Twitter

I'm reading: TwitterTweet this!

SRSLY R U not on Twitter? You're no one if you're not on Twitter.

If you are on Twitter, leave your @ID in the comments. I'll be sure to follow you and maybe other readers will, too.



What's your Twitter philosophy? If you have one, describe it 140 words or less.

I've been treating Twitter like my facebook page. Leave something snarky and such, but then it turns into an IM session! I just don't like the 160 characters or less.
Yes, you all got me. I'm in. I'm already following you!

Kim Moldofsky said...

I got you too, Sprite. I can be IMmy. I have found a lot of interesting posts and even learned a few things from links people leave on Twitter.

Glad you joined in. I knew we'd get to you eventually :-)

Marketing Mommy said...

I finally joined Twitter (as marketingmommy) a couple of weeks ago. Still not entirely convinced the world's interested in either my weekend plans or my snarky political asides, but what the hey.

After a long period of resistance, I finally started posted with my account this week. The reason I did is that I had signed up just to check it out, and I am so exciting and popular that I had collected a few followers. I felt bad to be disappointing my "followers" with my silence.

But now that I'm on there, I can see that everyone's deluged with chatter all the time and no one would have noticed my absence.

But yes, Kim, I was surprised that I was finding out about stuff: two GREAT blog posts about McCain and health care that I was able to include in my post on the subject.

Twitter is kind of a way I can talk to myself online.
Twitter is my imaginary friend.

The benefit of Twitter is the power of connection + attention - there's some special magic in 140 characters giving you insight directly into another's mind.

Jody Reale said...

I use Twitter to record the endless stream of one-liners flowing through my brain. Good thing, too, because I was running out of Post-It Notes.

I don't dare jump into twitter, I spend too much time on Facebook as it is! LOL

Amber Alert said...

haha! I love this stuff... but Twitter is such a fad!

Kim Moldofsky said...

LOL Carrie, I saw you and followed. I am partly to blame for your new bad habit.


Paull, I'm so glad to see you here. I thnkthe attention span is short, but yes, I do consider what I'm reading there. I may never be able to read a novel again.

Jody is funny. And she loves bacon. (See what you learn when you're paying attention?)

Laughingatchaos-you will succumb...

I'm @superdumb and my tweets are sporadic. Sometimes I'm on all the time, sometimes not so much.

Tech Savvy Mama said...

I'm @techsavvymama and didn't get Twitter when I first started but am an addict needing a 12 step program to cure me of constantly checking and responding. Have to agree that I have found great links from others on Twitter but try not to bore everyone with every little mudane detail of my life.

Jessica Gottlieb said...

I follow people who post useful links. Twitter is haiku for geeks.

Kim Hong said...

I love Twitter! I find that people are more than happy to give tips and advice on random things, even if they don't even know you. I'm planning a road trip coast to coast and have received so many great FYIs. @nyjetsetter

Kim Hong said...

You'd be surprised to find out how many people are willing to help you out on Twitter --- even if they don't even know you. @nyjetsetter
