Twitter

Is Twitter becoming popular where all you guys live? It is the rage here right now.

Are there any twitter freaks?

I guess not where you are.

It is a communication tool - it can follow you where ever go. So, if Bentex wanted to tell us he is on the shitter enjoying his morning consitutional, he can broadcast it to his friends. Then if he wants to let us know that he is eating zsir es kenyel for breakfast, he could do that too.

Or, share up to the moment news.

The recent plane crash in the Hudson River was broken by someone on Twitter.

I just wanted to understand if it is a US phenomenon or a global one. Since most everyone here is of a global audience, I can sound smart to my friends here.

It is a global Pali and growing slightly by the day. I think the general feeling though is of people bored of Facebook see it as just another network site. Not sure how big it will get though.

Stephen Fry's twitter is funny. Once he got stuck in a lift and twittered through it. That's was fun. Otherwise I don't see the point.

I don't really know, only followed, didn't write a tweet... Write a sentence (and post a link), you are not really able to do more...

Oh god. Twitter is huge in Australia. During the election TV coverage they even showed tweets on the screen during question and answer sessions etc.

By the way, if any of you guys are on Twitter, Morti21 is doing a great job of tracking game day on Twitter.

He is @HungariaFootbal - I highly recommend following him.

You can follow me too at @indypaul

If there are other Twitter people, post your Twitter handle.
