THIS explains Twitter.

I knew I needed to learn more when E asked me what Twitter is. I've had some of you "gentle readers" tell me that they, too, Twitter, and invite me to follow them.

So, intrigued, I had figured out part of it. I knew that people can write short status reports and send them off to fans who sign up to receive them. I wasn't sure where I, as a potential fan, would go to in order to receive them (do them come to my e-mail, my Facebook, my blog, the poster's blog?). I think some people "Twitter" from their cell phones, but hey, I've yet to download music onto my combination cell phone/MP3 player, never mind access the internet and e-mail like my daughter can, and does. I like the short status comments on Facebook, hmmm, this has appeal. Maybe.

Then, yeah, this woman wrote fairly clear and detailed information on what Twitter is, and how to sign up. Wow. Even if, yes, its intention is for people who wish to follow Worlds. The World-level competition for Irish stepdancing will be held this April 5-12, 2009, in Philadelphia. Hey, you can now sign up for Twitter alerts:)

I just, maybe, gosh do I need something else, might, too.

So, stop on by, congratulate her on her pregnancy, and check it out.


  1. I hear people talking about Twitter, even Letterman twitters; however, I've never twittered. I feel so left out.

  2. I'd say, everyone twitters for different reasons. I'm not even sure where I fit into that mix to be honest. I know I've tweeted over 1000 times, but who the heck knows about what.
    So glad to see you post and hey tweet me @rebeccahaswrote :o)

  3. I'm on twitter, but I hardly ever tweet or read others tweets. It just makes me think of a big chat room, or a room full of day traders screaming to get your attention.

    I actually wrote a post about how Twitter is bad for you...

  4. Hi. I found you through Sugar's blog. I have been on Twitter since November 2008. I am going to start a blog on Twitter soon, so if you are interested in learning more about it, whether you are a beginner or have been doing it for several months or longer, please email me at Just put in the subject line "i'm interested in doing twitter" If you do that, I'll make sure I will let you know when I start the blog so you can be part of the beginning group. We will all start this thing called Twitter, learn more about it together. It doesn't matter at what stage you're at, perhaps there's something you can learn. Just email me! In the body of the email you put your name, and perhaps a little about yourself and what you'd like to learn, but that's only if you'd like to! If you'd like to see me on twitter, my URL is or you can reach me at @iamkrissy
