    What in the world is Twitter?? I keep hearing about it. I just signed up and I don't get it. I just post what I'm doing? For who? What's the deal?

    Yeah, I'm not sure I'm jumping on the bandwagon of something with "twit" in the title...

    doulamom does it, she'll clue us in! (after she smacks me for the 'twit' thing of course...)

    OK, so I just signed up for this to be nosy. From what I can gather you create your networks of friends and then you keep in contact by exchanging status updates. I think it's a condensed version of Facebook.
    If anyone wants to be my friend then PM me for my email addy!

    Hmm. All I use facebook for is status updates and to see friends/family's photos lol this sounds kinda more time efficient...but, wayyyyy too lazy to redo the whole friends list thing (and it's not like it's a long lost LOL) so guess I stick with facebook.

    Hmmm...maybe I should keep you all in suspense considering Zoo's twit comment

    Twitter is a social networking site where you create a very brief profile and you 'follow' people. You post 'tweets' which are like status updates but can only be 140 characters so they need to be to the point.

    The difference betweeen FB and twitter is that on twitter you follow mostly people you don't know but who may share similar interests or post things that you like. You can follow people without them following you and vice versa.

    I follow a lot of feminist mamas on there, homeschoolers, activists etc. and many of them have blogs and post links to articles, news items and just general info that I wouldn't find otherwise.

    You can also follow people you wouldn't normally have access to. I follow Elizabeth May and I know my partner follows John Cleese and some others.

    If anyone joins twitter and wants to follow me PM me and I will give you my username. I don't want to post it here for the whole world to check up on me Oh yeah - and you can lock your updates so only people you approve can see them or follow you. I don't do this as it really limits you and I have had some really cool people find me and then I follow them.

    Phew - I couldn't have said that in 140 characters.

    I read a lot of mommy blogs and a lot of them have twitter, and have it set up to show up on their blog. So sometimes they may not have time to post on their blog, but you can still find an 'update' through their twitter.
