Its hard to explain what it is so I will give an example.

 

Last weekend I was at the Regional Championship game between New Waverly and Sabine. The score at halftime was Sabine 19- New Waverly 22 and I decided I was going to twitter it. So I got my cell phone out and sent a message to twitter (the number for that is 40404.) After I sent that twitter turned around and sent a text message to everyone on twitter that is following me on twitter.

 

It's pretty cool, I am following ESPN, KLTV, Texas Longhorn, Texas Rangers, Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Mavericks, friends from church, and many other things so I am constantly getting updates on my phone about sports stuff and just whatever my friends decide they want to send to everyone.

 

Just make sure you have unlimited text messaging if you create a twitter account. You can go to twitter.com and find out more info.

it sounds like text messaging on steroids to me. And we

all know what steroids do. They, 'roids, make you think

that you are really something when you aren't.

This is the dumbest thing that I've ever heard about. I like time on my hands. I sure don't want everyone in my "social network" to know where I am, and what I'm doing 24 hours a day. When I do something, it may or may not be that important to broadcast to everyone. On top of that, do they want to hear about it ? NO. I don't think our lives are that important to where everyone wants to know what we do every second of the day.

 

I can remember a time when you had dinner that you wouldn't take phone calls. Now we want to know when anyone has flatulence. When is it going to stop ?

I have a few friends that have twitter accounts and they said it was a waste of time.

 

I have a facebook and a myspace account and they are light years ahead of twitter.

Sounds like Big Bro ...wanting to know. Personally, I think we need more stimulus money directed to this technology.

 

The funny thing is, people are offering it for free. There isn't a need for Big Brother, when people are offering the information to them.
