I like the idea of Twitter as a micro-blogging tool.
What is Twitter?
Twitter is for staying in touch and keeping up with friends no matter where you are or what you?re doing. For some friends you might want instant mobile updates?for others, you can just check the web. Invite your friends to Twitter and decide how connected you want you to be.
How does Twitter work?
When you send in a mobile text (SMS), Twitter sends it out to your group of friends and posts it to your Twitter page. Your friends might not have phone alerts turned on so they may check your web page instead. Likewise, you receive your friends mobile updates on your phone.
Twitter not really popular in Australia, and I?m only using it via the web, IM and Facebook, but not via SMS as my plan is not for cheap SMS. I?ve increased my SMS usage recently but not enough to become dependent on it.
I generally write considered posts in this and other blogs, so my status update is an interesting way to let people know about what I?m doing day to day without going into a lot of detail.
