Twitter is another way of keeping in touch, but only briefly.

Tweet Tweet

There are a number of social networking sites, and people join them for one reason or another. I joined FACEBOOK because I am an avid follower of Gareth Gates and Lewis Hamilton, and I can see at a glance, all their latest news and updates, and also chat with other fans.

Then a while ago, along came TWITTER. I also belong to writing sites, and TRIOND always post the links to my new articles as soon as they are published, on TWITTER, for my followers to read , and this has worked well for me, as it has gained me more followers, and in return, I also follow other writers too. We all have busy lives, and TWITTER allows you to update your friends in a few words, and is fine for people who don’t have time to write proper blogs, it’s just like a brief text message to your phone

But this is the Bad Part

That is the good part of it, but the bad part of it is that I really don’t understand how to post myself, and how to read posts that have been sent to other people on there, and I rely on my good friends to fill me in. I know that if you type the name of the person in the box that you want to TWEET to, it should work, but then when you go onto their profile, sometimes it shows another name in there as well, so does that mean it will go to both of them?

I don’t spend much time on TWITTER, and I rarely send messages to my friends, but I do like to read the tweets from Gareth Gates. I am just one amongst many fans he has on TWITTER, and I am guilty of not tweeting to him very often, but then I am more interested in what he is doing, he is the star. I just hope one day it will click with me, until then thanks to my friends who are helping me, you know who you are.

I am a Facebook fan also. Twitter and MySpace have not been any help at all with my writing. I get spam and people friend requests that lead me to pornography. Facebook is the only one I use and I am cautious about what personal info I post. Good article and warnnings.

I use both Facebook and Twitter daily. Of the two I prefer Twitter. Many of the sites that I write for are active on both Facebook and Twitter and I gain friends and followers almost daily.

Carol, I don't know if you're signed up with Twaitter, but that will save you a lot of time posting as it is automatic and recurring.

I use Twitter and Facebook to try to promote our writing. When it comes to the social aspects I use Facebook a lot more simply because it is the one which my friends all use
