Recent studies show only 13% of all internet users actually use Twitter. I thought this was completely ridiculous & wanted to express the various intriguing Twitter uses that are available to you. Most of these Twitter uses people have probably never even heard of; even if they use Twitter.
Have you ever been sitting on Twitter trying to find out if a movie is worth seeing or not? Well now you can multitask. Once you’ve decided whether or not you want to see the movie you can now find out what type of traffic there is from your house to the movie theater using CommuterFeed. Even Google has started to implement similar options in their directions search.
Twitter now offers a number of options to allow you to create “to do lists” to remind you of all those pesky tasks you may forget about over the course of a day, week, month or even year. If you use Twitter now you don’t have an excuse to be forgetful & you can make it fun too!
You can even make polls on Twitter. This is awesome for all different uses in itself. If you’re a teacher you can ask homework questions in a poll fashion on Twitter. If your Twitter account represents a business you can ask for customer feedback via these means. Or you can even use the polls to find out where your friends want to have lunch.
You can now find interactive ways through Twitter to be sent reminders about anything you’d like. One of these options is by simply following & tweeting to @timer about a reminder you may need. We all have busy schedules so this is of great importance since we don’t want to be charged for those doctor’s appointments we miss due to being forgetful.
We’ve all been there when we’re waiting for a package that was supposed to arrive at a certain time, but doesn’t. Now we have the same option as above; simply follow & tweet @trackthis with the tracking number of whatever item you’re waiting for & you will be sent a direct message any time your item happens to move from station to station.
Please bear in mind these are simply a few Twitter uses that we found intriguing & wanted to share with you. There are far too many Twitter uses to mention; especially since what one does another might not.
