    Cool Come join us on Twitter!

    London Moms has made the jump to twitter! We will be using this as a means to communicate contests and special things happening with London Moms.

    We also have one for our sister site http://www.waterloo-moms.ca

    Incase anyone hasn't heard of twitter:
    Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users' updates (otherwise known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.

    Updates are displayed on the user's profile page and delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends (delivery to everyone being the default). Users can receive updates via the Twitter website, SMS, RSS, or through applications such as TwitterMobile, Tweetie, Twinkle, Twitterrific, Feedalizr, Facebook, and Twidget, a widget application. Four gateway numbers are currently available for SMS: short codes for the United States, Canada, and India, and a United Kingdom-based number for international use. Several third parties offer posting and receiving updates via email. Twitter had by one measure over 3 million accounts[1] and, by another, well over 5 million visitors in September 2008, a fivefold increase in a month.[2]

    One suggestion to LMs (the site, not users) is to personalize your tweets on twitter as well as using it to promote the site. You will get more folllowers if you post more than just contests and perks.

    Just a suggestion from a twit

    I think Facebook is enough to manage on top of all of the other sites to surf when the wee one is asleep. Thanks though!
