7. Share Great Information:
Whether it’s the latest trend, newest technology release, a great book, an inspiring Seth Godin article, a Mashable find, the latest fashion trends, questions about a product, a great place to dine in a particular city or the recent release of the College Football BCS results, Twitter is definitely one of the best places to gather and share information.
8. Share a Cause:
On a daily basis I’m either reading or sharing information about a great cause or charity.
Twitter makes it simple for us to be helpful to those who are trying to reach a fundraising goal, get information out about a great cause or share information about a movement.

I am a huge believer in genuine face-to-face relationships; however, I have embraced the tremendous value of Twitter and social media relationships.
Social media relationships are making the world smaller and smaller. This big ol’ world is getting smaller and smaller, one tweet, comment and post at a time.
It’s always important to remember the social part of the phrase “social media.” Social is defined as — The inclination to seek out or enjoy the company of others; sociable. Twitter is a great place to share your life and connect with the lives of others.
