Twitter is rife with spam! And I address this a lot with some of the performers I work with. You want to own your brand. Own your domain, and own the content on your website. When you contribute content to Facebook fan pages, Facebook newsfeed, and Twitter, you give
them that content.
You can argue copyright by default, but you put it on their platform, it's theirs now.
Secondly on that, these guys can one day ban you, or otherwise jack up your account, ruining years of creativity, content building, and SEO overnight. The account was free so you can't demand anything
. It's why all this moaning about FB's privacy issue is a moot point. You're not paying them, you are not entitled to anything!
Twitter is good, and actually it has been driving 46% of my traffic recently due to paid tweets, but it's not a long term solution. It's not you. It's not yours.
If you really want to go the free route, use Blogger or Wordpress, at least they can be customized with some learning, but I still highly encourage aspiring professionals to pay for a quality service. I recommend Squarespace. Others on this board like SBI and self hosted Wordpress blogs.
Thanks for sharing your ideas.
