I think I am finally beginning to get twitter. I have read a little about it, but I will have to read more to finally understand, I think, if you can understand it completely. I think the best way to understand it is to follow some interesting “tweets” or whatever people want to call them—people who post a little frequently.
I was/am under the impression that what you do with it is kind of like a short (micro) journal entry, so sort of tell what I am doing. But there is more to it, I see now. I have not even gone too deep into it, yet. That’s one of the things I read, that using it as a little journal is a simplistic idea and use. It is really a whole lot more.
I found another site out there with a list of ideas as to what to put out there. It seems to me like people are sending out thoughts, announcing stuff, things like that. I think that people put a lot of information out there, a sort of tool. I saw one of those TED talks a while back where the person talking showed how people were using it as announcements. And as helping each other out—the primary example was finding good gas prices (helpful to all, I am sure).
I am trying out programs and sites and all that, but I have not gotten into a groove yet. It won’t pick up for am for real until I get a Blackberry or other similar device. But I guess not having one now will help me get used to it a little first. Have to get used to all the little nuances and other such things.
