Yes, I’ve been twittering for a while now – lately I’ve got back into it again after downloading twitterific, which by the way is a supercool little ap. Twitter is yet another social networking tool/site. It allows you to update your status, ex: “stuck in another long staff meeting”, or “getting a ticket for driving through a closed road”. Then people can either see these “tweets” (updates), via your twitter page, or you can install a twitter plugin in your blog (like I have on the right), or you can use a program like twitterific. So basically people can keep tabs on you not just from post to post on a blog, but from tweet to tweet throughout the day.
My favorite feature is the SMS functionality. You can simply text text message twitter with your latest update and boom, just like that it’s up on the world wide web for all to see. Another great feature is the “follow” feature, where you can easily follow other twitters and get their updates throughout the day. For example, I knew that Fred watched American Idol while eating ice cream tonight. Why would I want to know that you might ask? I have absolutely no idea, but it’s cool.
