Just wondering if there were any other hubbers on Twitter.
OK, I started following you on twitter, because your Hubpages profile looked interesting.
In twitter, my screen of people that I follow immediately filled up with about 2 screenfuls of stuff like

I'm a twitter novice, but Sorry, this looks like some sort of SPAM to me which I don't really want to be subjected to, so I "unfollowed" you.
Can you please explain what this is all about?
Yep here I am! http://twitter.com/waynetully
Do you find it useful to add your little updates?
I do because it helps your friends and family fill in the blanks when you say "I'm busy" or I didn't call you today because I was slammed with work" I do a play by play of my entire day to a point so if my friends get annoyed because I'm not calling or stopping by, I can say go look at my twitter page and you'll see what I did today.. I'm finding alot more patience now as my friends and family are following me throughout the day actually. It is a bit strange to have them call you and you've not talked to someone in 3 days and you want to tell them about such and such article or event and they say "oh I know, I read your page already" lol in some cases it leaves you with nothing to talk about, but I just leave things out of my updates to maintain that fun
In others it's actually caused my friends to call me to get "more details" on such and such... it works both ways. Twitter is giving someone a look into (at your own control) your life. If someone uses anything you say on there against you you can block them from future "following" by person and even can make it so only your friends (not the general public) can see you but if you block them you also cannot follow them! I like Twitter for all those reasons but also because It keeps me focused, I feel sometimes if I have nothing to report that I'm doing I'm not doing enough (being lazy) so its actually kept me working more... I could go on and on...
What the heck is twitter? Guess I'll follow the link and find out.
After a year or so being there I still can't figure this out I guess Chantel can enlighten us
Would that you had made that a formal request, Shirley, but anyway, here 'tis:

I'm on Twitter as inspirepub ... http://twitter.com/inspirepub I guess.
Following Gary Vaynerchuck...the wine guy!
I just joined today because I read about it in PC World magazine.
They've moved the Follow button since I last logged in.
Found it now.
Well, I've just joined, but so far I've no idea why!
Oh, now it makes sense.
I was wondering why you suddenly wrote a Hub on Twitter.
I should have read the forums first!
Great! I'm following everyone who posted their info. Anyone else?
Okay.... I'm in too:-) I also will follow those who post in this thread and share their info. Sounds kinda fun!
Ah, Jenny. I hadn't been back here before I read the 'Twitter' hub. I thought it was a pretty funky coincidence. You're right, I should have made it a request, whoops.
You did a great job by the way. Thank-you so much. I understand now what it is, I just don't understand why anybody wants it. But then, I know a lot of people who don't understand why I prefer reading to watching television, so I guess that's fair.
Anyway, thx again for explaining it to us.
OK, I've added all you twitterers to my account, which has sat pretty well unused for about a year.
Going to follow all hubbers on this thread !!
I haven't done much on Twitter yet but I am signed up
I don't Tweet all that much, but here ya go!
A couple of good Twitter tools are Twit Deck and TwitThat! TwitThat allows you to twit from your browser.
I also like twimbler.com, which allows all twimblers to see what you are twitting about.
Everyone that posted their Twitter addie I've added you- and I'm finally learning Twitter, lol!!
Would love to Have My Hubbin Friends contact me on Twitter....http://twitter.com/josephdiego
Anybody looking for some twitter tips contact me.....
Friends just remember, when you twit, here is a twit-tip..Do not just start making everybody your friend. Quality is more important than quantity.. Stick to Hubbers and other people you might know...
This is true, this is not myspace and remember this is your private private life your twitting about...
Thanks Jerrico for the tips as I will check it out and lt you know what I think
The more people you twit with, the more likely you are to meet a few people who will visit your hubs and sign up to write their own. Personally I do not twitter about anything personal, I treat it the same as Hubpages.
If you only twit links and nothing personal people will lose intrest in following you.. the whole idea of twitter is to get a glimpse into your life not your marketing... its a yin yang thing... don't be all yang.. give some yin even if it's just to say I'm writing my hub now.... learning about__X... etc.. if you twit while building the hub you build intrest... its not just hey look at my hub, it's the build up... they get more and more curious about the hub as you give them a glimpse into your world of building it!
Sorry, but I think you have me pegged wrong. A few of us hubbers have only shared a few links, and we have every right to do this. If anyone is bothered by my twittering they do not have to follow me. Sorry, but you are way off on this one. However, since I am not using twitter for just marketing I feel no need to even discuss this. Way to jump to a conclusion by the way.
I just signed up but haven't a clue what twitter is lol.....jimmy
Here is mine. I use it for a whole bunch of things so you never know what will come up.

