My Twitter journey

01 Jul

Our life comprises of people who are always there to guide us. When we are born our parents teach us how to walk when we fall they are there to give us support.  Just like when I started using Twitter I was pretty much confused how to use this social media tool. I mean how we can express ourselves in just 140chrs. But there I followed few people who are still with me and they guided me on every step.

My mentors

Starting off with @FarrukhSiddiqui , @Catalyst303 , @sarina_singh , @bethebutterfly , @Join_PK , @SocializedWeb and @IamPramit these friends were there when I started using Twitter and I still value each of them as my teacher and close friend. Thank you friends you are simply wonderful human being and best of all you’re all very caring.

King of the ring

So I started exploring Twitter more and more and I came across some people who’s every Tweet is unique and worth re-tweeting. They Tweet on everything from quotes, news, humor you just can’t stop counting  @imadnaffa @2cre8 , @SteveAkinsSEO , @imrananwar , @MAK009X , @2morrowknight , @TrendyDC , @pramitjnathan , @agangulyy , @TrendTracker , @Flipbooks , @kim , @mashable, @rocksstar10

Unique Twipils

Every human is unique in his/her own way but some people are so unique that they are even noticed from a distance. Just like @Nonglin (try this give her RT and you’ll get a sweet voice thanks… haha… cool way to say thanks). As a cricket fan I was watching the T20 world online when I came across @areeeba. She was tweeting about cricket. Comment on every ball and every comment were better than the previous one. I enjoyed her Tweets more than the game. Then there was this blogger from Pakistan  @rai_azlan by the way you can check his blog, he’s truly inspiring. What attracted my attention is his unique hashtag #Azlankitheory (simply means thoughts from him) and finally there is @Ammar_Haider he starts his day by #AAJKASAWAL (a question which he post’s on Facebook and people responds pretty well) he’s also another intellectual blogger from Pakistan.

Lively Twipils

Well in reality also there are some friends whom you look up to when you’re feeling down same as in Twitter I look up to these lively friends. They are so very active, loving life, loving people around them. You’ll surely be energized when you’ll see them in your streamline @SuuperG @Peri37 @AriaaJaeger @BIGstLittleCity @aileen2u2 @awakeningaimee @msespina @Marcome @MelodyLeaLamb @thesmilingpie.

My real mentor

There came a time when I was pretty much fed up from Twitter. Lost my interest and was just on my way to quit. I tweeted my last and then I logged in after two days to de-activate my account and what I saw was pretty unexpected and an honor for me.  I received a message from @faisalqureshi he said “Are you ok, haven’t seem you from past few days”. Well you can guess my emotions for that. The man I started following from my start just considered me something. jazaakAllah bro for your follow up, it’s because of you I am still using Twitter. Faisal Qureshi is a highly interactive media celebrity of Pakistan. He’s one of the best anchors and above all he’s very loving and caring human being.

Friends from Pakistan

There are some friends who are there for you to share your feelings with. They understand you, they guide you, they laugh with you and they even support you. These friends are from Pakistan which are very dear to me. @drawab @Salmajafri @RababKhan @abidifactor@wqs @Islam_forEver @calyps @emwhytee @smohkim @thekarachikid @RumaisaM @beenishqureshi @ANAS_85 @khanakramm @Mohsin_Meer @altruistic92 @sanasaleem @amrinjaan @nlikeb @ali360

International friends

This is also a special group of friends whom I admire from bottom of my heart. Truly using Twitter for the flow of love with their utterly fantastic tweets @loudthoughts @flemcy @Rasheedkk @ashwinsanghi @livetorque @anji99u33 @gagan_3 @liagreenery @Nurul54 @NidalM

Technology geeks

This is an active group which always tweets about what’s in what’s out in the world of technology. From tips, tutorials to do it yourself, they tweet them all @Jankovitch @arkarthick @dymissy @Tukaiz @sciencenews1 @BrkingWebDesign @psdtuts @dollars5 @creativenerds @TweetSmarter @GraphicAlerts @AskAaronLee @BloggingTipsCom

Inspiring quotes

This group deals with friends who tweet quotes which are worth reading, inspiring and motivating   @WisdomBismillah @PerfectQuran @DrJeffersnBoggs @WomenOfHistory @Xanadutrue @PeaceAndWisdom @SecretDiary @DrMiaRose @MuslimCharacter @Inspire_Us @DavidRoads @Chimi3 @iwisenet @iconic88

Some bloggers from Pakistan

@teabreakdotpk @pakblogging @PAKISTANIAT @ProPakistaniPK @pakpoint @PakResource @pkEducation @MyLandPakistan

News bots

@247express @the_nation @Reuters_TopNews @Dawn_News @etribune @Karachi


Well this is all what I have for now. After using Twitter this much I finally realized that Twitter which is derived from the word “Tweet” meaning news should be used in a professional way. It can be used for marketing, a great way to interact with your customers. It can be used as an interactive LIVE tool to convey and gather news from around the world. Twitter is a social networking tool so please use it for some good and try not to misuse it.

By the way thanks / jazaakAllah for all my followers. I respect each and everyone one of you from bottom of my heart.
