    It's part of going "paperless" in our district. Our superintendent is extremely into Twitter and social networking in general. Our district has a Facebook page for announcements and events, and he uses Twitter to send us messages and updates on what's going on -- more or less to replace e-mail.

    Twitter is just a page of status updates more or less. Messages can only be a certain number of characters. I don't even know how to send a Twitter message yet. [​IMG] I have Facebook and that's enough for me. How many things online should I have to check daily? It adds up after awhile.

    It's like status updates. You can add links but the whole thing can only be 180 characters, i think???? I have found fellow chicken friens, the chicken whisper and other stuff. They send out info and such

    I am on it. You can also follow certain celeberties you like and it can keep you busy. I am Dkresy, I usually don't post any just follow. Just go to twitter.com and sign up.

    I was, but somebody was doing updates every few minutes, one or two real, others were adverts. what a pain. I dropped them and it reduced a lot....be careful who you "follow", especially if you get updates on your phone. (they must work for AT&T or something...)
