in love with twitter

this is me declaring my love for twitter.

Strange how it gets to you.  I didn’t really understand how it worked and need a few friends to talk me through it. But little by little, I started to understand. My tweet count grew and as it did, so did my fascination with this crazy new world.

So what’s so cool about Twitter. Well, it’s kind of hard to explain. But this is how it works for me:

In real life, I’m Megan: a newbie PR pro trying to figure out everything from how to perfect a press release to what social media really means.  In real life I’m green and sometimes it shows. I’m nervous around big-wigs but hungry to grow.

Twitter tears down all these walls. See, on Twitter, I’m still a newbie PR pro trying to figure out the ins and outs of the industry, but no one cares. Twitter is about communicating, sharing ideas, and making connections. I can share a thought with the CEO of a top firm across the globe or trade ideas with with a noob like myself. And it’s all good.

Want proof? Last week I watched the Vice Presidential debate on twitter. Over the weekend, the Communications Director of a big company sent me a blog he thought I might like. This morning, a blogger in Florida send me a word of encouragement after a rough morning at the office. All that after only a month of being an active twitterer.

I love Twitter for its simplicity. I love Twitter for its cut-to-the chase style. But mostly, I love twitter because it’s lead me to communicate in ways I never could before.

Are you on Twitter? Find me. Let’s chat. @megan_maguire

    Well, I know this is an older post, but I just found you via the smith alumnae blogroll (I’m an ’07), and I’m loving your blog. I’m now following you on twitter as well. I’m @irianamistifi.

    Thanks for providing some fun reading!
