How Twitter is Making the World A Better Place
Leading New York Internet marketing and SEO firm says that Twitter is changing the way we live, for the better.
Web 2.0 is a general term that refers to a wide-range of web-based applications designed to allow Internets users to send their message out to the masses, says Peter Crisafi, Vice President of dzine it, Inc., a well-known New York search engine optimization (SEO) and Internet marketing firm that specializes in social networking as a way to boost traffic for small businesses. In 2009, there was one particular web application that has taken the Internet by storm and is utilized by both the public and private sectors and, of course, has garnered the attention of Internet marketers.
Twitter, is the Web 2.0 application that Crisafi is referring to and he notes that Twitter is not only being used by the general public to communicate, but by just about any organization or agency that has a message they want to share.
In many ways, Twitter is being used by government agencies to inform the public in ways we never thought possible, says Crisafi. For example, many government agencies use Twitter to send public safety announcements and emergency notifications out to the general public.
The Washington State Department of Transportation, Crisafi notes, uses Twitter to alert drivers of traffic conditions.
What was designed as a platform for people to connect on a social level via the Internet, has become a useful tool for government agencies, media outlets, celebrities, and, of course, small business owners, say Crisafi, who notes that if government agencies are using Twitter to get their messages out to the general public, it stands to reason that small business owners should be using it too. If a small business is not using Web 2.0 tools such as Twitter and Facebook to increase traffic to their website, they are going to be left out in the cold.
