    Twitter, What is this? How it works?


    What's Twitter?
    Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users' updates known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters, displayed on the user's profile page and delivered to other users who have subscribed to them (known as followers). Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends or, by default, allow anybody to access them. Users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website, Short Message Service (SMS) or external applications. The service is free to use over the Internet, but using SMS may incur phone service provider fees

    Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?
    Offer a variety of communications ways, you can even send private messages to people.


    How does it work?
    With Twitter, you can stay hyper–connected to your friends and always know what they’re doing. Or, you can stop following them any time. You can even set quiet times on Twitter so you’re not interrupted.

    Twitter puts you in control and becomes a modern antidote to information overload.

    Why?
    Because even basic updates are meaningful to family members, friends, or colleagues—especially when they’re timely.

    * Eating soup? Research shows that moms want to know.
    * Running late to a meeting? Your co–workers might find that useful.
    * Partying? Your friends may want to join you.

    Twitter can be used via Desktop applications, widgets, phone applications and on twitter web page.

    These are the most used free twitter applications for Blackberry Devices:
    UberTwitter: exclusively for Blackberry Devices.
    TinyTwitter ANY Java enabled phone
    TwitterBerry TwitterBerry is mobile client for posting updates to Twitter. It works over the data network.




    If you want a twitter application for your pc, TweetDeck is the one, integrates twitter and facebook in one simple application, and you get the updates in real time, still in beta.

    You are only able to load UbberTwitter, TinyTwitter or TwitterBerry as they are blackberry specific. And you have to actually do it from your blackberry browser, not computer. Good luck

    tuck fwitter....i'll never use it. totally pointless. it's got less characters than a SMS message!!!

    when twitter unlocks GPS, enables the hidden wi-fi and allows EMS then i'll think about it.
