Mastering Twitter

On Twitter, users post updates known as tweets on the service's website, or reply to or re-post (retweet) other people's tweets.

Twitter also allows you to follow your favorite celebrities and read their updates as soon as they are posted. It is like constantly following them celebrities without being accused of being a stalker.

And there's more. I have discovered that a combination of applications actually allows you to post updates via text to Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo Messenger and even your blogs.

Finally, if you are using, you can add this code to your blogs to show your Twitter updates.

Try all these and experience mobile blogging in the truest sense. And, in case you are interested, feel free to follow me (gelumantao) on Twitter. I would be glad to follow you too.
