It usually gets used frivolously I have tried one or two serious things.

I dont really get the followers or following thing . It usually seems to be used for people advertising themsleves.

Yes, use it all the time and absolutely love it! India Knight describes it as being at a fascinating cocktail party where you can hear all sorts of conversations and join in with people.

I have a Twitter account in my MN name as well as one in my RL name for work. Have had lots of laughs as @MrsKwazii with MNers and others, and made loads of good connections with RL one too. Easier to keep them seperate for me.

What did you think of it?

I got into it when I was on mat leave with DD2. I chat to loads of people on there - mostly normal people not celebrities, though I do follow one or two who have interesting things to say such as Graham Linehan.

It does take a while to build up a crowd of people who you are interested in hearing from, but I really enjoy it. It's far far more interesting than Facebook.

yes I love twitter for all sorts of reasons..

follow me @clairerandall if you wish...

The more people you follow, the more of a conversation you can have and the more connections you make. Gransnet has a v good twitter guide but the best thing to do is just dive in. I think you have with MmeLindor before, right?

mrsKwazil I used to find it a good discipline having to write something in 140 characters. It is easily possible when you get the knack

I never quiete got the idea of how you respond to people with the @ the dalilama bit

Yes, I use it for work (brand awareness and other such nonsense) and stalking following some rather buff celebs

I seem to be off at the moment because they keep telling me to sign on again under the new system And I dont get how you do it. Like a lot of other people I was on twitter under my own name.

Judysjudgement. I think I have missed a trick in just doing it for posting views and jokes. I shall do it different next time.
