For those of you who don’t know what twitter is – it’s a micro-blogging platform. Whereas with a blog you post fewer, but longer articles, on Twitter you post a lot more frequent (and vastly smaller) ideas, thoughts, and ramblings throughout the day. Each “post” in twitter is called a “tweet”. Cute eh?
In any event, just like you can subscribe to blog updates, you can “follow” someone on twitter. They even have tools where you can get TXT updates sent to your mobile phone (only recommended if you pay for unlimited TXT messaging).
In any event, while there are lots of “older” twitter users, Twitter really has a vast youth crowd, so this really helps me expand my reach out to a younger audience. If you’ve followed me very long, you’ll know that I’m constantly looking for ways to expand my reach and touch more lives.
But more importantly, because with a blog I feel that more than two posts a day is simply too much (please let me know if you disagree), I end up NOT talking about so many things. I only end up picking those few items I really feel necessary to explore more fully. But Twitter enables me to share thoughts on all those smaller, less “robust”, but often just as meaningful things throughout the day.
In any event, if you’re interested in following me on twitter – simply click here: http://twitter.com/rustysblog.
Of course, you can also subscribe to an RSS feed to read all tweets in your favorite RSS reader.
What’s more, I’ve built a page (here) where we can discuss any particular tweet you would like to comment on. Simply type the tweet into your comment followed by any remarks you’d like to add. That way we know which tweet you’re talking about.
Either way, this’ll be fun.
