In an “Ask Tina” video on NBC.com, 2013 Golden Globe co-host and comedian, Tina Fey, argues that most Twitter users are boring and we are “wasting the internets,” she said.
“I think you should have to get a license to use Twitter because most people are so f***** boring that they should shut up,” Fey said.
In the video, Fey explains that she doesn’t use Twitter and she never has, but she wants to be the person who decides whether you can have a Twitter license.
For all of us web marketers, we hope she would grant us permission to have one of these special Twitter licenses.
Twitter acts as a significant social media tool for web marketers who are constantly sharing blog posts, articles and marketing tips to our followers. Social media outlets hold endless potential for building a brand image, collaboration and creating business relationships. Many web marketers would be lost without Twitter.
