I have been approached by someone to start “Twittering”. Apparently, this is the new and fun way to become involved in social networking via the Internet. Please pardon my ignorance, but I don’t understand.
With all the ways to invade one’s privacy nowadays, especially via online communications, isn’t this just another way for Big Brother to watch one’s every move? (That is, if one wants to update the site on a regular basis).
I have heard of people involved in the Twitter community as having received book deal offers, real life networking opportunities, and other positive effects involving advancing one’s career. However, I need to wonder…..should I listen to my intuition telling me “no, you’re uncomfortable, this is strange”…or start Twittering in the hopes of advancing my career?
What do you think? Is Twittering a good idea? Why or why not? Any feedback is appreciated. I’d like to hear about others’ experiences with this social networking craze. I’m confused….
