To twitter that is. I know, I know, I can hear everyone’s “finally!” or ” OMG” or ” what took you so long”. The truth is I just never really saw the need to “tweet” or be a follower and really thought I didn’t have the time to do it. [which still may be the case :)] It was Halloween night and I was getting ready to watch ORPAN, I saw a tweet on my facebook page and decided to actually go to twitter and see how the whole thing works. I never intended on signing up, really. However, there isn’t much info on the site so I closed the window. I immediately opened a new window in my browser, typed in www.twitter.com and then looked for something…anything. Exactly what is twitter and how does it work? Is it just tweeting? Is it like facebook? I mean I heard about the Ashton Kutcher/Larry King twitter challenge, but I really didn’t know much about it. I mean President Obama tweets! Before I knew it, I pressed the green SIGN UP NOW button, filled out all the info and joined.
I’ve since realized it is a powerful tool and many business use it to offer specials or incentives to “followers”, so I finally caved in. I am trying to familiarize myself with the interface and get acquainted with twitterland. It’s pretty bare. I don’t have a profile pic yet nor did I tweet. If anyone out there wants to give me some twittering advice, the do’s and don’ts or the little secrets, PLEASE let me know. Email me, leave a comment or send me a message. We could even meet for lunch.
