There are a ton of reasons why I love twitter that I wont mention in this post. There are other reasons that make it nice but, 2 reasons I come back every day. The people, and the companies twitters.
I have always loved making connections with people online. I met a ton of people from playing World of Warcraft and actually got to go out and meet some of them. And I still see/talk to most of those people that I met. Its the same thing with Twitter. I feel like I know some of these people as I converse with them almost every day. There are still a lot of people on Twitter that I want to meet.
The second reason is companies being on Twitter. This ranges from contest giving away things to them just being responsive. Lets first go through the things I’ve won through twitter contest.
