The internet is all about Twitter these days. I'm doing my damndest to keep up, but it isn't easy.
I resisted Twitter for the longest, figuring that it must be a silly waste of time and that I had nothing to say in 140 characters to a bunch of people I didn't know. I signed up a few months ago, but remained totally intimidated. Every time I went to the site I felt like the wallflower at a college mixer. All those @ replies scared me a bit and I didn't know a RT from an RSVP.
Last week I finally downloaded Tweetdeck and got serious. I plunged in and have been learning by doing. I discovered the awesome power of this deceptively simple program. So now I'm on Twitter every day, following, being followed, and finding it a treasure trove of useful information and blog fodder. I get up to the minute breaking news, different slants on every topic under the sun and the most amazing inter-active search function. On top of it all it turns out there are a lot of very bright, very interesting and funny people on Twitter exchanging wisdom and witticism and guess what....it turns out they are very friendly:-)
Time for the Twitter song! Check it out and follow me on Twitter:-)
