When I heard about our assignment to create a twitter account, I have to admit that I was nervous at first. I have heard of the concept before because some of my friends had to create accounts for this classes last year so they explained how it worked to me. I honestly, did not think that people would be that interested in my life so I was actually nervous about no one wanting to follow me. Within the first day of creating my account; I already have five followers and the number increased each day after that.
I found the most difficult aspect of twitter was updating my status. I didn’t find it important to tell others (whom I don’t know) what my everyday life was like or what I found to be interesting because I usually do that with my friends. Although from the other end I found it be quite intriguing when reading other people’s status’ because it was very informative and helped me to open my eyes to new websites and kept me updated with the PR world.
I do have to admit that most of my tweets involved only my life but I did try to fit a couple of interesting facts that I learned from class here and there. By continuing my twitter account, I believe there will be many benefits for my future career. My dream job is to work with celebrities or even fashion event planning, therefore by keeping my twitter account I can follow celebrities tweets and learn about their lives so I am in thrown into the real world I can already be prepared for their high demands. Also by following public relation specialists, I can listen to some of their stories that they have and how they fixed situations when they did not go exactly as planned.
I am looking forward to continuing my experience with twitter and am glad that was a mandatory assignment for our class to do.
