Twitter: Garbage in, garbage out
Twitter. Some think it’s a complete waste of time, and others think it’s a godsend. Guess what: it’s neither. Like many other things, Twitter is completely what you make of it.
Follow only celebrities? That’s the equivalent of watching nothing but reality TV. Similarly, if you follow only idiots who “tweet what they had for lunch” (the common definition of the service by haters), what do you expect to get out of it? Garbage in, garbage out.
But the reverse is true: if you follow and interact with experts in your field, or solid motivators, or inspirers, you’ll grow. You’ll be shaped by their experiences and wisdom.
Surround yourself with positive influencers, in person or on social media, and you’ll likely become one yourself.
