Yesterday two people in my “social circle” have joined the service Twitter. After reading ad nauseum on various blogs and news sources on how amazing Twitter is I figured I would join up and give it a go.
For people who are not familar with Twitter here is a blub from their front page about the service.
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?
In the past I tried Pownce and at that time I wasn’t really in the mood to try a service like that. Also Pownce seems more along the lines of sharing files and photos then what Twitter is trying to do. I also think Twitter could be a good middle ground for what I’m trying to do with my blog and google reader.
If anybody decides to take the plunge with me I would totally recommend installing a client for sending and receiving updates. I’ve been using twhirl is a desktop twitter client, based on the Adobe AIR platform. There are many clients to choose from but Twhirl will run on and everything and is free.
My updates will be pretty lame I’m not sure if this service is going to be something I stick with or not but maybe I can try and update at least once a day. If anybody decides to sign up follow @vanlandw.
Also as you can see enfuego is just a twittering fiend…..you must join to witness this revolution.
