You may not yet be aware of Twitter but the same people who say that MySpace is “so 2005” seem to be Twittering to their heart’s content. So, what is it and is it the future baby!? Well, I’m not really sure on both counts…
I’ve just started using Twitter and I’m still not quite sure how useful it is, or indeed whether it’s even meant to be useful. It works in a similar way to the status update feature on Facebook so you can keep friends, family, stalkers etc updated on what you’re up to, how you’re feeling or anything else. The big difference really is that you can update it using your mobile meaning if I bump into Kate Moss while out shopping, I can instantly tell everyone about it. But only if they’re checking what I’m up to.
Hmmm…. The blurb on their site says “Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?” The answer may be “I am Twittering”.
So…..I know you’re wondering… what am I doing?
