Describing Twitter in Plain English


I’m a big fan of Twitter (even though we’ve had our differences in the past – mostly due to my not “getting it”). While my updates may not be as fast, furious or incessant as some of the people whom I follow, I do try to pop on there as often as is feasible without completely kneecapping my productivity at work and home.

Whenever I mention Twitter to my non-techie friends and family, I’m often asked what it is and I can never quite articulate it without making it sound like some über-nerd service that only computer people use. It’s frustrating, because it’s such a fun service (and potential time sink – you’ve been warned, uninitiated readers) and I really wish more people used it.

Fortunately, I found this great video (via Twitter, oddly enough) that does a fantastic job of explaining just what Twitter actually is and why it’s so freakin’ cool.

Oh, and if you haven’t already, I encourage you to sign up, then follow me :)
