Twitter is my favorite social networking app because it is a great source for information and news, as well as communication and sharing. When I was abroad I also used Twitter every day, especially to send quick messages or tweets to people at home. I really enjoy that it is somewhat of a snapshot diary of one’s day. When I was abroad, I tweeted what I was doing, where I was traveling, what I did everyday, etc. I also shared my thoughts, feelings, and plans, so it was really nice to be able to do that and not necessarily expect a response from anyone at all. I love having Twitter to look back on and remember exactly what was going through my mind at a particular point in time.
I enjoy the brief and precise manner that posts must be shared on Twitter. It makes communication and sharing much more direct, and this was very helpful in times where I did not have time or enough material to write an entire blog. Instead, I would share a short idea or opinion. For me, Twitter has been helpful to both receive information and create/share my own content.
