Sometimes I find Twitter accounts that are just too awesome to not share. Here are a few of my faves:


What are the benefits of having Twitter?

I had a friend ask me, “What are the benefits of having Twitter?”

When I first joined Twitter in 2007, I had the idea that it was going to be like MySpace, and all my friends were going to be on it, and we were going to the promised land of the ideal “social network” where everyone was connected and no one would miss any parties and life was grand.

That didn't happen.

What did happen is I gave up on social media in the great “Quit Facebook Day” purge of 2010. Within a month or two, I didn't miss Facebook, but I really missed Twitter. Turns out, it actually held value to me, so I reinstated it.

Every user has their own reasons, but here are the benefits I get from having Twitter.

Back to the Future - In Tweets

This is cool. Someone is tweeting the Back to the Future movie in real time. I love that movie.
