Twitter is most certainly popular, but there are plenty of other ways to get your thoughts and actions out for everyone. MySpace and Facebook were among the first to encourage you to post your status or thoughts and Twitter just took it from there. Today Twitter is one of the most up-and-coming social websites out there. Itís great for sharing information, but for most of us, itís just a fun way to comment about ourselves and our friends.

Twitter

Using Twitter is relatively straightforward. You sign up for an account and make a simple post about what youíre doing or thinking. Usually a tweet is about a sentence. There is even a limit to the number of characters you can post at a time. Start reading through other twitter pages from friends or celebrities you like and you can start to follow their twitters all the time.

When you sign into your account, youíll see the latest tweets from the friends youíre following. Itís a nice way to stay in touch and to get a feel for what your friends are up to. You can also get the latest news and information about your favorite bands or celebrities by following their Twitters.

Tweeting

Once you get onboard with Twitter, youíll discover how much fun and how interesting it can be. Make a simple post and comment on the posts of others to start conversations and share your thoughts on what others are saying. Itís the perfect means of conversing with multiple friends at the same time. Years ago there was three-way calling, and today there is tweeting.

If all of your friends are tweeting, you can see comments and reply immediately with comments of your own. Itís like a virtual conversation that doesnít require texting or cell phone minutes. And because itís not as well known as many of the larger social networks, it might still be allowed at your school or workplace allowing you to keep in better contact with friends all the time. If you are blocked, you can still tweet directly from your cell phone in many cases.

Tips for Tweeting

If youíre going to be using Twitter, be sure you use the same cyber safety guidelines you should always be using on social websites. Never use your full name and donít give out any personal information about yourself. Remember, too, that any images you use in your profile picture are visible to anyone who visits the site Ė not just your three best friends who have signed up to follow you.

Many individuals use the same screen names on various social sites. If you do this, bear in mind that a cyber stalker or other individual interested in your exploits can simply follow you from one place to another, putting information together about where you live and how old you are. Be wary of what you post anywhere online, but especially on a rapidly moving site like Twitter that is instantly visible to everyone.

Join! This is the Rescue Forums in the case that the site shuts down.

If the link doesn't work then check to make sure there were no spaces added when it was copy and pasted. I don't know why it adds spaces, but it does. The link should have NO spaces. The most common place to delete a space is in the word 'index' between the D and the E.

There is actually a 'rock'umentary by David Crowder Band that's called 'Twitter Can Kill You'. I suggest you all go take a look at that, get some laughs at least.

Don't see the appeal. Some people take it WAY to far.

My parents have twitter accounts, but that's because my mom is a social butterfly and actually knows very famous singers. I think my dad just joined 'cause she did.

Besides being able to find old friends, I don't see a very large appeal. Though occasionally you do get to hear the most hilarious things. Like someone sneezing on someones starbuck's, or sending a link to pictures where 'Wolverine' auditions to be in the band. (Both have actually happened)

I like twitter. I'm not obsessed with it.

As for the people who follow me are most of my friends and people from school, a few people who've just randomly added me.

I really don't care about the random people but I like to read about what my friends are up to from time to time.

I honestly don't even see the attraction in Twitter.

I don't think anyone would really WANT to hear what I do everyday, it's much too boring.

twitter is a waste of time and energy.

Who really cares what I do every day?

I'm not really interested in Twitter and I can't see how others are obsessed with it. Do you really think everyone cares what you do every day of your life? I post important things through status reports on facebook or myspace but that's once or twice a month.

But I guess if your life is interesting day to day like if you're a rock star or you're a new mommy then it'd be cool. ^^'
