Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send “updates” (text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) via SMS, instant messaging, the Twitter website, or an application […] Updates are displayed on the user’s profile page and also instantly delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. The sender can restrict delivery to those in his or her circle of friends (delivery to everyone is the default). Users can receive updates via the Twitter website, instant messaging, SMS, RSS, or through an application.
If you’re a Facebooker, it’s like changing your status. It’s a quick post to the world and/or your friends of what’s going on. I can enter my line of text from any web browser (be it my computer or my mobile phone).
But I couldn’t figure out how Twitter would fit into my overall internet presence. Then I found a way to make Twitter make a new blog post so here at Rob’s place, not only do you get my blog posts, but I’ll be adding quick bursts of text every once in a while. And I kind of like it this way because now you can comment on these ‘status updates’ or micro-blog posts or text blasts or whatever you want to call’em.
So for now, I’m a Twit. And probably a twit for being one. We’ll see how it goes. What do you think of Twitter and/or having these updates here at Rob’s place?
