Why some people use twitter!

When I asked this question on Twitter, "Hi Tweeps, I'm doing some #research on why people use #twitter. Pls reply me w/ your reasons, I'm promoting twitter and blogging your reply!"

The following are the answers:

@Boy_Kill_Boy if i didn't i'd blow my brains out with bordom

@amandaxr I do that to interact with friends, where the messages are more casual and shorter than typical blog posts. #twitter

@susanhutchinson To connect w/people, make friends, uplift people along life's way. That's what I'm here for. :)

@kopigao I'm not too sure why I tweet, but it seems obvious why you tweet. :D

@EmNiew an easy and efficient way to get research sources and gather information #twitter#research

@kulturbrille It gives us an excuse not to blog.

@WillyLim I used social media for generating leads and demand for businesses.

Basically, you can do any form of research if you are online, and if you have enough followers and you can get answers relatively quickly!

Twitter is pretty viral and awesome, and it is definitely changing the way people communicate.

From the above, you can see that different people use twitter for different reasons and many are getting what they want.

So... why do you tweet?
