Do You Think the Twitter Effect is Fading
« on: October 14, 2015, 07:59:56 PM »
My college instructor in my media class says that Twitter is going by the wayside and people are using it less.  To date, she hasn't presented any stats or expert opinions to back this up.

Do you still use Twitter as part of your marketing or promotion strategy.

I'm actually one of the (seemingly few!) people that never really got into Twitter. I know plenty of people that still use it - my husband uses it for work, for instance. But I was just never really into it - there were other forms of social media that I much preferred.

I would say these days for business advertising I see much more stuff on Instagram now. Giveaways, business promotions, hashtags all over the place - it seems to be the new thing for marketing your business.

I do not have a Twitter account but I think some people are still using it especially the young people. That is why I don;t think that Twitter is already fading.

I think Twitter is still strong because unlike Facebook you can follow anyone and contact them, also advertising is free still, where Facebook can charge.

The only thing about Twitter is that it is in real time, so you have to tweet at the right time of day. Facebook accounts are much harder to set up these days, so Twitter is a good alternative.

I do have a Twitter account, but I don't use it for advertising/promoting purposes. I just utilize it for personal reasons. Anyway, I don't think Twitter will go down in flames soon. It's one of the best and most popular social networking sites right now. And I know a lot of business owners who take advantage of Twitter's usefulness.

I do have a Twitter account, but I have not physically been on Twitter in a long while. My Facebook account is linked to Twitter though, so my posts still go out. I used to be completely addicted to Twitter, but somewhere a long the way, I just stopped using it so much. I can see its usefulness, but I don't think there are a lot of people still on Twitter exclusively.

It would just be my luck, wouldn't it LOL?! I too never got into Twitter at all. I just didn't find it appealing, until I started working online. I then set up an account with a view to promoting my articles on there a few months ago, only for my writing sites to fold one after the other. So my Twitter account has been lying dormant since, and i wasn't even active on it before that. Now that I want to start writing, i was thinking of reviving it so as promote my stuff on there.

I think it largely depends in which occupation or niche you're in. I do some game development and Twitter is massive among developers and gamers alike. In fact, it's used far more than any other social media platform within this field, even Facebook. Perhaps, folks with other interests may be using Twitter less as they are more engaged in another platform such as Pinterest or Instagram.

I have a Twitter account and was actively using it last year, but not so much this year. I think Twitter is going slower than before, but it will take a long time to quiet it down, like Digg and StumbleUpon.

I don't care much for Twitter but its good in the same that you don't get constant game invites and group invites like on Facebook. I have over 350 followers now on my work at home twitter linked to my blog. I try and post updates but do forget. To me it looks like people still use it frequent but then again seeing stats would be cool.

Twitter is still huge, but has changed over the years, just as every platform does. It's still hugely popular for politics, sales, and tech areas. Many handmade artisans and artists use it, as well as writers and photographers. I agree with @Alex that time of day can matter with regard to some posts, but if I'm interested enough, I will go read a person's Twitter stream, and tweets can be automated, which is what I've done on a few of my accounts. I also live tweet and share others' listings/tweets, so the accounts look organic, rather than stale.

It is a pretty helpful tool. You can get an instant scoop about anything of interest to you without paying any subscription. You can hear about the buzz nationwide and world wide. I am using it for the purpose I mentioned

I honestly have no idea, but I've heard a few people saying they've slowed down using Twitter. I appreciate it's probably not indicative of the wider trend, but I haven't heard anyone getting excited over Twitter lately. Although I did set up an account, I have yet to use it because the reason I set it up was too promote my writing articles. However, that hasn't panned out quite how I saw it in my head, so I'm not sure if I'll ever really get into it.

I used twitter for a few weeks a couples years ago then stopped.  I feel there is so much social media out there its hard to keep up with all of it.  Twitter is a great places to find out the latest news but I feel like within a few minutes news updates are both on Instagram and Facebook, let alone any news apps you have on your phone.

The continuous reminder that Twitter sends to all users about the big potential behind advertising on the site is the proof that the its effect is fading out.

Twitter was an effective social networking site and had much more potential than Facebook to advertise, but problem with Twitter was the fact of wanting to be much the was FB is adding video and image sharing capabilities, that along with the layout change to resemble Facebook and the inconsistent display of recent updates is making people stop using it.

Personally I was a Twitter-oriented person, but today I found pretty hard find what an ongoing conversation is about because the main comment of an account holder is hiding when he or she receives replies, which are privileged and sometimes come in bigger fonts than other posts.

Twitter looks simply terrible today, but Facebook is neither a better alternative, also having people moving away.
