For relatively new users like me, Twitter is an opportunity to keep up with the goings-on of people and organizations I am interested in. It’s educational, entertaining, and often eye-opening…there’s a lot happening out there!
Currently I “follow”: politicians, bloggers, news organizations, other designers, and those without a category. And, for ease of use, I also use the following applications to simplify the process of updating:
My Twitter accessories:
- TweetDeck – a desktop application that allows me to see both Twitter and Facebook updates in a separate window without opening the websites. Updates every minute.
- Twitterberry – allows me to send (and check) updates from my Blackberry while out and about.
Everyone has his or her own reason(s) for using Twitter. For a broader view, here’s a link to some thoughts on the use Twitter. Info compiled by TwiTip. I invite you to join up and try it for yourself!
