Why to follow any one in Twitter?

      Now a days if I visit any website, there is a button saying "Follow us in twitter". I had a question "Why I should follow them in twitter?" Like some of my friends, I too felt its waste of time following any one or any product in twitter.

      I had an another question,"Am I against twitter?". I am not against twitter or any one following twitter.Then why should I think,using of twitter is waste of time?

      I decided to follow few products which I am interested and related to my daily life in Twitter.My daily life is dependent on "Microsoft Windows", a single product which I am using most of the time in my daily life.

      I started following Microsoft,Windows and Bill gates. With in a minute I got lot of updates from them. Latest updates I came to know from Microsoft twitter pages are "Microsoft suggesting to stop using Internet Explorer 6", "IE 9 Set to release" which are useful information for me.

      As per my understanding goes, If we start using twitter effectively by following what is related to us, "Twitter is a single place where we get plenty of information about what we like and what we need".

  You can follow me in twitter here.

     I have selected 2nd suggested option. It suggested me 3 routes to reach the place, and I have option to choose whether I want to go by my own vehicle or public Transport. I have chosen "Car image" which means by my own vehicle.

Driving Directions:
     I decided to use the 2nd suggested route via Kanakapura road. But Still I don’t know the route clearly. 

     Google maps told me that, don’t worry; I am here to help you.Yes I selected my route and scrolled down, Wow, now I came to know how smart Google maps is. I got step by step Driving directions to Bull temple from my house. I and my friend traveled to Bull temple from our house through the way suggested by Google maps last week by bike.
     One of our colleagues asked us how to reach Bull temple from JP Nagar by bus. I suggested Google maps to him. Yes he can choose public medium ("Bus Symbol") and then get the route. Google maps suggested him complete details of from which bus stop you should take bus, and how to reach next bust stop by walk and available bus details etc.,


     He told "Google maps is a Genius". I feel it’s a smart guide if we use effectively.
