Twitter is a system that keeps track of what you are doing and shares it with others. It has been updated and there are added features such as you can place a Twitter Badge on MySpace or blog, let web updates go out to other people’s mobile phones, send messages from the web to individual friends, upload a profile pictires and link to a home page. It also features invite other friends by email or phone number and AIM feature in Beta which works with Jabber, Google’s Gtalk.
For example, I can see that my friend Sarah “just finished another superb episode of Battlestar Gallactica about one hour ago”. I wonder if she felt the same way I did about tonight’s episode… I’m just glad they are off of New Caprica even though I thought those were some good episodes… get the drift ?
That is essentially what Twitter lets you do. If you are a complete exhibitionist you can even share your posts with everybody. I’m not a big cell phone guy (have one but phones in general annoy me) but Twitter would be one reason that I might use my phone more often as you can send and receive Twitter updates via phone if so inclined.
