Are you a texting fiend? If so, this website is for you. Twitter.com is one of the "new kids on the block" and seems to be making waves in the technology world. By using SMS technology, Twitter allows you to send updates to your "followers" from your phone directly to theirs. One "tweet" (text message) will go out to however many people are signed up to follow you. If you're familiar at all with Facebook.com and how their status update feature works, this is basically the same thing, except it goes directly to peoples' cell phones. In essence, this allows you to do what many are coining "microblogging" - there is a 140 character limit which basically allows you a couple of short sentences per "tweet". But the advantage is you can do from anywhere you are able to send text messages.
You'll notice I've added in the right-hand sidebar a list of my 5 most current "tweets" - you can follow along that way if you'd like. Or you can click on the "Follow Me on Twitter" link on the bottom (or just click here) and that will take you to my Twitter page where you can sign up to follow me there. I'm still getting used to it, but I can see the potential for a tool such as this. Just make sure you cell phone plan includes unlimited text messages - or else turn off the phone notifications before you sign up to follow anyone. That would be a nasty surprise in the mail!
