We’ve all had this experience: You’re watching your favorite show and screaming at the television, telling your favorite character what to do. You get frustrated because you’re telling her to do the right thing, but she’s doing the complete opposite. Someone else has to agree with you. No? Well, someone else must be talking about it.
Well, now you can find that person, or a group of people, on Twitter!
Twitter is a great way to follow and talk to or about your favorite TV stars, famous figures, movies, shows and sports. But at the end of the day, it’s a also great tool to use to voice your own opinion about things that matter to you. It keeps you connected from one end of the globe to the other.
You’ll have an audience. Twitter users include groups of people that share your interests, along with your family and friends. Of the growing 300 million Twitter users, 20 percent are 50+.
Through Twitter, you can connect with whomever you like. And if you are uncomfortable talking on Twitter, it can become your own personal feed of news and entertainment.
