What is Twitter? 2

Twitter? What is it? Do I need it? Should I get it?

I will admit that initially I wasn’t too keen on it, but it is growing on me and the more people that I connect with the better it gets. But you have to be careful. It is not something that is private, it is very public.

Like all technology, it is a tool and you may not find it useful, but then again, you may find it to be a great resource.

For those of you who have never heard of Twitter, here is a brief video that I discovered over at Common Craft.

Twitter secrets that you might not know about:

  • http://www.twhirl.org/ will give you a free download to use Twitter from your computer’s desktop.
  • http://www.twitterfeed.com/ will take any blog you have…Active Rain, Blogspot, Flickr…anything with an RSS feed…and will post it as often as you like to your Twitter. So you don’t even have to GO to Twitter to Tweet.
  • Have a wordpress blog? Twitter Tools – Have your blog automatically notify Twitter when you post
  • Twitter Etiquette – Evolving attitudes and concepts from Twitter users on how to behave on Twitter
  • TweetScan – Search public Twitter posts in real-time from the page or using Firefox’s search box. Find replies, track keywords, and sign up for daily/weekly email alerts.

Hope that this explains it for you! If you join Twitter, I invite you to follow me

    Colleen – this is an awesome primer on Twitter, and after talking to you about this, it’s all beginning to make a lot more sense to me now. I checked out the video and the links in this post – great info in each of them. I checked out the blocks, and kinda get that. I experimented and went and left a new tweet then came back to your block – it didn’t show up but it did when I cliicked on Missy’s. Kinda interesting how all that stuff works!

    Thanks for writing all this out – a BIG help.
