Article Title: Why non-smokers are getting lung cancer
This article presents, with the help of various studies, the benefits of using Twitter. With the rise in social media usage, the gap between celebrities and their fans is diminishing. Twitter plays a major role in it. Celebrities and politicians find it easier to bond with their fans and supporters. Celebrities often share their personal as well as professional details on Twitter and this can foster a sense of intimacy with their fans and followers. They use Twitter as a means of communication with their fans, but often the interaction is unreciprocated on the part of the celebrities.
Politicians too benefit immensely by using Twitter as it allows candidates to communicate directly with voters, without journalistic interference. Such kind of direct conversations with the politicians heightens their intention to vote for the candidate. However, this kind of the perception of intimacy with a political candidate exists only among people who are more affiliative. Sure, there are cases of stalking on Twitter, but a spirited interaction facilitates conversation and camaraderie among the famous, infamous and the anonymous.
