Heavens, Twitter (which I just discovered was written using Ruby on Rails how cool is that) is all the buzz these days. Not only has it made the news (BBC) but there are add-ons for Firefox, clients so you can Twitter without bringing up a browser, and tweet from your Facebook page. I had no idea when I signed onto Twitter a year ago (after hearing everyone at CIL go on about it) that it was such a phenomenon.
Some interesting ways Twitter can and is being used:
Businesses can use Twitter tools to help them.
Way to report the news (forget email Breaking News updates)
Remember the milk (manage your tasks)
I even use it as a safety feature. When I’m out walking the dogs in remote areas, I make sure I Twitter what I’m doing and where from my Facebook app on my Blackberry. Who knew that Twitter was this and much, much more…
