There is a new site that i came across (here) that sets new standards for social networking... Its called twitter .
What is it?
Twitter is a community of friends and strangers from around the world sending updates about moments in their lives. Friends near or far can use Twitter to remain somewhat close while far away. Curious people can make friends. Bloggers can use it as a mini-blogging tool. Developers can use the API to make Twitter tools of their own. Possibilities are endless!
Its a social networking service or a micro-blogging service that allows users to post their thoughts in a few words ... It can also be used to post their current status as in "what are you doing now??"........
Plus its pretty accessible ... that is from web, phone or messenger... Now thats pretty cool :)....
You can make new friends ... Well some of my friends will love this site .. ;)
Things twitter can be used for??
- Bloggers or webmaster can use it as a social book marking tool to increase their traffic..
- More artistic type of bloggers can use it post some random thoughts..
- Nice site to make some friends...
- Developers can use twitter API to develop tools for their site or a blog.
- Its an alternative for scrapbook on orkut ... :D
- Tell the world "what are you doing now??"
