Dear people who say "Twitter is stupid" or "[insert high traffic social network here] is pointless"

I am writing to you today to point out your ignorance. Please bare with me as I take you through this clear fact.

You have looked at the concept of sending open messages of 140 characters to the general human populus of Earth and thought “why the heck would I do that?” But there are several aspects to Twitter. Today, I will outline three. I shall dub them as follows: The Public User; The Private User; The Receiving User.

The Public User

This is the twitter account that anyone can view. Used for businesses or politicians or other public figures. Also used by people that have things to say and want people to see them. Without these users, Twitter would be useless. Good examples would be my twitter (@danielfarrellnz), CNN Breaking News (@cnnbrk), Vodafone NZ (@vodafonenz) or Prime Minister John Key (@johnkeypm).

The Private user

These are users who want to be able to share information easily with people they know. An example would be @victoria_baird.

The Receiving User

This is the person who doesn’t want to tweet but does want to get information. From news like @BreakingNews and @nzherald to sport teams like
@NZBreakers and @celtics to businesses like @giapo and @2degreesmobile.

See, social networks work if you let them.So embrase technolog y
