Well at first glance, one always gets overwhelmed with Twitter. However, one needs to understand that Twitter was not created to overwhelm its users with information but was created to connect with them faster. Below I have documented the way I use Twitter. I want to help you break down Twitter by its features and may be, also help you figure out how you can use a particular feature in different ways. When you are learning Twitter, think about how you can leverage it for your own learning.
Twitter as a network is very different from Facebook since you have access to public posts from around the world. You can connect with people talking something similar to what you want to talk about through Twitter Advanced Search or find people sharing the same interest as you do via Followerwonk.com. Whatever might be your quest, think about Twitter as a platform that can help you ‘find people’ who can help you achieve what you desire.
