So I’ve signed up to twitter. I haven’t decided on whether or not I like the idea. On the one hand I like the fact that it’s not facebook (who needs all the crap that goes with that?) But on the other, I’m not sure I see the point. Who needs to know what I’m thinking right now?
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?
So there you have it in a nutshell. The concept is fairly simple, you text your answer to that very simple question, in less than 140 characters. Thereby allowing your followers to see what you’re up to now.
I want to get this, but I will need to get some other people to try it out with me first. It has potential, but in order for it to be successful it will have have to remain commercial free or at least just have unintrusive ads down the side.
