There’s a strange phenomenon that happens almost every time someone joins Twitter. They hate it. At least at first.
But many of the people who once hated Twitter — or at least, didn’t quite get it in the beginning — are now many of its most active users and raving fans. So what’s going on here?
There seems to be four natural stages that the average Twitter user goes through from the point of first trying it until the point of fully embracing it and making it a part of daily life. Obviously, not everyone sticks with it and becomes a Twitter devotee, but there’s definitely a growing cadre of people who believe that there’s some magic happening in the Twittosphere.
Four stages isn’t nearly enough to describe the average Twitter user, uncyherb says there’s seven.
