For the uninitiated…
Twitter is a nifty “micro-blogging” service where you are limited to no more than 140 characters to say anything. It is kind of like a mix of instant messaging, blogging, and Facebook status updates, but without the fees, the need to write a whole lot, and the clutter of Facebook. Twitter also has a unique way of allowing conversations between other “tweets” (people who use twitter) through “@replies” and “direct messages.”
If you’ve never tried it, you might consider checking it out because it is pretty fun. I’ve been able to meet a number of LCC readers through twitter – in fact I even met one of them at the Austrian Scholars Conference two weeks ago! What a surprise that was!
You can “follow” me on Twitter via @normanhorn. See in the tweetosphere!
