On Using Twitter Effectively

Twitter is an dope platform if used well. Period.

I became really active on Twitter in July last year and to be honest, it changed my life and worldview and connected me to an amazing bunch of people.

My first real introduction to Silicon Valley happened through Twitter. Here I came across a bunch of people such as Sar Haribhakti, Aashay SanghviRichard Burton and many more!

I found some cool communities such as Ambitious Guide, The I.I, Indie Hackers and several more. Simply put, the majority of people I hangout with these days are the ones I met on Twitter.

That’s a story for some other day.

For now,I have compiled some links and examples for you to help you use Twitter effectively:-

8. Bill Gurley recommends Twitter in his famous speech “Running Down a Dream”

But, and for those of you who were here yesterday, I think there is a much more incredible resource, not an alternative, you should do this and Twitter. Twitter is the most amazing networking and learning network ever built. For someone that’s pursuing their dream job or chasing a group of mentors or peers it’s remarkable. In any given field 50% to 80% of the top experts in that field are in Twitter, and they’re sharing ideas, and you can connect to them and follow them in your personal feed. If you get lucky enough and say something they find interesting they might follow you. The reason this becomes super-interesting is that unlocks direct message. Now all of a sudden you can communicate directly electronically whenever you want with that individual, very, very powerful. If you’re not using Twitter you’re missing out. I don’t even own any shares anymore.[Source]
