to tweet or not to tweet


do you tweet? do you follow others? do you only follow other tweeters on a regular basis?

i ask because i'm debating if i should tweet or not. i actually have a twitter account set up but haven't used it yet. i pop onto others' twitter sites occasionally and read what they're up to.

i think the biggest pro to tweeting is growing my business. the more connections i make, the better. the biggest drawback to tweeting (for me) is the distraction it could provide. i get distracted. a lot. one night i said to my husband... i think i have add. his reply with no hesitation... oh, i KNOW you do. seriously, honey?? yes, i do have to make major efforts to stay on task during my work day. working alone at home does not help. one more social media site is not going to help this.

what do you think?? are you fond of twitter? addicted? or could you care less...

(the little birdie above came home with me on my last trip to maui. for some reason, every time i look at him i think, should i tweet?)

I am on Twitter, but I don't tweet. One main social media is enough (FB) for me. I like looking on Twitter occassionally and seeing what people have to say. It might be different if I had a business. I notice some bloggers do more tweeting than blogging these days . . .

Yep, I'm on Twitter (kiwiholly) and Tweet daily. I find that it's a good way of staying in touch with people very quickly and easily. :)

I love the little bird from Maui. :)

The birdie is adorable! I was on Tweeter but closed my account a while back. I didn't see it as productive.

As you know, I adore Twitter. BUT (and this is the key to all social media) you must limit the time you spend on it. I check at the beginning of the workday, lunch and at night when I'm relaxing. Limiting during the work day is key. Also, use something like HootSuite where you can schedule posts, see direct mentions, see when people mention you, etc. all on one page.
