All A'Twitter

After hearing about Twitter from several friends, I finally got the nudge I needed to sign up when another Etysian sent me an invite. For those of you who haven't seen Twitter before, it's sort of a cross between Instant Messaging and a blog. You can write posts from your computer, an Instant Message program, or your cell phone via text message. Each post must be under 140 characters and the basic premise is that they all answer the same question "What are you doing?". (Although that is a suggestion at best as people twitter about all manner of things.)

For those who have wanted to try out blogging, but have been hesitant of their own ability to generate content, Twitter offers a starting point. It is also a social networking tool, allowing you to connect with and respond to other users. For store owners, Twitter offers a quick way to say "New items in the shop!" without having to find a whole lot more to say about it.

It certainly has the chance to become plenty addictive. : ) I've added my Twitter to my sidebar on the right, showing my three most recent twitters.
