You Tweet!MoreSeptember 7, 2010 | Oluwapelumi September 7, 2010 OluwapelumiMore By Ifreke InyangTwitter was the topic for the last show of Y! TV (Rubbin’ Minds): the guests wereentertainment and media professionals who know how how to use Twitter well. Therewas Nigezie’s Andre Blaze, who is @AndreBlaze on twitter, Hip Hop artiste Kel Ohia(@kelonline, Marketing expert Deyi Ayowole, with the handle @bold_ent and rapper,Afolabi ‘beazy’ Durotoye who tweets with @yoitsbeazy. As one of the presenters, it wasprobably the first time on Nigerian television that guests were allowed to bring theirmobile phones on set and actually use them – tweeting!The presenters: Chude Jideonwo (@Chude) and Phoenix Osinuga (@phoenixosinuga).For those who were expecting to be educated on what twitter is, the guests impatientlybrushed past that. Deji was quick to say that people don’t give a true reflection of theirreality on twitter and that wasn’t really debated.Responding to the presenters’ question about being unable to build real friendshipsAndre’s opinion, twitter can not be underestimated as children have been born offrelationships that started on twitter! And the reason is because, in his words, twitteris like Big Brother without cameras. One thing twitter is primarily noted for is therandomness of tweets. Like one of the guests said, Twitter is Big Brother without thecameras.With witty repartees (Andre Blaze to views: Don’t follow @Ebuka on Twitter! AndreBlaze to Deji: Deji is like the tele-marketer no one wants to pick up the phone for! Kelto Andre Blaze: You don’t show your sadness on Twitter? Ha! Beazy to Chude: The onlyreason people picked up their phones when people called to beg for money in thosedays was because there was no Caller ID! ) stringing the show along, the guests wereable to give some tips.1. Many of us may live to regret the things we say on Twitter now, becauseno one has ever done this before and so no one knows how this will go.2. Nothing is really secret on Twitter because even if your Tweet is protected,someone can Retweet!3. “When you want to use Twitter for business, open an account strictlyfor business. Don’t mix your personal randomness with business.”4. Some things aren’t meant for Twitter, darling: go get a diary!But no matter the argument, Beazy mounted the last stand for the Twitteraddicts: “twitter is the future!”We’ll see about that.Oluwapelumi Comments (3) Dominick BrazleThis informal article helped me a lot!
