I Almost Didn’t Tweet

I’ve been hearing much about Twitter, but kept it on a back burner. Not one more thing to join. One more profile page to fill in. Not one more password to make up.

But the more I heard about twitter, the more I knew I’d have to check this one out.

Finally I decided I might as well save my name. So I grabbed a twitter account, was delighted there was no lengthy profile to fill out. I have some of those already, I can just point to one, better yet, my business page.

Funny thing happened, while I was checking it out how it worked, I just started using it, finding friends, communicating back and forth. No long posts, no more than 140 characters.

  1. Hi Heidi!
    Welcome to the Twitterverse!

    It’s fun and useful for business. DEFINITELY!

    I’m so glad you took the plunge. It really has been one of the easiest social networking formats to learn and “get” — and as you know I’m not techie at ALL. I’ve had fabulous results. I blogged about it recently, too.

    Glad you liked my Ryze post about it!


  2. Heidi,

    It is always a pleasure to see you, hear from you, and connect with you.

    I am so glad that you joined in the Twitter playground!



  3. Sally,
    Thanks, as always happy to connect with you. Some many playgrounds, so little time. Play is good!

    Thanks for helping others understand twitter. I agree, easy and less time consuming.
