Remember what the tweety bird said? Whatever! Now the only tweet you hear is from twitter. I had a quick chat with @vemana after a long time.
I miss the tweetups, a meeting of the Hyderabad social networking geeks. You have people who like to review and watch hundreds of movies in a year, guys who earn money from blogging and more.
You hear about fancy terms and cool software. Makes me realize that I’m outdated:-)
This time I will make sure to be at the next tweetup in march.
What is twitter?
A place you type in short messages (tweets) for the world to read.
Who reads these tweets?
Anyone can read them.
I want an account. I have no time?
It takes just 2 minutes to create an account. I just timed an account creation. Go to www.twitter.com now.
People love my amazing life. So now what?
Well people who are interested in what you say can become your “followers”. These followers can automatically see your tweets on their homepage. This is very similar to Facebook buddies updates appearing in your home page.
Is this useful? Am i wasting my time?
Sometimes you could spend a lot of time going through aimless tweets. Just like you could surf the internet aimlessly. But it’s a great way to keep your friends updated about your life.
Many companies like Google, Microsoft etc use this medium to directly interact with their users.
Thanks for the write-up. Can we follow you on twitter?
Sure. This is me.
By the way. What do you use to send tweets?
I use launchy, the simplest way to post tweets to my account. I also send tweets from mobile.
I don’t know. Can’t think clearly, too tired!
