Today I am changing my post up a bit . . . I thought it would be fun to give definition to what Twitter is. Personally I do not use Twitter, but more and more people or doing so. I looked Twitter up on Wikipedia . . . a free internet encyclopedia and this is basically what it said:

  • twitter is a social network
  • twitter is a mini blog
  • tweets are text based mmessages of 140 characters or less
  • on twitter you have a circle of friends or can choose open access
  • friends are known as peeps
  • twitter was created in 2006
  • twitter is the 3rd most social network
  • 6 million unique monthly visitors
  • 55 million visitors
  • 40% of twitter messages are constituted as pointless babble

So, there you have it . . . I only have one question that I didn't see addressed on Wikipedia . . . If a message is a tweet then what is the person called? A tweeter or a TWIT?

Hmmmm we may never know!

I have a Twitter account - I've had it for well over a year and before it hit big. I am just WAY to wordy to enjoy Twitter.
