Social Networking in 140 Characters or Less
A lot of you may have asked the very same question time of a few of your friends. Despite Twitter’s growing popularity, there are still so many who do not know what it is. Allow me to explain.
Twitter is a free social networking/blogging utility that allows you real-time access to your friends, family and causes. You simply log on and type in what you’re doing. The catch: You must do so in 140 characters or less.
Twitter is simple, free and extremely effective. When one wants to get the word out about a Rally, March or a Protest – send a tweet. That tweet is sent to all of the people who follow you, who may elect to RT – “retweet” your message to their followers.