I recieved an email from someone at Twitter , is this a highly recommended place? Pros and Cons:)
HubPages provides a more secure and safe publishing environment!
As with any social network that continues to grow (especially one that focuses on broadcasting messages to the masses), it opens itself up to the prospect of abuse, harassment, spam, and other types of typical Terms of Service violations. Considering the social network-sphere as it exists today, most people would assume that Twitter would be prepared to react and take action against TOS violations -
I have abandoned my account at Twitter because anyone can use Twitter to consistently harass and muddy your identity and... Twitter won’t execute any means of community management. I was fortunate to have escaped the experience!
Craig, Thanks for the advise I will steer clear:)
Craig is wrong, and he has made you "steer clear" of a very useful tool, but this is the power of opinionated ranting...
I think I agree with you Jerrico - i have just started using twitter properly and its a bit of an eye-opener. Their interface is crap though the application Eric recommends above is very,very cool.
Craig - it would helpful if you would post something a bit more specific - what is exactly the problem? Even I have found that you can block people if you want to - but to be honest if you are twitting your every movement and address and your phone no - well really ! Twitter is like everything else on the net - buyer beware and don't check your brain at the door!
BTW you are hubbing about SEO and web 2.0 - how can you avoid twitter with that set of interests?
Yea I'm seeing that, but I think people should also twit about other things than just links, people like the links and hubs but they also want more than "marketing"... I'm getting comfortable with twitter, using it a bit less now because I'm busy lately but it definately has potential..
you do know they have a "block my updates" feature that allows you to block one or all publick access as well as blocking individuals only right?
Me, me, me! I'll follow all you guys back!
Twitter, among other things, is a great place to simply post links to your hubs or blog postings.
I've been playing with Twitter a bit, and can see a lot of benefits with it.
A better interface, Twhirl, is available from www.twhirl.org
It makes twitter much more usable,
I am liking that twhirl interface Eric - yes it is much more useable - well now that I turned off the "ding" notification which made me jump!
I like twimbler.com. Go to their site and they will show you how to post links on twitter, which show up on their blog for the world to see. Hint: I got a little tiny bit of traffic from this, it is worth looking into. No special software to download either.
This is intereresting SweetiePie - when I twit the #log thing to post to the microblog - does that also broadcast to my followers - I want to fill the micorblog up with my self-promotional stuff but not annoy my 2.5 followers LOL
I do not see why it would annoy anyone when others are putting many more links on there quite often. I only use it a few times a day, so it does not bother me. I feel I use it the correct way. However yes, posting anything to twitter using #log:url and description will send it to your followers, and anyone viewing twimbler. However, conversely, I feel anyone posting any links on twitter doing the same thing, but only for a smaller audience. I think it is great, I will keep using it. Twimlbler is in beta encouraging people to post links to their site, so what is wrong with it, as long as it is not abused. I investigate things very thoroughly and I am overly careful about this kind of thing.
Thats logical - and after all its yet another backlink -works for me!
I found a blog about twimbler.com. This person had some interesting things to say about it:
http://www.killerstartups.com/Blogging- … th-twitter
Hi ya'll I use twitter
hope you'll follow me and i will follow back!
Twitter is cool! if you don't know anything about a certain topic you can post a question on twitter and find answers there. if you feel annoyed by the updates of the others, then just unfollow them..
I signed up a long time ago and have never really got into Twitter, but I'm trying to start using it a bit more: http://twitter.com/prairiekerry
My problem with it is the same problem I have with a lot of things, though - I have too many interests and always feel like the gardening people are bored by the political stuff and the political people are bored by the fandom stuff and the fandom people are bored by the real life stuff and on and on ad infinitum. I don't intend to use Twitter for personal stuff, or any fandom stuff that's not 100% on the up-and-up, but it's still awkward. I gotta get myself more of a niche.
I do not think anyone here is using twitter for fandom. We are just sharing. However, it never hurts to make new friends and talk to people on twitter, it has its purposes. By the way, during the election Barack Obama and other candidates were using twitter to update people on their campaign. Many businesses are also beginning to use twitter to promote themselves, so if they can it shows it is perfectly fine. They just do not send out millions of links, but if you use it the correct way it works well.
