Twitter: A New Toy


I'm not sure how many people are aware of the new social network called Twitter. If you have not heard of Twitter, you must not keep up with the news. Twitter seems to be all the rage these days. I signed up about three months ago...and then just ignored it. But, for the last month, I have actively engaged in this new toy on the internet. I guess you could say I'm becoming addicted to it. Click my username "korsondo" if you wish to add me as a follower. If you do, I will follow right back. The only thing I find lacking is that you can't link but one site or blog you own. Other than that, I think it's great.

Twitter boils down to just basically one question; what are you doing? A lot of people answer that question in the 140 characters you are allowed in one message. But, a lot of people engage in networking, whether it be business, social or whatever. I have been discussing both blogs that I have right now. I have seen my visitor list grow as a result in both blogs. The RSS feed, especially on this blog, has grown substantially. Last week I went from 57 readers to 73 readers over night. It has backed off some since last week. But, I was stunned by that. I have also met a lot of people who share my love for writing there. That is what attracts me most to Twitter.

I enjoy it. I have met lots of people, including some from right here in my hometown. If you are not a member, you might want to give it a try. I'm definitely hooked on it.
