In last weeks On The Media, I found the segment regarding Twitter and its relevance to social connection to be extremely interesting. In the past decade, social media has been a very influential medium that has impact individuals, society, and cultures around the world. Aside from Facebook, Twitter has become the frontrunner of this social media revolution. Twitter is the fastest and most convenient way for individuals and communities to connect, while creating networks within networks, all of which engage in personal, local, and worldly events and news. This being said, it is evident that social media, most specifically Twitter, has the power to promote interaction and communication on levels that were never imaginable. It’s instantaneous transmission of statuses, statements, proclamations, accusations, opinions, the list goes on….has enabled Internet users to take full advantage of technology, and the abilities that it allows. Although I have been a user of Twitter for a few years now, it has come to my realization that over the past year Twitter has become the most useful, impactful, and engaging platform in all of social media. All the significant events that have occurred in the past months in the United States, and around the world, have been broadcasted not only on network news, but through citizens’ interaction through Twitter. I find the power and relevance of this particular platform to be fascinating….What about you?
