Twitter anyone?

After seeing a post about Twitter on She Lives, I decided to check out . I set up a Twitter for my blog …….


Twitter only allows less than 15 characters in the name, so I shortened A Southern Daydreamer to SouthDaydreamer. If you would like to follow me on Twitter click HERE.

What is Twitter? From Wikipedia:

Twitter is a free 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 email, or through an application such as Tweetie, TwitterFon, Twitterrific, Feedalizr, and Facebook.

I haven’t had a chance to play around with it much yet. It looks like a neat way to get to know bloggers other than their posts….by answering the simple question “What are you doing?”

Do you twitter? Have you found any useful “tools” to go with twitter? Comment below and let me know what you think!
