Twitter for @boaters
The world of social media is hard to escape, and as many of us are starting to give into the pressures of Facebook, we find our lives surrounded by the @ and # of Twitter. The most common things that I hear are: “I don’t understand Twitter”, “Twitter is for kids”, and “Only old people use Facebook”. Well, I’m no kid (but won’t admit I’m old either) and today I celebrate my 3rd #twitterversary. The first two years were mostly about having an account only for the purpose of appearing as if I had embraced the social revolution. Yet the reality was, I had no idea why anyone would want to use it. Then, last year, I decided I would work at it to see what all the hype was about. And now, over the last few months, it has become a part of my daily routine. The biggest advantage I have found is the ability to interact with the marine industry in a way that was impossible before. I can create a tweet and add the @twittername and they will see my comments and ideas. For me, I am into boating, as well as the Florida life-style, and since you’re reading this, you probably are too. So I thought I would give you a jump-start of who to follow if you’re a boater and love the water.
