So I don’t necessarily like Twitter as I find it kind of annoying to use. I would say I have a love/hate relationship with Twitter. The reason for that is because I wouldn’t consider myself someone who needs to update the “social media world” constantly about what’s happening.. but a few years ago I was the complete opposite. Back in high school I used Twitter too much to keep my followers up to date and I cringe thinking about how much I used to use it. The whole service seems flooded with dumb things! It’s all spam bots either showing a product or a “service” and the infamous egg accounts we learned about in class.
Do I have a Twitter currently? Yes I do. (And it’s out of my free will, not because of class!) What do I use it for? To simply read the news or to stay updated about certain topics. I consider Twitter to be another version of Usenet (even though it’s really Reddit) because you can easily put yourself in a specific environment within Twitter.
To be more specific, I only use the Twitter application on my iPhone. If I know there’s something happening like an award ceremony or something else I would use the Explore tab since they have a feature that compiles it all onto one. If not that, I’m strictly using it read about a particular clothing company (Adidas!). I get constant notifications on my phone regarding tweets from accounts that tie in with Adidas. I have a huge interest in their shoes and what collaborations they have.
So a friendly warning, you may see tweets regarding a specific shoe. Don’t mind that haha.
