What’s in the Box?

As you have most likely noticed, I have update the site once more. I have added a Twitter widget.

What is Twitter?

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 postings to the left – at the time of this writing – are made mostly though SMS. When I have access to a computer, and I think about it, I might make an update through there.

I heard about Twitter awhile back, but never jumped on board. I wondered – who would be interested in what I’m doing? But then again I blog right? Clearly I regard myself as interesting enough to blog, so why not Twitter as well?

Twitter is also known as micro-blogging, since entries are limited (140 characters). It’s similar to sending text messages to someone, but I am sending it to my blog as well. Pownce, which I did a write up on as well, is a similar service with a few differences. I guess Pownce isn’t doing well according to Techcrunch. But Twitter also has issues, mainly downtime, which Techcrunch reports is on the upswing.

You can follow people on Twitter – where you will receive a text message on updates they make on Twitter. I haven’t done this yet because I don’t know anyone on there. But if you sign up for Twitter let me know. I can then follow you!

Give Twitter a spin.
