I asked one simple question of my followers on Twitter, and got 20 responses. Here are their answers.
JoeManna: The people I have conversations with.
acraKA: Relationship building
alliemiami: Making great business connections is simple I start a conversation with someone of interest & it takes off
joewaters: The strength of weak ties.
econwriter5: Useful exchange of info
dmeiselman: An easy way to connect with new people that share an interest. Twitter lets me start relationships I would not have otherwise.
cargillcreative: Learning from others and making new connections…those are two ways I’ve benefited from using Twitter.
JoeCascio: I get connected to smart, friendly, creative people. I make friends. I don’t have to listen to asshats. Does one need more?
Dawn_Migliore: Getting news before it breaks and great links on topics you’re interested in
LevelTen_Colin: Networking, hands down.
michaelflint: Reach and search.
jensjewellery: Publicity for my Etsy store.
abarcelos: Definitely for two-way valuable interaction, both personally and professionally.
fairminder: Meeting new friends, maintaining friendships and finding clients and colleagues to complete client projects, all on Twitter
rsomers: A radio-like stream of ideas in the background as I work
melwebster: Links to interesting stuff and a good laugh at all of the blatant self-promotion
Notice, not one person said to “find out what people are eating for lunch” (a big misperception of Twitter!).
What are your thoughts on this? Anything to add to the list?
