  1. Great post & thanks for the shout out in your hints & tips section!

    Another tool or Twitter user interface site is Tweetworks (http://www.tweetworks.com ) which allows users to have threaded conversations in groups similar to chatrooms. Best of all it forwards your tweets from Tweetworks into the much larger stream of conversations going on with Twitter. It’s an easy way for someone to ease into Twitter while wading in shallower waters.

    I think it’s important to realize Twitter is still a relatively little used tool compared to the number of users on Facebook. If Twitter starts getting that kind of mass adoption of users, great guides like this one will be invaluable to new users understanding, getting started and up to speed as quickly as possible. Cheers!

  2. Twitter has always been a strange presense for me… as a brandname, it’s very strong in my mind. Except I don’t think I’ve EVER been on! I’m sure if I ever made an account, my perspective on it would change, but for now.. it just seems like one of these web 2.0 sites that will come and go because it lacks the real meat to continue, and is more about the medium term novelty.

    Its this that really puts me off joining, because I wonder whats the point if they’ll be another next big thing in half a year? Besides, none of my friends use it at the moment. I don’t think it’s caught on so well in the UK yet.
