So what is twitter anyway?

Some people have called it "micro-blogging", some call it an ongoing conversation, kind of like Instant Messenger, but based around the World Wide Web augmented with SMS from mobile phones. I think this video sums it up nicely.

For me, it is a way to keep up with friends overseas who are too far away to telephone and in the wrong time zone at the wrong time when I want to talk to them.

By the way, in the previous post, when I said "follow me on twitter", I don't actually want you following me ok? That would be a little weird. Just let me know what you're doing and send me a tweet or something. That sounds much more civilised - no cyber-stalking :-)
