Then call me a Twit if you must!

A few days after I discovered plurking, I joined Twitter. I don't know if most of you guys reading my blog are familiar already with Twitter since it started earlier than Plurk. So for those who are not familiar with the service, then here's what's it all about:

Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?

Here's how my twitter updates look like:

It's just than plain and simple, I just write what I am doing at the moment. By doing so I let friends who follow me know what I am doing in real time. What's good about Twitter is that you can also send updates thru SMS. This is an advantage for those who are in the US or UK because sending updates to Twitter makes you use an international mobile number. For Philippine mobile users, that means Php 15 per update. Receiving updates is a different side of the story because it's absolutely free (tried and tested it today). For me to be able to send updates to my Twitter account (and even to my Plurk account), I registered my number to the PhTwitter service that makes me send updates for the price of local sms. I still had to activate my mobile phone by sending a one-time sms to the international gateway though.

Posting updates on Twitter is, for me, sort of making a mini-blog everyday. My updates capture my spur-of-the-moment thoughts not like when I blog because I tend to organize my thoughts first before typing away. Besides it's more convenient to be updating on the move. Check it out and hope you enjoy it as well as I do.

Oh, and don't forget to follow me!
