I heard about Twitter a few months ago, but despite being an early adopter, I didn’t check it out. Here’s Wikipedia’s definition:
Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send “updates” (or “tweets”; text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) to the Twitter website, via short message service (e.g. on a cell phone), instant messaging, or a third-party application such as Twitterrific or Facebook.
Okay, I can see the allure. On Facebook, I enjoy reading that “Sarah is eating cookies. Nrm!” or that “Erin is taking her midterm!” It makes me feel closer to my friends to know what they’re doing — not just in general, but right now. That’s one of the things I love about blogging: not just hearing about the big events in my friend’s lives, but also about the small ones. The magic is in the details, after all.
Do any of you twitter? What do you think of it?
