For once I am slightly on the leading edge instead of following the trend. I heard about Twitter* on MacBreak Weekly's MacWorld podcast but I wasn't even remotely interested in it until I saw Iconfactory's Twitterrifc app this morning. Right now I have no friends so I don't know who is doing what (cue sad face), but hopefully some of my invites will sign up and soon we will all be 'twitting' (?).
* Twitter is a social networking web
service that lets you stay in touch with friends, family or even the
public at large thanks to short posts or “tweets” that describe what
you are doing at any given moment. The concept is simple, strangely
addictive and fun through and through. Tell friends, colleagues or
strangers what you are snacking on, your current interests, favorite
websites or just plain goofy nonsense!
