Here we go again! I’ve just joined Twitter, a micro blogging social networking site. You’d think that with Tazzu and FaceBook I’d have my fill of online networking… not! Networking has become a way of life for me, and Twitter allows me to connect yet again on another level with friends.
“Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?”
“Because even basic updates are meaningful to family members, friends, or colleagues—especially when they’re timely…
Eating soup? Research shows that moms want to know.
Running late to a meeting? Your co–workers might find that useful.
Partying? Your friends may want to join you.”
“With Twitter, you can stay hyper–connected to your friends and always know what they’re doing. Or, you can stop following them any time. You can even set quiet times on Twitter so you’re not interrupted. Twitter puts you in control and becomes a modern antidote to information overload.”
Twitter is best described as micro blogging website. Each tweet (post or update) holds only up to 140 characters maximum. Believe it… Twitter counts them for you. 140 characters is just enough room to sum up in 1 sentence what is going on in your world, so that all your friends can be in the loop. Popular tweets are: links, events, comments, questions, thoughts etc.
Imagine a flock of birds perched in a tree, each one communicating in short tweets whatever is on his/her mind – that is Twitter! The more friends you follow (and follow you) the more twittering you will see on your own home page.
