Twitter

I joined Twitter the other day, something ive been against.

For those of you who dont know Twitter is kind of like the lazy way to stalk people. People put up little updates about themselves like 'im cooking' or whatever.... then you can read them! exciting i know. So its just like the status thing on facebook, except thats what the whole site is.

Ive been against it because to me it seems pointless, but lots of people say its great for internet marketing, and even though im not doing any real marketing per say right now i may in the future so it might be usefu later if i can get alot of 'followers' (stalkers) now.

If you want to follow/stalk me go to www.twitter.com/royblacksail.
Ya, you can tell im not quite yet on the twitter band wagon because i wont even take the time to make it a real link for you. But if i ever see the light so to speak ill make a post thats just my link 100 times to make up for it... i bet you'll all be thrilled about that.

Figures, i was just about to make my first 'tweet' and the site is down.
Lets see some comments about why you think twitter is worth joining.

    I just signed up for Twitter a little over a week ago. It's pretty fun, but it seems to have a lot of technical problems.

    People have been jumping on the "twitter" thing faster than you can say..

    I like Twitter, but it is only a great marketing technique once you have at least a few hundred followers. I've added you to Twitter anyway.

    The real value of Twitter isn't necessarily the marketing aspects (yes, you can have all your blog posts announced through twitfeeder), but through the sharing of information. It ties you in to the world in a way that hasn't been possible before. When earthquakes rocked China, Twitter users learned of it and the results long before mainstream press. That is tremendously powerful.

    There will be many more uses of Twitter coming to light in the next year. Welcome aboard!

    FYI, I added you to my "following" list on Twitter. I've been a member for a while, but just recently got back into "Tweeting". If anyone else would like to add me, I'm "Bcarter" and I try to follow everyone that's following me.
