It is no secret that I am a big fan of Twitter. I use it for a number of purposes but realize that everybody finds different ways to best use Twitter to fulfill their needs. That is the beauty of a social networking platform that is so simple in concept.
Penn Olson, a site dedicated to social media and designed to introduce internet users to the different mediums available, has 14 ways people are using Twitter, but here is my favorite one.
14. Curb drunk driving
If nothing so far managed to stop those drivers from drunk driving, maybe shame could finally do the trick. The names of those charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) between Christmas and New Year’s Eve would be published on Twitter. Don’t think your neighbors don’t know what you did last night!
What ways are you using Twitter?
