    Five Stages of Twitter Acceptance
    1. Denial
    – “I think Twitter sounds stupid. Why would anyone care what other people
    are doing right now?”
    2. Presence
    – “Ok, I don’t really get why people love it, but I guess I should at least create an account.”
    3. Dumping
    – “I’m on Twitter and use it for pasting links to my blog posts and pointing
    people to my press releases.”
    4. Conversing
    – “I don’t always post useful stuff, but I do use Twitter to have authentic one-on-one conversations.”
    5. Microblogging
    – “I’m using Twitter to publish useful information that people read and converse one-on-one authentically.”
