Twitter? Tweets?

New Phenomenon?

No i am not saying treats whilest trying to sound cute, but Tweets its some new fad or whatever that happens to be appearing wherever i go in the internet. It is apparently some sort of instant messaging using something called twitter between Celebreties and us normal? people. It lets them update and msg us on what they ate are doing did are thinking or whatever..

The Wikipedia defintion for Twitter:

"Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users' updates (known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.
Updates are displayed on the user's profile page and delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends (delivery to everyone being the default). Users can receive updates via the Twitter website,
SMS, RSS, or through applications such as TwitterMobile, Tweetie, Twinkle, Twitterrific, Feedalizr, Facebook, and Twidget, a widget application. Four gateway numbers are currently available for SMS: short codes for the United States, Canada, and India, and a United Kingdom-based number for international use. Several third parties offer posting and receiving updates via email. Estimates of the number of daily users vary as the company does not release the number of active accounts. In November 2008, Jeremiah Owyang of Forrester Research estimated that Twitter had 4-5 million users.[2] A Bloomberg article in February 2009 stated the number to be 55 million daily users.[3]
Twitter messages may be tagged using hashtags, a word or phrase prefixed with a #, such as #beer"

The defintion i got from was "Stars are just like us — they Twitter, too! From Britney Spears to Arnold Schwarzenegger, celebs are using the micro-messaging tool to spread the word about everything from the food they eat to the parties they attend. A look at some of the top personalities you can follow on Twitter."
