Clients are asking me about it, headlines are saying 'twittering' is the next best thing to chocolate, and even people at the local supermarket can be overheard to say 'twitter' somewhere in their conversation.
Truth is -- the site is slow to load (it often says 'twitter is over capacity'), it's hard to follow and annoying because people can and do say just about anything. But, you also find those hidden gems of good advice or you find friends you didn't know were twittering too. What I liked best about twitter, over some of the other social networking sites like myspace or facebook, was that a lot of businesses and business people are using it. Quite a few non-profits can be found there too. What I found most interesting was many of the news outlets have twitter accounts and you can get the latest news.
Will it be the next fad that goes away as quickly as it came? Who knows but you can always send me a tweet or an email and let me know what you think. I can tell you one thing for certain -- twitter is NOT as good as chocolate.
