    1. Twitter is a great tool… follow me if you already aren’t. @chrisjacobson

      1. Those sneaky people… great idea! Good to see others are enthusiastic about Twitter too!

        I don’t think many people realize how awesome it is. When it came out, everyone was wondering what the big deal was.

        Now we know! (or at least we should know!) :mrgreen:

  9. Geiger says:

    I love and hate the idea of Twitter. It’s great if I want to know where you are, other times I just want to unplug myself from the internet and hide for a while.

  10. Thiago Prado says:

    Of course twitter is a great tool the only problem is the high traffic the system can’t handle and the website is down all the time.
    I think they should either define a time to post stuff or use a third-party application to take care of that.

  24. Chessmaster says:

    I going to download this book, I’m not sure why everyone is “adoring” twitter, I need to read about it. Personally I don’t really like the idea, didn’t someone already try to impersonate John Chow on msn lately?

  25. Germz says:

    John did you change server? I added your Entrecard blog to my Entrecard Generator script and when It loaded I was getting your website’s cpanel congratulations message.
    Thanks.

    1. John Chow says:

      Nope, still the same server. It’s just the way BlueFur set things up.

      1. Germz says:

        Oh thanks, I actually just checked and it turns out I added a “w” to http://www.johnchow.com so your subdomain was getting the traffic lol.

    Thanks for this post John, I’ll check out that book.

    I let people write on twitter about my most recent contest to get extra entries, but I’ve never actually used twitter myself. I’ve signed up and I have a few people following me, but I’ve yet to, uh, “tweet” I think the word is.

    I’m so behind, I know. 😯

  33. Kim says:

    This sounds interesting. My husband and I just created a blog and would like to generate interest. In addition to other tools, Twitter may be very useful. Thanks!

  34. Kim says:
