    I thought that was you when I saw the avatar of the new person following my account on Twitter.

    I haven't used it much lately, but it's still a piece of my lifestream. I'm doing my status updates on facebook and will be reserving twitter for microblogging.
  6. not really.
    all it is is like a one line blog.
    I know others from this site are on it.
    Its acts almost as an autoreply as to what you are currently doing.
    For instance, mine says at work until five today.
    Others it says working on my classic car this weekend, etc.
    heard about it on treocentral/ wmexperts.com which they use to report from tradeshows....

    When I want to reach my brother and want to know where the heck he is, if he has twitter it would send me a txt message if I set it up that it would tell me he is at a wedding, or in a meeting, etc.

    Tony,

    If you want a Twitter client for your Q, try CETwit:

    http://rainmakerrc.googlepages.com/ceTwitsp_11.CAB

    If will allow you to do just about everything you would do on your Twitter page.

    But, if you're like me, and just want at quick way to post (which is part of the appeal of using Twitter and other similar services on a cell phone) and not necessarily to read other ppl's tweets, then SMS is probably the way to go. I personally use the mobile version of HelloTxt's website (m.hellotxt.com) on IE because it loads fast and allows for simultaneous posts to Twitter and other sites (like Facebook, Jaiku, MySpace, etc.).

  13. do you find yourself getting spam at all with twitter?

    you are still perty :)

    There is just that extra something about facial hair. We ladies had a bit of chatter about it awhile ago.

    Nothing wrong with clean shaven.

    So you went totally buff from the neck up? lol
