A 19 year old guy who loves blogging and guest posting on other blogs, the editor of iGau.My favorite topic in blogging is Adsense and stuff like increasing Google Pagerank about which I write many blog posts on my blog.

You can get your own content published on this site as long as you have CommentLuv installed on your site.

Doing so means you get exposure to thousands and thousands of other CommentLuv users and your posts get sent out to the massive subscriber list.

Google loves this site and indexes it multiple times per day and posts always get lots of comments so you can be sure of some excellent exposure.

Before that advent of Twitter, there were a lot more personal bloggers who were using sites such as Blogger, WordPress etc to get their opinions across to others. Slowly, there seems to be a shift of these bloggers over to Twitter.In this post I’d like to discuss why blogging is still the “in-thing” and why people should switch back to blogging from tweeting for people using twitter to keep in touch with their friends and family.

Not Enough Characters To Get My Point Across

I want to tell a story.I can’t do it on Twitter.

Twitter gives you only 140 characters, sure its faster, but what if I want to narrate an incident that occurred to me? What if I want to explain something? I need more than 140 characters.Blogging gives you an infinite number of characters to use to get your point across.You can cover everything you want in detail with all the examples you can think of!

I Want My Page To Be Unique

Every single profile on twitter looks exactly the same, so boring right?

In blogs, you can have literally infinite different designs that people implement on their respective blogs.You are free to design your blog the way you like, you can edit the code of your blog to make the design that you like.Twitter just does not offer such liberties and freedom to a user, something they should probably look at doing in the future.

I Can’t Make Money On Twitter!

To be honest, I blog for the fun of it and I blog to

get my point across to my friends and family, but it does not hurt to make a few bucks from it. With inflation and all that jargon, it could be nice to have a few extra spending bucks in our pockets.

Blogging offers hundreds of ways to earn money, through ads, affiliates, links etc.Twitter doesn’t.


To have an account on Twitter, I have to present so many details such as real name, mail address etc which I do not want to be visible to others. But there are easy ways in which people can find mail addresses on Twitter and hence use them to spam others with ads and links that no one really cares about.It’s such a pain isn’t it?

In Blogging, you own the site, you own everything. You do not have to let anyone see your mail or other personal details such as date of birth etc.You have complete privacy.

I Can’t Use CommentLuv. Haha

CommentLuv premium logo

Comments in blogs are the reason why I love to blog and commentluv is my favorite way to ensure there is a good interaction with my readers.There are no third party services in Twitter, which is kind of sad.

Maybe its something ComLuv should look at doing, working with twitter to make some kind of ComLuv feature which could really help bloggers too.

Blogging Vs Twitter Conclusion

So basically these are a few reasons why I feel blogging is better than twitter for people who use twitter as a personal social network.For companies and agencies that need to provide quick updates, Twitter is probably the best way to do it.What do you guys think? Please leave a comment! 


  1. I agree about twittering. I hate to show my personal info just for fun. Wise point of view. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Well said, agree with you. The 140 characters of twitter are something not enough to share personal information and to tell a story.

  3. Twitter has a lot of disadvantages like what you said about typing tweets. The tweet is 140 characters which is too short. Even trying to get traffic to your blog via twitter is never easy especially if you are a new blogger.

  4. Nice Compression, Got lot of new information from your article. Thanks!

  5. Hi Gautham,

    Yes. How true! What is sad is that people like to go with the herd. They communicate with each other and when somebody they trust says something like ” Got to X” they go to that X point. When everybody says that X method is good for traffic then everybody goes for that method. Sooner or later (usually later than sooner) they discover the truth. When everybody knows about a traffic method you can be sure that method doesn’t work anymore or it has lost, probably, 80% of its power.
    The same is with twitter, now. Somebody, probably an influencer, said “Hey! Go to twitter. Socialize there.” People started to listen and a new trend was born.
    What is important is to use your mind, your logic and your reason to find what works and what not. Twitter is not fit for writing articles and for socializing. It’s better for business purposes, like you said, for updates, news and things like that. So why should I bother with this trend? I’ll use twitter for what was and is meant for and that’s all.
    Very important. Whenever you find what you think is a new trend, test it to see if it really works. The results will show you the truth.
    Have a nice day.

