Twitter - what's it all about?
I wrote this post a while back. The content can still be relevant but the information I've linked to may not be available.
Twitter is a website that has received quite a buzz. However, I must admit that it is not something that immediately says to me 'I must join'.
Twitter is a community of friends and strangers from around the world sending updates about moments in their lives. Friends near or far can use Twitter to remain somewhat close while far away. Curious people can make friends.
Hmmmm. Sounds like the potential for a lot of trivia. More excuses for text messaging. I guess it depends on what type of person you are. For me, I think I have enough to do without texting 'Off to the shops now'.
Perhaps I am not seeing the full picture here. I'm always a bit of a 'late adopter' though.
