Thing 19: Twitter

I chose to research Twitter, ranked #1 under social networking tools on the Web 2.0 awards.

Twitter works by connecting people with their friends, family, and co-workers. You receive updates on what they are doing. These updates (known as status updates on facebook) can be sent to your phone, email, or web page. They help you to feel connected to people you care about by knowing what they are doing.

A great feature of this application is that it allows the user to control when, where, and how to receive updates. It also allows you to "block out" times when you don't want to receive updates- dinner, bed time, etc.
