Most of you will already know what Twitter is but for starters its a service that asks you the question "What are you doing?" and we simply have to send our updates via Instant Messaging, Email or even by SMS. Its a micro-blogging service coz the updates cannot exceed 140 characters. So it has to be very short and sweet. The service has been around for sometime but I got kinda addicted to it almost a month back when I saw Bud updating his Twitter using his iPod Touch at the MySQL South East Asia Roadshow 2007. I like this micro-blogging idea even though I have a blog coz I can send in little tweets when I don't want to write a big post about day to day activities. You can follow someone on Twitter so that you can receive updates about this person via the Twitter website, Instant Messaging, Email, RSS or SMS. All these can be configured quite easily. I mainly use GoogleTalk Instant Messaging and SMS for sending updates. SMS updates can be really handy when I'm on the move.
