Apply Your Passion
I think that twitter gives us the capability to contact and communicate with people in the music industry that otherwise would be unreachable or unable to contact by our means as listeners or fans. I think that it can be useful to display to other people such as employers or people we want to work with in our career to show them the things that we have an interest in or even show them that we our interested and engaged in the music industry news as well as social media and networking. I think it could be useful for establishing connections with the right people in the industry. I had never used twitter before taking on this assignment but even within the first two days of having it I am blown by the capabilities of communication. I contacted the lead singer of my favorite bands and was able to identify myself to him from a concert almost two years prior where myself and 2 other friends got to come up on stage and dance/sing our asses off with our favorite band. It was really cool to be able to connect with him like that and express to him what an amazing moment that was for us. Without twitter I doubt I ever would have really had the chance to connect with him and reflect on that moment. It really showed me the potential of the network that I think can for sure be applied to out industry careers.
