Twitter Explained in Plain English

A couple of months ago, I started hearing about this thing called Twitter. Little did I know that this web phenomenon has been around for quite a while. I decided to join and so far I have thoroughly enjoyed this service.


So what exactly is Twitter? Well, Twitter’s home page says it best:

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 art of Tweeting/Twittering is not complicated and requires very little time. You can only enter 140 characters at a time, kinda like an sms. This means that you must keep your post very short and be as brief as you can. You can then update several times a day.

If you want to “follow me” you can do so by joining and click on follow me. Just sign up and follow the directions. It’s easy as pie!

Below is a video which explains Twitter in plain english. This will give you an overview of Twitter in about two minutes.
