Twitter reminded me last week that I’ve been on the platform for 13 years!
Even though I’ve seen Twitter change over the last decade, becoming less friendly and more confrontational, it’s still the social network I visit several times a day.
Over the years I’ve met so many incredible people on Twitter – some of whom have become friends in real life.
I’ve been invited to speak at conferences around the globe.
I’ve never been so strategically connected.
And all because of Twitter.
And yet I still meet people who tell me they just don’t get Twitter. They say it’s just a place to post what you ate for breakfast, or lunch, or.. well you get the picture.
But here’s the thing about Twitter that not everyone realizes, you build your own experience to suit your interests and needs.
Twitter is the frame, not the picture, what’s inside is largely up to you.
I can hardly remember back to the first tweet I sent, but I do remember that there were several stages in my evolution to becoming a Twitter devotee.
And it turns out most people who first join Twitter go through some, if not all, of these stages.
So here’s a fun infographic I created outlining the five most common stages of Twitter adoption.
I’d love to hear from you. Are you a Twitter user? Where do you fall on this adoption curve?
