Just getting going with Twitter ( https://twitter.com/DLaskeyPhoto )

It is one of those, it all depends on how you use it.  I see Twitter being a little more solid right now for getting posts out there, where with FB, and recent changes, so many messages get lost.

All of these sites, MM, FB, Twitter have both networking and social components to them and I have begun to really separate these out where I have my personal twitter and FB and then my photography ones. 

I am also seeing more models and photographers doing the same, especially on FB.

I have a Twitter and it has actually gotten me some publication and possible clothing designer/accessories/stylist leads. I am in talks with a designer as we speak and I also just got my latest shoot picked up by a NY based magazine.

Actually, Facebook got me my recently new job, too. All because I kept in touch with former clients (photographers, muas, stylists).

You don't have to "live" on Twitter, Myspace or Facebook, but any social network used for & by professionals seems to be beneficial.

I've had it (have it), used it off and on and for me it hasn't had any relevant effect on anything that I do with photography and film work.  I've even gone full nerd on it at times using tools like hoot suite et al.  I can't remember the last time I looked at twitter.

Come to think of it, part of the reason it's not usually effective except in rare cases is that everyone uses it poorly.  Most people use it in a kind of spam method rather than a true social manner.  Just looking at FB, Twitter, MM shout and main page feeds, you can see that most are just trading "follow me" blasts.  No content.  Just a demand that you add them so you can essentially receive noise on a massive scale.  This is one of those cases where higher numbers doesn't equate to results.  Noise is just noise.

Content generates substantive results.  Engaging.  Doing things face to face still works really well.  Often better.  Just an opinion from my personal experiences over several years.
