What is Twitter?

Twitter is a micro blogging phenomenon and social network that allows users to tweet their followers with brief messages of just 140 characters or less. I consider it in a sense an instant messaging platform on steroids. While Twitter has numerous applications for many businesses and enterprises I’ve yet to honestly see it generate results for two of my accounts or niches. One account has been active since August 2008 and the other January 2009. What have I gotten primarily from these two twitter accounts? Twitter SPAM.

With that being said, There are Twitter users that have seen a huge impact from using Twitter. Doctors, dentists, teachers, trainers, and the list goes on. But does that mean Twitter is right for every business? Some Internet marketers are starting to question the validity of Twitter as a primary business tool. Why? It takes time commitment and persistence just like anything else. When you start to analyze the time and commitment it takes to use Twitter successfully, there may be other marketing tools that will give specific businesses a better ROI.

So, What is Twitter? A powerful communication tool that can help you gain new customers or prospects. A customer service tool, or whatever you can conjur with your imagination with respect to communicating instantly with those in Twitter land.

Since I’m an Internet marketer, I’ve got a Twitter account for nearly all of the niche markets I’m working or developing. I’ll continue to share results good or bad as they develop. Here’s some good news. I got my son started with a new niche just 4 days ago, and with just a couple of tweets got two companies that stepped up to offer us all the help we needed along with products, video, etc. The right niche can generate some immediate responseses that can be lucrative.
