I used to hate twitter with a passion, now its like my 3rd arm. Twitter is a social networking site, that many celebrities, musicians and networkers use.
Unlike blogging or facebook, you can only use 140 characters unless you have signed up to a twit longer site. That means most people use it for short sharp statements. I follow a lot of commedians and they seem to be able to use the space to make you laugh. I also like tweets that have interesting links to things.
You can shorten your links using bitly.com and then you still have more space to write about what the link is. You can even follow dooyoo on twitter!
Twitter has become a huge media subject recently with the super injunction and footballer story. He is trying to sue twitter which is a joke in itself as the whole point of twitter is to say whatever you like and if people dont like it then they dont follow you.
The background of twitter can be changed to a picture of your choice, and this can be seen when people view your profile. I would also recommend putting up a picture that appears next to your tweets as people will be more likely to follow you.
There have been books written about how to use twitter to maximise your fan base, and at 169 followers Im getting there! _flauticious_
Summary: i totally love it!
