Twitter. It's everywhere. Newscasters mention it. Political analysts point to its influence. Marketers use it to get messages out. Journalists and bloggers use it for research. Regular folks use it to keep up with their friends, family, and co-workers. And, people of all types use it for entertainment, research, and education. But, Twitter is more than all of these things combined. It's a revolution in content publishing and its changing forever -- or at least for now -- how we communicate what's important to us to those who want to know.

  • What is Twitter? It’s a microblogging website; one of the fastest growing networks on the planet Thursday, June 11, 2009
  • quot;Twitter is a device-agnostic real-time message-routing platform—which is a fancy way of saying that it can send messages to and receive them from a variety of devices simultaneously, at the moment a message is sent.quot; Sarah Millstein, author of “Twitter and the Micro-Messaging Revolution” (O’Reilly) Thursday, June 11, 2009
  • What is a Tweet? A post to Twitter is called a Tweet, a 140 (or fewer) character text message Thursday, June 11, 2009

  • quot;I started using Twitter and then decided it was just too much trouble and I really don't want that much information coming at me all day long. So, I deleted my account.quot; Lisa Seaburg, President, Aeon (XML consulting firm) Thursday, June 11, 2009
  • quot;I use it to inform, get news and plug links I find. In my opinion, I think that there are a few too many people expressing ‘the right way’ to use Twitter. The whole point is that it is random. It also integrates with your Facebook status, which is very helpful.quot; Monica Valentinelli, copywriter, web analyst Thursday, June 11, 2009
  • quot;Many people use Twitter for communicating with friends and family. I use Twitter for networking and personal branding. Most of my tweets are business- oriented.

  • quot;I use Twitter for a variety of reasons.

  • quot;Additionally, I use Twitter to follow the findings of a select few innovative people/ groups that provide links to interesting solutions as well as articles and traditional blogs. By following smart folks, I have access to an intelligent filter for marketing and interactive content.” Robert Bectel, Managing Partner, Quorum Sense Consulting Thursday, June 11, 2009
  • quot;Finally, I use it to communicate with my wife. Our “Tweets” move quickly to email and mobile devices which we both have, and guarantee that we aren’t missing important messages such as ‘Honey, get the kids from school. My meeting is running long’.” Robert Bectel, Managing Partner, Quorum Sense Consulting Thursday, June 11, 2009
  • quot;I use Twitter to promote the store -- specifically to post upcoming tasting events (and a reminder on the day of the event), just-arrived beers, to promote new content on our store blog, and notify folks of any special hours or weather closures.” Tiffany (Hereth) Adamowski, Technical Writer and part time beer store manager Thursday, June 11, 2009
