How tweet it is...

It used to be "Do you yahoo?" then it was "Do you have a Blog?" closely followed by "Are you on Facebook?" but the newest craze to sweep the net is Twitter. Ok, maybe not so very new. It's been around for a while but I only discovered it a few months ago. For me, as wtih many people it's become a big part of my daily routine. It took me a while to find my way and to discover what the point of it all was. So, if Twitter is still a big mystery to you, here is what I've discovered.

Twitter is what you make of it.
It can be somewhere you visit several times a day, or once a month. Somewhere you post advertisements, new book releases, reviews or hold chats. It can be where you go to find out about all of those. It's a place to go to keep track of how your favorite author is progressing with their work in progress. Find out behind the scenes information about your favorite tv shows from the people who work on them. Touch base with your favorite actors or comedians. Find out what's happening in the world, sometimes before it hits the news. Or just make new friends and chat about your lives. In the few months I've been a member of the community I've done all those things and more.
So tell me, do you tweet?

I always feel like I should blow a whistle when someone asks me that, but my answer would still be 'Yes, I tweet." :) I find it useful for posting notices about updates for blogs (like this one!) and for keeping in touch with friends.

Hard to keep up with the Next Big Thing...but at least Twitter is fun!

I'm a randome tweeter. I'm trying to be a bit more consistent but it's hard to keep up with everything that everyone is doing. I enjoy your tweets Cait!

I don't tweet. Honestly, I got lost in the Facebook, Myspace thing. I'm not technology minded and all this stuff just gives me a headache. LOL It's all I can do to keep up with my yahoo groups, website and blogs...and get some writing done in there as well.

I admire anyone who can handle all the new technology and just run with it!

Alas, I don't tweet. I don't Facebook either. I was lucky to get a MySpace page up along with my website. Perhaps I'll break down in the future and join the craze, but right now I'm concentrating on finishing this book I promised myself I'd have done by the end of August.

Happy tweeting to everyone who does it!

Lynn, off to write
