Why Twitter?

@JohncMayer: That cat from the “hang in there” poster just died. Makes a man just wanna give up.

Twitter’s worth taking a look at just to hear what John Mayer has to say, yes it’s really him and he’s one of the funniest on Twitter (the “tweet” above is my personal favorite).

Twitter, the overnight sensation is quickly becoming the most popular social media platform out there.  I am sure many people still see it as a waste of time, and it can be, but it can also be a very useful tool.  Twitter is the fastest method of transportation for information.  Every “twitterer” wants to be the best and the best, tweet the most interesting, helpful stories or links the fastest.  So the most popular people on Twitter are the people with the best tweets, you get the picture?

To get you started on Twitter I have compiled a list of the people you should follow.  These are the people I interact with most often.  Set up an account and start following this list, it’ll sure bring some amusement to your day, also don’t forget to follow @FraserStrategy ;)

  1. First of all, I would like to thank Jesus. (points to heaven with tears in eyes…) THANK YOU JESUS! I would also like to thank my agent, my publicist, my stylist, my lawyer, my adopted black baby, Roy Orbison’s Greatest Hits and last but not least, the incomparable JEPH (with a PH, get it right) MAYSTRUCK. (tears, one hand over heart, other hand clutching award, tilted head) Because without him (dramatic pause) no one would know who the hell I am on Twitter. And because of this? I know that I *am* someone on Twitter! Thank you so much! And God Bless!
