Twitter-rific !!!

So, have you heard about twitter? It's the latest thing on the web, and it's super addictive. A friend introduced me to it a few weeks ago, and now I'm hooked. If you look to the left, you can see my twitter status.

Basically, twitter is like a micro blog. You can update your twitter page, but the updates must be less than 140 characters, kinda like a text message. And if you have twitter friends, you get alerted when one of your friends updates.

You can update twitter using an IM client (Google Talk or AOL), sending an SMS using your mobile, or on the web page itself. There are also several 3rd party twitter clients.

Anyway, it appears I'm talking too much geek talk. Try it out for yourself. There is a newbie's guide here. And don't forget to add me as a friend !!

  6. Omodudu: You have been added. You don't need to use text messages for everything, I use IM for all my notifications, and for updating. I only use text messages when I'm on the road.
