Do you have Twitter?
Do you have Facebook too?
Do any of you out there tweet, and facebook and blog?
Give me some pointers here.
You see, curiosity got the better of me and I set up a Twitter account just to see what it's all about. But not only am I confused about the ins and outs and how-tos and what-the-hecks?? But I can't figure out if I really want/need/should/could maintain all 3 platforms for sharing my personal life with the world. hahaha.
So, for those of you that do tweet: why do you do it? Would you typically post different things as tweets than you would FB status updates? Are they any different? I know some people use twitter and then have it automatically imported into FB as status updates, so you're kind of, uh, hitting 2 birds with one stone (ahem, pardon the pun). Are there any reasons why you would prefer FB over Twitter or vice versa?
And then, someone please give me a basic twitter tutorial. Oh yes, I've googled it and tried to figure it out - but if you had to explain it very quickly and concisely to a mostly tech-unsavvy gal such as myself, what would you say? Retweets, hashtags . . . I don't even know what else it is that I don't know about. Help me, someone please!
And then . . . there's always the option of maybe just blogging everything and just reposting it in FB and/or twitter and let this be my primary virtual-world home. The place where I can invite you in to sit on my virtual couch (wait, let me move that so there's more room . . . just ignore the mess) and we can sit together and eat yummy treats and chat about all the things going on in our lives, etc. Or, you know, maybe I'd be the one doing most of the talking. But this is the place where you would all be welcome and we could all be friends and give hugs and support and watch each other's kids. Wait. No.
At any rate, I'm just trying to figure this out. I'd love to hear any advice, tips, suggestions, warnings, chastisements, complaints, whatever you've got, I'll take it.
Ready, set . . . go!
(and I promise I will try to refrain from making stupid bird jokes . . .)
(oh and ps - if you know me, you can find me in twitter with my full name and middle initial. If you feel so inclined. Even though I haven't tweeted anything yet because I don't know what I'm doing there.;) And if you don't know me, well sorry. Maybe if I set up a twitter someday that doesn't have my full name visible, then you can "follow me" and we can be fellow tweeters. Or whatever. Ok. Until then . . . )
