twitter_logo I'm giving Twitter a try!  What is Twitter?  Simply put, it's short 140 character or less 'instant message like' updates.  My take on it is that I can use it to post interesting or funny little tidbits of info that I'd normally like to blog about, but don't have the time to write a whole post for and just want to share the info quick.  I've been hearing about twitter for awhile now, but thanks to Alan Stevens for 'the last straw'.

Here's a great quick little video explanation from http://www.commoncraft.com/Twitter

I just installed twirl which is essentially an Twitter IM client.  It looks real nice and turns Twitter into pretty much a group IM.


(I entered my contact list into Twitter to find friends, but instead Twitter e-mailed them all, including an e-mail address that posts directly to my blog, this is the Twitter mail...)

Twitter Team: About Twitter
Twitter is a unique approach to communication and networking based on the simple concept of status. What are you doing? What are your friends doing—right now? With Twitter, you may answer this question over SMS, IM, or the Web and the responses are shared between contacts.


Do you 'twit'?  I'm curious how others are using twitter...
