…Twitter!!! Described in various circles as the micro-blogging site and in others a complete waste of time, it was Twitter that first got me blogging.
140 characters is all that Twitter permits for each update although the clever amongst us simply update as many time as we need to to get our message across!
I started Tweeting (as us Tweeters/Twitterers call it) early in 2009. I found myself a few celebs to ‘Follow’ and some strange folk followed me - I hadn't a clue who most of them were. One of them, a certain @jaydubblah, started following me because she thought I was somebody else but when she discovered my true identity, she stuck by and didn’t abandon me. Our virtual friendship has gone on to become real as regular readers will recall. Then there was @farctum who appeared one day having recognised me from my photo as an ex work colleague – I have to say that her avatar was not particularly flattering or easily identifiable because it was a green blob!
As I’m writing this I realise that there is so much that I could tell you about Twitter but I think, if you don’t already use it, you need to investigate it for yourself. I must warn you though of the possible side effects – one of which is smiling insanely to yourself when something tickles your fancy and you couldn’t possibly explain it to a non-tweeter!
So I’ll leave you with a couple of images of Twitter – the standard web version and, I think, the best way to Tweet Tweetdeck so go on, sign up, follow me!!! Oh – I’m @easternsparkle by the way!
I prefer Tweetdeck – you can see more of what’s happening!!
