Copyblogger has a good post on how Twitter can help develop your writing skills.
Twitter poses a great challenge: how to communicate something of value in 140 characters or less. Unfortunately there are a lot of twits out there who use it as a stream-of-consciousness sharing of their every thought. That’s also the problem I have with Facebook, by the way—too much sharing without thinking. Repeat after me: Not every thought I have is worth sharing.
Whether you’re promoting a business, a cause or just yourself, Twitter can be a powerful tool … but only if you’re offering content of value. Otherwise you’re just adding more noise to the cacophony.
