Twitter Connecting the World one Tweet at a Time

This new era of the Internet has drastically changed the way we communicate with one another. Social media has made interacting and socializing with people on the opposite side of the globe a simple task. Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter have completely transformed not only the way we communicate, but have eliminated the geographical walls that once limited our communication with people across the globe.

Just under 8% of the world’s population uses Twitter. With that number expected to continue to grow, the ability to communicate with people all across the world will only become easier. If you look at the map, you can see a visual of the connections that Twitter users make with other users by retweeting each other. These connections between one another would not normally be made and with such ease without the help of sites like Twitter.

All one needs is an Internet connection and the whole world becomes available with just a few clicks. Businesses have learned to use this technology to their advantage and change the way they market. Twitter and other social media sites have opened the doors to a whole new world of marketing and advertising. Twitter is not just a medium for communication, but also a middle ground where communication and business marketing meet. The target audience for a company can grow significantly with a Twitter account or any social media site for that matter.

It is how a company engages and manages their account that makes a difference in how their business is perceived by the Twitter users. Just as Twitter allows people to communicate with others they normally wouldn’t have the chance to, businesses have the opportunity to now market to a much larger target audience.

Twitter can be seen as a instrument for connecting families when it is not geographically convenient, meeting and connecting with someone you would normally not have the chance to and a handy medium for a business to market and advertise on. Twitter and social media sites like it are creating and allowing a seemingly big world available from your laptop or smartphone. How do you think that Twitter and other social media sites have changed the way people communicate?
