Twitter in Plain English

By Char

The team at Common Craft are at it again! They have produced another video that explains a technology tool in plain English – this time its Twitter. Twitter is a micro-blogging tool that fills in that gap between email and a blog post and allows you to have short 140 character conversations with your friends and follow the conversations of those who you find interesting.

Funny enough, I came across the video via a tweet from Mike Sansone of Converstations on Twitter. If you are on Twitter, you can follow me, too.

PS – Have you heard about SOBCon08 yet? It is part conference, part business school for bloggers, and will be the blogging event of the year. Check out the list of speakers they have lined up already – you do not want to miss it! I am competing in the SOBCon contest to go to the event for free – click on any of the SOBCon links (or the cool banner on the right) and help me out. You don’t have to do anything fancy, just click.
