Why Do You Tweet? November 24, 2009

This post is a work in progress.  to be reread and edited many times is my guess.  I do know I still need to add quite a few answers to the question.  I look forward to your criticism and input to improve this post.

I ask the question “Why Do You Tweet?” on Twitter.  I realize that this question has most definitely been asked before, but I was still curious.  What I found wasn’t to surprising and you may also not be surprised, most people are trying to find a connection.

When I say connection it comes in many ways, you have marketer’s, celebrities, news seekers, humorists and much more.  What I did notice was the fact that most of us just want to be heard we want someone to listen to us, the connection comes down need the need of being wanted.  The ultimate need for humanity to socialize.

We all have an instinct to want to connect we go to parties, we go out to dinner or coffee with friends or to meet new people.  This for the majority of the world is all that we need.  But people who Tweet have a greater need there curiosity for what’s happening in the world a crave and in fact may be even an addiction to get more information and to share that information on a huge scale.

Tweeters want to socialize with the world they want to be heard and in some ways want to be celebrities in there own right.  As for why celebrities tweet well it’s to talk about what they are working on, to let fans know, in there own words what they are really up to.  Yes we heard that before, however I have a belief that many celebrities may have a need to connect because they want to socialize outside their own celebrity status. To see a little of the average person and possibly find what’s real.

Here are some of the answers I got and more are to be added.

Everyone has been sharing this on Twitter and I thought it was fucking funny as hell, course hell ain’t that funny for some people. I also thought, that since so many people are putting this on their blogs then I should follow their lead, since I follow them on Twitter. It’s the Twitter thing to do after all.

How I met A Web Guy April 29, 2009

Now I really thinks I got lucky here, I was just digging around Twitter looking for people to follow. I was reading a couple of tweets in between when I read one tweet that said live web cast RT @murnahan http://www.awebguy.com/live/ . I can’t recall who tweeted it or if it said more, but it still caught my attention. I went to the web cast and there was this crazy guy on there shouting, “salad terrorist”! repeatedly in a getup that was like some poor Arab on crack. That was it, I was hooked. When someone is making a fool of himself like that, you can’t but wonder what’s going to happen next.

Just recently @murnahan Mark A. Murnahan and his wife @pegmu Peggy Murnahan had a baby boy name Jack. if you get a chance stop by and say hi to Mark, what a great guy.

This is such a fun blog post to write, because I am going to tell you how the “big dogs” in social media marketing get paid. I hear it all of the time, and many of my peers say they hear it, too … “so how do you make money with social media?”
Please note that this relates to social media marketing consultants who earn their living by helping clients with marketing their products or services better with social media. There are many branches to the field of social media, such as bloggers who earn money as writers and blog owners. There are providers, such as Twitter, Digg, Sphinn Linked In, Reddit, Facebook, etcetera. There are social media marketers who saw some success in the industry and decided to write a book about it and sell it to make money, and similarly those who speak about their success in public forums. These are various methods, and this article is not about them (maybe later).
