple of things I've learned:
-You don't actually HAVE to hear undesired tweets. You can follow whoever you want, and keep those twit tweets far far away
-You can follow legitimate news sources and have useful headlines (especially superb for Journalism quizzes) at your fingertips. Currently I'm following CBC, The New York Times, The New Yorker just to name a few
-You CAN follow celebrities of your choice, and they're ususally fairly funny and entertaining.
-It's been a great way to get to know my fellow classmates and other students at Red River College
.....AND I can let you all know about this great opportunity...
