Since the launch of Twitter back in July of 2006, it has grown to having over 200 million users! On an average day there are over 75 million tweets that are posted to the site. With this awesome success of the internet site, believe it or not, there are many who still have strong resentment for the mini blog page.
Twitter is very similar to Facebook where you post what you are doing. Although there similar characteristics, most find that Twitter is not as user friendly. Part of the blame is that with Twitter you only have a 140 character limit to provide as much information as you can. This may be why people are dissatisfied because they feel limited. Other arguments are that individuals have nothing creative to contribute to the site which can also cause frustration.
Having people follow you on Twitter can be challenging to users in the beginning. With Facebook, you can request to be friends with someone by searching their name and clicking a button. Or if you are friends with someone, you can easily see who they know and request friends from their list. Twitter on the other hand, it is not as easy as that! You have to know the name or Twitter I.D. of the person you are looking for. You won’t be able to see who others are following which cause the site to be non interesting for newbies.
If you are having trouble getting others follow you on Twitter, you can always ask friends and family if they have an account. If they do, get their Twitter information to start following them and ask them to do the same for you. Another hint is to tweet as much as you can! It may seem like you are putting things out there in thin air, but the more you tweet, others will find you because your page will eventually be featured as â€œsomeone you should follow.
