Request for Twitter Help Ok all, In my field of work, twitter is becoming a tool increasingly used for information dissemination. I need to get up to speed on it. To date, I've pretty much ignored it. I know the basics of what it is of course. Some of the things I don't know are: Is there desktop software to receive twitter "feeds", akin to an RSS reader? Are there any recommendations for that, if such things exist? If I wanted to (not at all sure I do), could I get tweats on both this desktop software and on my phone? Do tweats come in as data or a text message? How do I find out if someone/some agency is on Twitter? Is there some central database to look them up? Do I have to "twit" in return to receive feeds? How do you send a picture on a tweat? How do you view a picture on a twit/tweat/<insert proper term>? Is there a good tutorial somewhere on all of this? Please understand that I have no desire to join the social networking aspect of this stuff. What PrettyMary76 does while standing in line at the grocery store is of no interest to me. And frankly, I don't know why it would be of interest to anyone else. (Sandee Westgate might be a different story :tounge BUT...if agencies are using this as an information dissemination tool for my industry, I need to get on board, so I'm looking for info / tutorial / apps, etc to help me get up to speed. Thanks in advance for any information you would be willing to share.
