An amazing thing happened around the world on February 12, 2009. People gathered in venues, grand and small, to partake in a fundraising effort, punctuated with the use of Twitter. Our local version got coverage in the mainstream press, and around the globe, other people have begun to see that Twitter is more than a spot for people to gather and gab; it’s actually a place for things like Twestival to take root and grow. If money can be raised to the tune of better than $250K, then what else can it be used for?
Not just another office water cooler or a place to update people on what I’m doing, I consider Twitter a place to: laugh, help, vent, share, learn, support, cry, validate, disagree, inform, advise, and stand in awe. That’s my short list and it grows daily. It’s not just for business, it’s not just for fun.
What uses do you see it providing? Share your purpose with Twitter.
