Twitter, the famous micro-blogging site, is growing as the place to hold debates.
Some users enjoy Twitter. It’s highly popular amongst journalists. Twitter provides valuable resources for guiding professional journalists on their micro blogging journeys.
Established celebrities embrace Twitter. Serious statistics rack up on celeb sites like Twitter Counter. The numbers vary. The stories are strange. It’s real. And it’s happening.
Katy Perry attracts 78, 013, 052 followers. Perry, and others, follow few people. This shows they don’t need the reciprocation others use. People follow Perry without first being followed. This approach could be perceived as less dependent, showing confidence in an established audience.
Yet other famous Twitter users embrace reciprocal following. Barack Obama follows 639,100 users. This could be because it shows a personal connection with his voters. He portrays 2-way dialogue after the past eras of 1-way communicative broadcasting. Everyone has a different approach.
Other users have turned to resent Twitter. These attitudes are more about the way people are using an otherwise useful medium.
Lena Dunham said about Twitter, “I deleted Twitter because I’m trying to create a safer space for myself emotionally,” according to the UK Daily Telegraph.
Joss Whedon very understandably took space from Twitter, to get into the creative mindset he needed. The genius creator of Buffy gained contrasting attention during the release of The Avengers.
He expressed strong feelings about Twitter, when talking with Buzz Feed, “I just thought, Wait a minute, if I’m going to start writing again, I have to go to the quiet place…”
His experience of Twitter was more political than he desired, “I’ve said before, when you declare yourself politically, you destroy yourself artistically,”
It got better. Joss Whedon has always told it how it is. His creative casual use of the English language is brought out in his shows. This quote on Buzzfeed is one of his most candid comments, “I don’t really think I need to visit You Suck Land anymore.”
Twitter is a mix of mass audiences, targeted niches, delightful details, and crazy conversations. It’s the good, the bad, and everything in between. There are lots of approaches to Twitter. They often involve either embracing it, or treading carefully. It’s definitely a place for presence.
