In today’s society, social media is thriving. More specifically, Twitter is thriving.
Twitter allows us to connect with friends, family, organizations and personalities across the globe. It allows us to spread awareness, fundraise over the internet, it gives brands and companies a way to promote themselves internationally, and it gives us the ability to stay updated on virtually anything happening around the world.
Every single one of these elements is news.
According to today’s dictionary, the definition of “news” is “a report of a recent event”. By definition, this would include tweets updating you on events happening internationally, latest trends, and even what your BFF just ate for lunch. Twitter is also a brilliant way to let the world know about upcoming events such as fundraisers, parties, political events, clubs, community events, and even your family BBQ.
Twitter is the perfect outlet for social interaction. Being able to post pictures, videos, links, and text makes it possible for virtually anything to be shared. If you missed something, Twitter is there to make sure you really won’t miss anything. Clips of events covered by the media are sure to be found on Twitter. Interviews, game shows, celebrity news, you name it; you can find it on Twitter.
You can find an incredibly wide range of topics on Twitter. From the biggest news story current in the media to your neighbour’s cousin’s dog’s name, you know where to find it. Twitter is a place for sharing, commenting, and communicating. It is a way to stay updated on anything happening in the public eye. Don’t want to miss anything? Twitter is the place to be.
