Seasons of Love

"All's over, then; does truth sound bitter / As one at first believes? / Hark, 'tis the sparrows' good-night twitter / About your cottage eaves!" Robert Browning


There are trees but where are the birds? We don't hear them chirp? We don't hear them tweet? Guess who is tweeting? Human beings are now the ones tweeting, err twitting. So this is my lame attempt to help those who haven't:

Let's start with the "Basics of Twitting":

Where to sign up: Twitter.com

Terminology Schminologies:

o Replies - your answer to users you don't necessarily follow but acknowledged by a @username of the person you are replying to
o DMs - Direct message - is by its term directed to one single person
o Follows - interesting people who may or may not know you
o Retweets - to share a tweet of someone and is denoted by an RT at the start to ensure that you acknowledge the source of the tweet
o Tweetups - twitter user meet ups. People schedule a short tweet up for areas they plan to visit, hoping fellow twitters from that area show up
o Hashtags - to be used as search strings and denote a topic/subject

Shortening URLs - long links? more than 160 characters, no problem, shorten it with these:

o bit.ly - my favorite since you can track the number of clicks
o tinyurl - I used to use this...even from 3 years ago in this blog.
o ow.ly - 4 letter urls are the shortest one can go...so this is shorter than a bitly and with stats too
o tr.im - the most creative at least in choosing the best URL to use for the service
o is.gd - they're all the same, this is descriptive, if you link it, it must be good...is good, is gd, get it?

Searching Posts - there is no Google for tweets - well, none yet. Wait for wave.google.com

o search.twitter.com - til wave, you can use these 3
o Tweetscan
o Tweefind


Other things to know, such as influencers, breaking news or mobile apps like Tweetie, Twitterberry, maybe next post. In the meantime, I have to tweet this blog entry :) - and you there should give up Plurk and go back to Twitter :)

*******

Microblogging Wannabees?

Ok ok, to be fair to others, just like Plurk, there were those who battled it out with Twitter. Sadly, you can't join Pownce since its death last December 2008.

If Twitter is a rock party, these are the ones you can join if you want to check out a eulogy... Microblogging sites such as: Jaiku, Identi.ca, Kwippy and Yammer.

These competitors don't have it, most of which haven't grown exponentially compared to Twitter...guess why?

P-Diddy is not there :)

********

Facebook Status Update is Enough for You, Think Again

But if you love Facebook, and you only want to change your Facebook status and auto change your Twitter too...you can use, Facebook's Twitter app or Facebook Connect and a third party, such as TweetDeck, a desktop client for Mac users like me such as Twittie, or for browser-free twitting and Facebooking Seesmic Desktop.

Or you can Nambu.

Confused, where to start? Pick up the phone and call your mom. She's the only one who cares how you are, and what you are doing...promise.
