It’s no secret Twitter has gain much popularity to Facebook/Myspace status if not better. With more battles like Ashton Kutcher vs. CNN will keep it at the top. I’m not going to lie. I’m still testing the waters with this whole Twitter thing. Although it does have its perks.
You can connect or promote without all the distractions Facebook and Myspace offer. Seriously, I’ve come to the point where I don’t even like logging in on Facebook anymore. It’s more of a game site rather than social networking. Most invites I get are for apps. The charm is starting to wear off. Myspace wasn’t all that bad at first until they started trying to compete with Facebook by adding apps. I swear it is so annoying having to wait for all the apps to load on someone’s Myspace page.
Twitter is stripped of all of that. It’s really refreshing. Yes, it has it’s own set of apps but not the kind that clutters up someone’s page. The only application I’ve downloaded is Digsby and I have to say I’m not loving it. I know the Wiki page has a list of options but I’m open to recommendations.
The bottom line is this little micro-blogging social network will remain popular until the next big thing pops up. You might as well take advantage of its power.
