Don't make fun of me for using Twitter.
Don't look down on me for being a social media fanatic or say I'm just jumping on the bandwagon when you don't even know what it is.

I'm connected with my friends, classmates, and teachers.
I can showcase my work directly to people that actually care about my work.
If I have something important or funny to say or ever if I just want to link everyone to a great article I've read I can do that in less than thirty seconds.

My posts don't get lost in 300+ "recent updates" of things that are irrelevant to your life.
If I want to say something to my fellow CreCommers I just have to put a "#" in front of the word CreComm and I can be found so easily in a search.
Employers and professionals in my field can find me and get a sense of my personality and what's important to me.

I see on my timeline only what I care about seeing.
I get up to the minute updates on local and international news
I see what my highschool friends are up to and what my classmates are working on.
My teachers can communicate with me and all my other classmates simply and efficiently.

I don't need to tolerate four new albums a day of everyones cats. I'm allergic therefor I don't care.
I don't need to know when someone I went to elementary school with broke up with her boyfriend of a month. I also don't care.
I don't get 20 emails within an hour of other people commenting on the same picture I commented on 3 days ago. If I like something I can just retweet it and be done with it.

Twitter rocks. Stop looking down on people that use it and forming opinions and what you don't know. Try it out for yourself!

  1. I've noticed that Twitter haters mostly haven't used it. "Oh, I know what it is, but I don't care what Aston Kutcher had for breakfast."

    Well, you don't have to follow Ashton - so if you're seeing those messages: it's your fault! So there!
