What is Twitter? Twitter is a form of social media like Facebook or MySpace only different. It is a free social messaging and microblogging utility. Your tweets are limited to 140 characters. You can send your own and read others updates, which are called tweets. As a newbie in the social media world I am trying it out. I don't tweet much yet, but I have certainly found a couple of tweeters that provide useful information. So I am inclined to stick with it for awhile. I enjoy Facebook for posting photo's and looking at others photos. Facebook is better for connecting with people you have not seen for a long time and those you have. Twitter seems better for listening to new people with like interests and gathering information. Twitter seems to have a lot of application for business. Please leave your comments and ideas about Twitter and other social networks.
