Getting to Know Twitter 2

Create A Buzz
There are several advantages to this type of rapid communication, similar to instant messaging, but public. The first thing that you will discover is that it allows for a much more immediate relay of information.  The shortness of the message forces you to be very brief, and this alone can create interest in those reading.

Frequency
Because tweets are so short, they often lead to frequent posting, which is excellent when you are looking to communicate with people and to get to know them.  While Twitter is, by default, public, you can restrict the people who see your material with the ease of checking a box in your profile.

Find Out What’s Going On with Others
You will find that not only can you post tweets, you can also receive them.  Once again, the immediate nature of this service lends greatly to its appeal.
