What's Next for Twitter?

People send 95 million tweets on Twitter every day. This CBS News video reports that Twitter is going to partner with several news networks and build a "Twitter News Network,” which will probably take Twitter to another level --- an “information center” of every updates one wants to know.

I have signed up for a Twitter account (@LinchiKwok) for almost a year. I also talked about the influence of Twitter on my blog many times (e.g. The Power of Twitter Complaints; Twitter: An Effective Way to Communicate between Restaurants and Customers; my personal experience with Twitter!Places). However, I have to admit that I have not discovered the full potential of Twitter.

Up until last week when a student in my class (@acgott) showed me his enthusiasm about Twitter and how he used Twitter to engage with others, my interest of conducting a research study on Twitter was greatly increased. What is your personal experience with Twitter? How does Twitter help you achieve your business and/or your personal goals?

  1. Twitter is a very neat thing that is quickly spreading. Unfortunately most people do not think of it that special. If you ask the common person that has not truly experienced twitter they would consider it no different than a list of everyone’s Facebook updates. Twitter is more than that. It is a way you can receive news from all different aspects of the world. You can receive news from CNN, sports updates from ESPN and even updates from famous celebrities such as Al Gore and Ivanka Trump. It is a great way to get plenty of information on one source rather than just going to each individual website to try and get that information.

  2. On a daily basis, I find that I am receiving news first from Twitter. I can constantly see what my friends are doing, as well as what is going on in our country at the time. NY Times and USA Today both have Twitter accounts along with many talk show hosts and ESPN. It is interesting to see what your favorite actors and athletes are doing on a daily basis. I have a Twitter application on my phone, so it is by far the most convenient way to receive my news on the go. Many businesses are starting to create Twitter accounts because they are coming to realize that Twitter is a great resource to reach the consumer quickly.

In the unparalleled world of COVID-19, individuals are flooded with choices: whether it be what to eat or what church service to watch.

Do you know where your prospects hang out during the #DeleteFacebook movement?

Facebook used to the cool place where everybody hangs out. Not long ago, Facebook was ranked the most visited website in the world , and the website where Americans spent the most time. Facebook page then became the most popular social media platform for business-to-consumer communications among various types of organizations. In recent years, however, Facebook faced several backlashes toward the platform’s data privacy practices and its CEO. Facebook is experiencing some challenges of maintaining its popularity among internet users, some of whom even call for a #DeleteFacebook movement . I myself, also notice a shift in my teenaged students’ interest in Facebook, even before the #DeleteFacebook backlash. So, if Facebook is no longer the cool place where everybody hangs out, which social media platforms can we use to communicate with our prospective consumers?
