After reading Kitty_Salinas' micro review I though it would be helpful to share how I deal with the over tweeters or TMI'ers. Below is my six step program that I have been using for a few weeks and it seems to help.     Stop sending them to your device via SMS (in my case the iPhone), they talk way too much to be constantly notified of their updates... (See step 5) Create and use Twitter lists to segment the people you follow into smaller more relevant groups of people. …

I have a love-hate relationship with twitter.  Everything about twitter is a catch-22 to me.  On the one hand, it's kind of creepy that the entire interweb has the capability of seeing me update on the go, as well as the fact that it sends notices to twitter members who choose to be updated on my status, it's also, well, simply put, FUN.  As well as convenient and super easy to update.    Pros  -It's fun to update!  Currently, it can be updated through …

King (CNNbrk) lost out to Kutcher! The 1st to cross 1 million followers, that is. Oprah is tweeting now. What next? Obama too?! Well, looks like Twitter is now officially mainstream! Better march your way to twitterland and start tweeting, or is that twittering? ...         Behind the scene:         P.S. I'm trying to keep this review short and sweet, the very notion of a tweet! Do check out the videos if you'd like to explore …

I'm not afraid to admit it, I'm completely addicted to Twitter.     In case you haven't read the other reviews, and never took the time to check out twitter.com; Twitter is an online communication tool that allows you to post a "micro-blog" post of only 140 characters or less.     I started using Twitter about a year ago but it took me a few months to realize the potential that this tool has. One thing is for sure, I can tell why some may hear about the buzz, …

OK, maybe I lied a little in my review title. I kind of get why people would use Twitter, if they're the type to want to follow their favourite celebrity or just want to get the odd news snippet, but apart from that, I simply don't get the appeal. I can't be accused of not giving it a go as I've tried twice. Two times I have logged into Twitter with the sincere intention of joining in with the fad and following my favourite celebrities such as Stephen Fry, Charlie Brooker and David Mitchell; but …

Who would have thought 140 characters would have changed the landscape of Social Networking? Everyone seems to be using Twitter. Celebrities, politicians, television channels, spammers, you name it they're probably on Twitter or working out a plan to use it.      I didn't get Twitter when I first got an account. It's got a learning curve that's curiously harder to grasp than I thought. I'm an avid Twitter user and for a number of reasons.      I refused to …

   The word sounds so funny to me. Tweet. Back in 2008 we as a world fell into this craze called Twitter.  It has actually been around a lot longer than that but gained popularity then.  I have mixed feelings on Twitter because I feel it can hurt someone but on the other side of things, make someone very successful.  Do I have a twitter account.  Yes, for website publicity.  A personal twitter account. No.  I will admit that I used to have a personal …

When I first heard about Twitter - I'll admit - I was hesitant to sign up. I just didn’t see the appeal or value in using this IM-based social networking and microblogging service with all the other alternatives out there (i.e. Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.). And I just couldn’t fathom why anyone would give a hoot…uh…tweet as to what I was doing? I’m not Angelina Jolie or an American Idol. I’m just a simple girl, with extraordinary goals.      …

if you use it right...
twitter's value is all dependent on how you use it. some people follow just celebrities and news feeds, and receive value from the service that way. i, personally do not see that as beneficial.       however, if you find people that are in your field, vocation or hobby, and actually use the service to interact with those groups of people, you can gain valuable connections.       i also don't think twitter is for everyone. i only really started enjoying …

I've grown to really find the various ways you can use Twitter very helpful. Below are some tips and ways to help understand Twitter more, especially for new users or people trying to build up their following.       Everybody is welcome to chime in if I missed anything!       Two Things I've Learned About How Twitter is Different      1. Twitter is not your status update. Before recently, I used to think of Twitter as a platform …

I'm on Facebook, I Tweet and I Digg 'em; therefore I am....
For years MySpace had taken the world by storm as the social networking giant, then came Facebook, Twitter, Digg and all those who came running in after them to cash in on the social media craze.  Myself, I joined Facebook almost two years ago, followed by Twitter and Digg last year.  I joined Facebook for family and friends as well as to reconnect with old friends and classmates.  I have even made some interesting networking contacts.  :It seems that just about everyone and …

Nice, but rather distracting. It seems most people are only there to sell each other things.
review by . February 19, 2010
Professional social media people and people who are looking to increase the number of followers usually start mass following people, in the hopes that they will follow them back. The role of thumb in this situation is that ~%30 of the people you follow will follow you back. Once you gain a critical mass of followers it will be easier to get the next ones, especially it your twitter user name will be part of Twitter's #FollowFriday.      Note that Twitter is looking out to make …
Quick Tip by . September 21, 2010
Pointless, idiot communication format. Too little information to be anywhere near worth the time sorting. I predict it will disappear very soon as people quickly tire of the newness and recognize its shortfalls.
Quick Tip by . August 25, 2010
Quick way to keep up to date on topics of interest. It is worth wading through the chaff to find the kernels of wisdom.
Quick Tip by . July 05, 2010
The best way to enjoy this 140-characters-or-less social networking site (although I'd argue that Twitter has evolved into much more than just a website; mobile phenomenon, LIFESTYLE, etc.) is to "feed" it from other sites from time to time. Easy connectivity to web giants such as Facebook, YouTube, Last.fm & even Lunch.com makes for quite the effortlessly enjoyable tweeting experience.
review by . December 01, 2009
Twitter is the ultimate instant gratification tool, with real-time updates on news both pressing, incredible and mundane. Sure, for every interesting tweet about a job opportunity or must-see I Can Has Cheezburger video, you’re also going to get less than riveting tweets about your followers’ day-to-day lives. But the connections you will make and the opportunities Twitter provides more than make up for the “John just ate a muffin” updates. And you know, I WANT to know about …

I supposed this is a great site for people who have lots of time on their hands, and tend toward OCD...

Be genuine and real. Unsolicited advice and marketing messages hurt your credibility.

Fun. Time consuming. But fun.

Love Twitter .. made many contacts on this site and posted blogs which people read.

the new business center is a game changer for twitter: it created a customer service platform.

Love it.
review by . June 07, 2009
I've been trying to figure that out for a long time.  Honestly, despite the fact that I give this service a passing grade I'm not entirely sure what the big deal with Twitter is.  It just seemed like a bunch of random talking about their day hoping that someone would care enough to read their comments.  Then journalists started Tweeting, which got me curious because I always pegged Twitter to be something for people who couldn't blog properly.  Well, I have two websites, three …
