Here’s the thing- Twitter has not yet become an active part of my day. I always forget to check it or even get on the website. Once I do get on my status usually states something along the lines of, (its only 11:00 a.m. and I need another cup of coffee). This of course is not going to provoke many replies from other twittering buddies.
In effort of trying another 48 hours of Twitter, I put more thought into my updates. For instance, this go around, unlike my first experience, I wrote statuses that would naturally ask for a reply. One of my updates I posted was about technology and how mind blowing the advances are with a really fascinating video attached. I got zero responses. I have not recieved much feedback and will probably just use twitter every now and then to follow well-known people I like, and read what kind of things they are doing. It surprises me that so many famous people in entertainment are now using twitter. I would not have expected this.
Overall, I would like to be able to use twitter without confusion. 🙂 I keep having problems sending messages to other people on Twitter. This is my only problem that I have dealt with on the website though.
After following some PR professionals on Twitter these are some of my recommended favorites:
- Lacie Smith- she graduated from GSU, and is now working for the American Cancer Society in Athens, Ga. I like to follow her on Twitter for her updates on events and facts that help fight cancer. http://twitter.com/lacie_d_
- Urkovia Andrews- a PR professor at our college. I have started following her to see if she has any interesting updates on her classes, because more than likely I will have her in the future. http://twitter.com/uandrews
- Mackenzie Whalen- PR Coordinator for Georgia Aquarium. I knew her when she went to school here at GSU, and look to her Twitter page for intersting PR facts or updates on public relations with her company. http://twitter.com/mackenziewhalen

The word “Twitter”, sounds pretty silly for a website that tons and tons of adults of all ages are using. When I first made my account for Twitter, I was very hesitant. Not only, had I never heard of it, but I was not sure if I wanted to get involved in another “facebook.” The only reason I felt this way was because I am currently a facebook user and spend/waste much of my time on this site. I truly love the internet, and have found it to be a wonderful way to research, get information, and have fun, but in my case it is a huge contribution to my procrastination problem! 🙂 Twitter, although I may hate to admit it, has been something I will check up on a couple of times a day now.
I have had fun changing my background, and configuring the details for my profile. I am no expert by any means but I’m sure with time I will improve. The most shocking surprise was finding Britney Spears on Twitter, this absolutely made me laugh. I’m sure its not really her, but interesting to find that someone would make her a profile. I also happened to stumble across one of my favorite TV cooks tonight. You’re asking who? Paula Deen of course! I figured if she was on Twitter it might be worth the status checks. I have logged on and found out facts and current events that are taking place that I would have never known otherwise. Twitter is a great communication tool, and for now I’ll keep twittering.
