@JUNGLEREDS: Much as some of us might like to, it's hard to ignore Twitter. After all, it's fueled more than a few middle eastern revolutions, brought politicians to their knees, and exposed Hollywood luminaries.
So, using 140 characters or less, and using your Twitter handles (if you've got 'em), do you tweet? Do you see a point? And is it a love-hate relationship? Or nothing but #fun?
@LUCYBURDETTE: (AKA ROBERTA) I'm new at this and I can tell I don't have the hang yet--following too many people and not enough of my own tweethearts
@Janbrogan Def. love-hate. Sometimes fun, but value is ? Is entire world a social media expert? Think so. #amwriting They'll clog your box.
@hank_phillippi Agree, love-hate. But seems like a one-way street. Kind of fun to do, but impossible to respond. Because--how?
@hank_phillippi And, scary, too, b/c 140 used to seem short. Now, it's plenty of room. Above love-hate "tweet" is only 110.
@jspencerfleming I'll step out and boldly declare I love Twitter. I'm a short 'n snappy kind of gal. What I want to know: @hank_phillippi - 15,000 followers?
@rosemaryharris1 tweethearts...I love it! It's fun..I post about movies, sports, moi but never check twitter on my phone and haven't sent from phone.
@deborahcrombie Just getting feet wet. Need tweet-torial.
@lucyburdette--(Roberta) Julia, tell us what you love! (Deb, tweet-torial coming later this week:)
HALLIE: Tweetless. Says me today. Tomorrow? Not sayin yes, not sayin no. Livin in the present. Have I exceeded 140 yet?
@deborahcrombie Said the same as Hallie. Have now joined #darkside.
@jspencerfleming Despite the 140-character limit, I feel Twitter is more authentically "my voice" than FB, where I'm in professional mode.
@jspencerfleming In other words, Twitter is like hanging out with friends old and new at a conference. Our blog is #writing - which makes it more like work!
@jspencerfleming And remember: SocMed expert Paul Hochman, who was our guest http://bit.ly/dOK2fV, said the Holy Trinity was Twitter, FB and Youtube.
@rhysbowen Julia is cheating. Doing multiple tweets. So I'll cheat too.
@rhysbowen: I tweet. Still haven't discover full power of being a tweet-magnate.
Want 90,000 followers like Sarah Weinman
HALLIE: If I tweeted when would I have time for Farmville?
@LucyBurdette Too funny, Hallie! tips and picks Jungle Red Readers?
