After my previous post on not “getting” Twitter, I’ve spent a fair bit of time getting to grips with it and have been sucked in to a considerable extent.
I’ll post more about my road-to-Damascus Twitter conversion in the next couple of days, but in the meantime I’d refer any interested readers to this video, “Twitter in Plain English”:
What I’d say about it though is that it focuses unduly on the “social” aspects of Twitter, e.g. using it to stay in touch with your real life friends and family. I don’t think that tells the whole picture, however… and I’ll explain why later!
