New to Twitter? Download Twitteroid - Mastering Twitter in 10 minutes or less.


twitter-wallpaper Twitter is all the rage these days. Just like Facebook was before that, Myspace I believe still is. Or maybe I've just gotten the hang of it these past few days, but Twitter be cool - and I am addicted!

While its easier to figure out Facebook and Myspace; Twitter is a whole new concept. To put it simply, Twitter is a social networking and microblogging service that asks "What are you doing?" and expects you to answer in 140 characters or less. Apart from that, Twitter is whatever you make it.

I found Twitteroid at Terry Whalin's website. It doesn't delve into the deeper uses of Twitter. It simply tells you how to set up your account and how to use it sensibly. It covers everything one will come across while using Twitter. Setting up an account, public timeline, twittering through instant messaging services and mobile phones, changing profile background image or colors etc are systematically explained.

Twitteroid is a good, practical read if you're afraid of jumping into a new service that will take time away from your work. Of course if you're Internet savvy, it'll take you about 5 minutes to figure out twitter.

I use twitter in the most basic way. Simple updates with some links thrown in every now and then. I reply to other people's tweets if I find I have some thing to add and DM (direct message) some times.

Beware: Twitter is highly addictive once you get the hang of it.

Do you Twitter? Follow me @samarowais. I'd love to hear from you! How fast did you catch the Twitter bug? Did you get addicted immediately or did it take you time?
