Twitter can be a great tool for sharing and promoting information and events, but it can be used a whole lot more. Lions are like many other twitter users tend just to use twitter as a broadcast medium not a tool to seek information.
We should be using twitter professionally not like celebrities telling us what they had for lunch or what they are doing now. But to publish news but also gain an incite into what our audience is wanting to learn from us. We have this tool that has changed the way we gather and send information all around the word in an instant. We should look at twitter as the ticker you see going across the bottom tv screen as you watching the news or the poster outside the newsstand with the headline of the day leading story trying to get us to buy the main paper. But it can also be us asking a question or a to call action.
Next time you use twitter ask a question or direct your followers to a poll you have set up on Facebook. Use it as a two way street as the start of a conversation to gain knowledge. Don’t just send a message, engage with your audience but remember it is a two way street if you ask them to reply then you should reply even if it is to say thanks for the comment.
