That’s it. Just like Friendster 4 years back, I got hooked. And the funny thing is, on both instances, I told myself I’d never EVER use these tools. But I am now!
After much deliberation (with myself no less, o diba kaawayin daw ang sarili? Hehe.) I finally gave in. I created an account, “followed” some friends, downloaded this MadTwitter app from Benj‘s site, plugged the twitter box in my sidebar, and voila! I’m twittin’. I’m officially a twitter. (I get confused. What’s the difference between Twit and Tweet? Is Twit a verb and Tweet a noun? Somebody give me a lesson on Twitting 101 please!)
What’s really cool about this ‘twittin’ is that it partly acts as Instant Messenger, SMS, Friendster and Sideblog all in one! And you only need one app for all that–MadTwitter no less!
It’s also a great tool for posting quick updates on the site, as well as some short messages that don’t merit a blog post. What’s cute is that it’s soooo cute! Little, what I mean. It even converts long URLs into TINYURLs! Who would’ve thought?!
Let’s see how this thing will work for me.
Oh, I have a question. How come some of the people I “follow” can post tweets via their cellphones? Are they texting internationally or just using WAP to access messenger on their cellphones? Enlightenment please!
