Twitter has created quite a buzz for itself in the first quarter of this year- managing to combine the ease of Instant Messaging and SMS with the reach and scope of social networking services. So what’s all the buzz about?
Twitter: A beginners guide will give you all the information you need, and fill you in on this social networking phenomenon. I don’t think everyone is ready for Twitter – but I have found it a real boon for keeping in touch.
I don’t have a public profile – as I only really want to twitter with people involved with education. All up I have 65 friends – leading educators from around the world as well as in Australia – more than I could hope to keep in touch with using ‘traditional’ methods of communication like email!
“heyjudeonline” (me) is not online all the time – but when I link in I can quickly catch up. I also have the option of sending messages directly to my ‘friends’. I like the zany personal touch that twittering allows. It might be a passing fad – but twittering is part of the evolving shape of online communication – so for now I tweet! I do this online at twitter, or within FaceBook. There is a Sydney Twitter Meetup in Facebook! I’ll have to get myself invited 🙂
I don’t use my mobile to tweet – but I will certainly turn it on for the Sydney twitter meetup!
Why don’t you come and join me?
