Ok, to be honest, I’m not sure I get twitter. Jason keeps telling me I should sign up but I’m not sure I’m on board yet.

What do y’all think? Should I ‘tweet’?

Do you tweet?

    yes, i tweet, but if you blog as much as you do, there’s no reason to tweet.

    I have twitter but I must say I don’t really see the point…for me it’s just another thing to update (although mine updates my facebook at the same time so really I’m not updating an additional thing) but I don’t really see the point in reading other people’s tweets if they are all going to be the same as their facebook status! I feel like a traitor to my generation for not understanding…but I do think the little bird is cute.

    I don’t get it. I just think it’s just another “thing” to do.

    I tweet daily, hourly, every few minutes. šŸ™‚ I do FB too but not as often or much as twitter. I have Twitterfox so it’s open whenever Firefox is open and I see updates. It’s been great for networking of the biz. I think it’s fun.

    I tweet. There are some advantages to it; I follow the city of RR to get updates on what’s going on around me, and Sew, Mama, Sew! tweets giveaways (run by other people) that aren’t on the blog. For the most part, it seems like it’s Facebook status updates for 1) people who weren’t in college like we were when Facebook started, and 2) businesses. I don’t know how much longer I’ll continue, since I usually give the same updates on Facebook and Twitter at the same time, but I haven’t been able to give it up quite yet.

    You can get Twitter and link it to your facebook so everytime you want to update your status on facebook it tweets your update too, if that makes sense. LOL

    I just do it that way and it updates both at the same time! =)

    i think it might be too much work for me. i’m chillin’ with my two kids most of the time, and i think that could get a little bit boring to read all the time on twitter…. but you do a lot of cool things! (cooking, etc!)

    I guess some of the benefits of twitter is people can follow you and you don’t have to be ‘friends’, you can follow entites, like cities and churches and such, I could update saying when I’ve modified my free seeing pattern list or things to do in Austin list (since I normally don’t blog about those updates)… And once I have an etsy shop I could tweet about new items I’ve added… I’m not sure that I would want to link facebook and Twitter since I think I would use them differently… Still not sure I’m going to jump on board…

      Twitter is so very useful for different reasons:
      1. If there is an event involving a lot of people and meetings,
      you can create a private twitter account to update them on
      the status of that project, meeting times and places,
      assignments, tips, directions, etc. keeping them all informed
      at once (so you don’t have to make 100 calls, just as many updates
      as are needed to get the info across).
      2. If you want to keep in touch with friends with a little more
      info then what facebook gives you (or even a little less) it
      gives you a way to know what they’re up to without having to ask.
      3. It’s genuinely fun to read things that people say. A lot of the time,
      people don’t only use the “tweets” to say what they are up to, but
      to say how they feel or say a quotes that’s encouraging, share a joke,
      say something witty, etc. Fun things. =]
      4. It helps you get what you need to say out there. And if you want to share more personal information, you can make your “tweets” private (so you don’t have to censor what you say if it’s something sensitive).
      5. You can attach photos to your “tweets” from your phone or computer, really keeping people connected. Being able to keep people in touch with you from anywhere!

      It really does get addicting once you get into the swing of it and follow people who are interesting. =]

      Hope that helps!
