(this is actually an old post but i love twitter so much i thought i would share it fresh — enjoy!)
I do this thing called twitter-ing but not enough people do it. It’s one of those deals, if it’s going to be any fun a lot people need to do it.
Here the jist of twitter
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?
Why? 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.
That’s what the website says, here’s what i say. Twitter is a cool way to stay connected with friends and peoples you like while your not around them. Periodically they shoot a little text messages (via web / computer or phone) and periodically you do that same. Just letting people follow what’s going down, what your up to. It’s a fun way to stay connected and foster a small bit of community in spite of distance. Yea, it’s kinda a cool little deal.
SO… go to www.twitter.com and set up your account. Find me, Erik Willits (my twitter nick name is edubs79) and click — follow. Then we will be friends and get to hear what going down from time to time. Good times!
Shalom & Twitts
