Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Use Twitter

Both twitter and facebook have proven their worth, but I was a  twitter user long before I was a facebook user.  As such, it took me some time to get used to facebook.  Now that I've used both for some time I've come to realize the benefit of each. I have noticed that the inverse is true for facebook users that decide to try out twitter - twitter has an akward feel to them. I decided to write this short post on the top five reasons why anyone would find it useful.  Hopefully this will be usefull for those of you that have become accustomed to facebook and are thinking about giving twitter a try.

1. All information is public.  I know, I know facebook friends; you want to protect your privacy. In twitter there is no such thing as privacy settings.  Anything you tweet is automatically accessible to the twitter universe (Everything except for direct private messages).  Why this is a good thing is because other users and applications can quickly find you and your topics.
