Since everyone is talking about it, I figure it was time to find out what this Twittering business is all about. So, I went over to Twitter.com to set up an account and what do you know, some squatter took my name (six months ago, no less). I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by such things.
What The Hell is Twitter?
I’m still trying to find the answer to that question. As far as I can tell, Twitter is like a dynamic IM that anyone can read. According to the Twitter home page:
Twitter is a service for friends, family, and coâ€“workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?
The twitts are limited to 140 letter posts and can be updated from the web or any SMS enable device, like a cell phone. So far, I’ve made only eight updates, which either means I’m still getting use it or I have a very boring life.
I only have 29 people following me on Twitter at the moment. I’m sure that number will increase as more people find me. If you want to see what goes on in the daily life of a dot com mogul, then add me to your Twitter account.