  6. All are reasonable gautham but still twitter is more popular and powerful than blogger.Because of some one loves share content in large amount and some one share content in short.

  7. Both do very different things I think. A twitter account is obviously not as comprehensive, and is more of a sharing network for interesting links/pictures/thoughts… things like that. A blog allows you to introduce and discuss topics, go into more details. It’s important to know what you are trying to accomplish with each, confusing the two services can be frustrating both for you and for your viewers/readers.

  8. You do can make money on Twitter provided you have a large follower base. Then you can subscribe for Sponsored Tweets. You need to correct that point.

  9. Leon Bailey says:

    I tweet way more than I blog obviously, but I definitely agree with all of your points.

  10. You can’t even compare the two of them since they have different purposes to a certain extent.

    If you are looking for online success, you will need to grow on both sites. Need to!

  11. You are very right! I am not able to pass my message when using twitter simply because am a man of many words and twitter characters are just not enough for me.

  12. That was a pretty take, Gowtham.

    Blogging is of course better than micro-blogging, what we use on Twitter. But professional blogging cannot be free and one cannot easily become a superstar with personal blog.

    If one is thinking to start a new professional blog, I’m sure this post will give him/her enough of inspiration to get inn.

    Thank you.

  13. You are completely correct in your assessment of why blogging is better for advertising than twitter. Social accounts like twitter, facebook, pinterest, etc. are tools that can be used to direct potential clients to your blog or website and should not be the sole source for advertising your products or services. Like you said, much of your content can be explained or advertised on a blog. Thanks for sharing this online marketing tip.

  15. Its true, blogging has its own advantages like monetizing, but for twitter you can’t do so. Also 140 character of Twitter may fall short and can not express your feeling the way blogging can.

  18. I guess you can express more at Blog than at twitter.
    Moreover the Blog Gives better Exposure

  19. Good article Goutham. Did you notice some people use more than 140 characters? I mean, they break what they want to tell in sentences of around 140 characters and then keep tweeting for the next 20 minutes to get their point across. Funny, but just wondering if you ever came across such people :)

  23. Hey Gautham,

    nice brief comparison. Although I believe both these platforms have their own roles and cannot be compared really. In fact they compliment each other pretty well

  26. Hey Gautham,

    140 characters will not be enough to explain a whole thought. That is what the disadvantage Twitter has compared to a normal blog. With this disadvantage alone, we can say that a normal blog has a very big lead over tweeted contents. Twitter can be made as a compliment tool for a blog but will never surpass it in terms of incorporating or expressing a thought, idea, or information.

  27. a very nice article Gautham..
    blogging is a very good platform not only for making money but i take it as a social networking as it introduce me with many successful bloggers in the blogosphere..
    by the way you’ve created a very nice article.. thanks for the same..:)

  28. it was kind of a new concept when you compared blogging with tweeting. It is because these two are very different things. Blogging is about sharing some knowledge with the potential readers whereas tweeting is all about the social media presence and entertaining the fans and followers.

  29. Twitter is an online social networking service and micro blogging service and followers.

  30. Interesting post, thanks for sharing. Twitter is a different way of communicating than with a blog. I tweet for only brief messages but also use it to promote blog posts. Tweets simply point to other content , it’s like texting instead of a phone call but not every conversation works the same way. My blog is more descriptive and I can completely express my thoughts.

  32. This is also a big issue that most of my friends need money and they are good blog writer but if they make tweet they can’t earn instead of if they write blog and post every week they can earn money easily because a good blog is important that 100 of tweets.

  34. I agree, I do think that you can tempt peoples interest on twitter but it is hard to hammer home a point. Blogging helps you to build a “brand” and really express your point of view.

  35. I agree that 140 characters for twitter is not enough to narrate something in English. The story is a little different when it comes to Chinese. Although twitter is blocked in China, Sina Weibo as website similar to twitter is so success to express things just because of the way Chinese characters are. Its is much easier to write a short story in 140 Chinese characters.
