Twitter is kind of fun. Like a mini blog.
I've been using it for about a month now and it's interesting to see what people are up to.
I've been using the website lately since Twhirl seems to not always want to work. And I don't really like a bunch of apps running on my machine, even if they're small. I tend to run into problems after a while and end up not using them. (a learned behavior?)
I don't plan on getting an iPhone or the like for quite a while but I'd like to be able to get the tweets on my cell phone. I guess I can - I can put in my phone number and it'll send me a text msg.... I'll have to try that.
I guess I have two complaints about Twitter - one is most of the url's are hidden behind a tinyurl link. When I'm at work, I can't get to YouTube or FaceBook, etc. I probably get 'Access Denied' kind of messages on about half the links I try to follow. Tinyurl has the preview link that seems pretty cool but I don't see how to change my settings to use it.
The other thing that bugs me is the 140 character limit. I guess that's the limit on text messages sent via phones (SMS).
There are some things I don't understand yet - what the heck are the # and RT things in the text? The RT ones look like forwarded msgs and the # are infront of TV show names and other stuff.
