"Twitter doesn't make sense. What is the point? It seems like a big waste of time and energy."
We spend so much time trying to explain the importance of social media to our friends. We highlight how things are changing in the world, give some examples of people we have met through Twitter, and try to get them excited, like we are, for the possibilities that are out there. But they still just don't get it.
Perspective is everything. Without looking at social media from the right point of view, it is nonsense. Sometimes for people to understand and gain the right point of view, they don't need more examples or facts, they just need more time to walk further down the road.
