It seems like the buzz word on the net is “Twitter” Everyone is talking about Twitter.
Up until today I wasn’t exactly sure what Twitter was. I knew it was a networking site on the net and that a lot of authors were singing its praises. People sing the praises of Face Book too, and many employers were banning the site because so many workers were spending their whole day on the site instead of working. I do have a Face Book account I rarely check and personally I can’t see the appeal. I also have a My Space presence that I visit now and then but I’ve never even looked at Twitter.
So here I go. I have just set up my account.
And I have to say it was fairly user friendly. The site checked my email contacts and listed all of my contacts on Twitter giving me nearly twenty people to follow, basically before I had even started. In the time it has taken me to finish setting up my profile and type this, I have already collected four followers of my very own.
Correct me if I’m wrong but the site displays general messages of anyone I am currently following (like a friends list – even though it sounds a little stalkerish). I’m just wondering how many friends it takes to get really confusing. I’m sure it won’t take me too long to find out.
One thing I have found that is a little annoying. My profile seems to keep resetting back to the generic background and losing my picture. It’s probably just me. I’m sure I’ll work it out.
