When I relocated to a new place after my marriage, I had to quit my job in order to accommodate the movement. For a workaholic who is used to working fifteen hours in a day, the free time initially came as a welcome but gradually turned to be a solitary confinement. With lot of effort and countless thoughts I started searching for work-from-home options. My previous experience could no longer help me work at home so alternately I decided to do the next best thing I am good at i.e. writing. With a self-paced attitude I started working on it and today I am a full time content writer. Since then I believed that Content writers are born with not just flair for writing but a motive behind writing. Each content writer motive may differ from one another. Motive aside, content writers are an outcome of choice and circumstance too.
Trends in Content Writing
When I say motive web content writers often look for a platform to showcase their skills, ideas, message, thoughts and beliefs. They can range from voicing on social issues to keeping a dairy of events, from conveying a community awareness message to making people aware of social taboos, from writing about a random event to writing on review on new film or a book, from writing about a new service to writing about a company. Content writing is thus boundless. Content writing has now become trendy and the finest way to spread a message. While content writing is one way of voicing the opinions and concerns, it can only be coupled with a platform to voice it. This platform is a social media platform, social networking platform and print media. This platform can be broadly classified into internet based and non-internet based.
One such popular, most favored, sought after and widely used internet based social networking platform is “Twitter”. Twitter came in to existence in 2006 and rapidly gained popularity. Twitter accounts are public and these messages can be viewed by a wide section of people across all the world. Twitter also gained a mass acceptance in the political sections, celebrities and among the shakers & movers of the society. This has in turn raised it as best used social networking platform to convey our opinions, views in the form of short messages called tweets. Each twitter account holder has followers who would be aptly getting the tweets posted by the account holder. They have an option of responding to the tweets too. This is a platform which is
• Widely used
• Open platform
• Free of cost
• Easily accessible
With a host of benefits Twitter becomes one of the best social networking channels to voice out. Content writers have thus found a new arena to spread the message and follow people’s opinion. This potential relationship had thus empowered content writers to use twitters extensively.
Twitters & Content Writers
• Content Writers feel the need to connect with the wide section of audience for spreading their views, messages, propositions and thoughts.
