I'm in search for answers about this new craze called "Twitter." I have been on it for about a week now (sorry for those that received invites, I thought it was checking for my friends that also had it) and I will play around with it for another month or so. But for the most part all it is about is updating people on what you doing or feeling. For those that are on Facebook, Twitter is only the status update but with a 140 character limit per update. You can send messages directly to people or comment in a way on someone else's update.
I do wonder how Twitter was able to claim this as "their idea." One cool part about it though, there are a lot of celebs that are on it and if you want to keep up with the OMG of the rich and famous, you will be kept entertained. You can make updates from desktop or by cell phone.
If you are bored and are looking for something new to do on your smart phones, try it out. You might like. Twitter does not seem to be leaving anytime soon.
Here are a couple of sites to get you started:
