Yeah, I joined Twitter. I figured I should at least check it out. I got in on facebook fairly early on (before my grandparents, at any rate), and I was amazed how cool it was.
Twitter is a privately funded startup with offices in the SoMA neighborhood of San Francisco, CA. Started as a side project in March of 2006, Twitter has grown into a real-time short messaging service that works over multiple networks and devices.
In countries all around the world, people follow the sources most relevant to them and access information via Twitter as it happens—from breaking world news to updates from friends.
I've signed up to follow CNN breaking news, NPR, Time magazine, but passed on Steven Colbert and Martha Stewart.
I'm reserving judgment on Twitter. I'm not even going to tell you what my twitter page is. Check back later and I'll give you my take on other twitterers and maybe even share some choice tweets.
