What’s All the Twitter About?

Twitter

is beginning to surface in businesses, schools, and your very own public library! What is it and why would you want to use it? Twitter is basic microblogging that allows you to send messages to whoever you want and receive messages any way you want. You can receive messages from your “followers” through your email, facebook, myspace, cell phone (texting charges apply) and through twitter.com.

The trick to twitter is to be able to tell your “followers” your latest breaking news in less than 140 characters. That’s right, 140 characters, not 140 words! Why would your library use it, you may ask? To give you updates on everything from world events and the latest book craze to the upcoming program being held that day!
