    I use Twitter to get quick update news on what my friends are up to. Additionally, I use it to get news on thinks that are happening in the world around me. Furthermore, I use Twitter to engage with other businesses and get coupons and deals that are happening in restaurants and businesses that I follow. I personally use twitter to send updates on what I am doing currently and spread news articles that I find rather appealing. I definitely learn new information when I am on Twitter which is why I think it is such a great idea. Twitter allows buzz news to be spread rapidly and allows me to engage with companies that I would not ordinarily do. It is different from Facebook because everything is in 140 characters or less so I get the point very fast.

    I use Twitter for the most part to get updates from my friends. I follow very very news sources or accounts that would tweet about news information and such. That being said, I use the site as a purely social networking site but if there was some kind of big event happening, I would go check out some of the news Twitters and I have a lot of friends who would retweet the information. So even because I do not directly follow those accounts, I still get the information. My tweets are about personal information such as status updates and such instead of spreading information about world news.
