I have a Twitter account, and played with it for a few weeks. Updated it on occasion, and just didn’t find it useful in my day to day life.

But I constantly hear what a useful social media platform it is. So, I’m perplexed.

What can Twitter do for me that simply updating my Facebook status can’t? How is it useful to me, in growing my business or expanding my contacts?

I think that I may not truly understand Twitter and how it functions. And if someone could help me out in the comments, I’d appreciate it.

If I understood it better, I’d use the service.
