So my colleague Joshua and I today dived into this Twitter thing that's been buzzing around the blogosphere for weeks. Here's my page, and Joshua's is here. He wrote a yarn on the subject which was slated to run in tomorrow's paper (Friday).
So what is it? Think instant messaging meets blog, meets SMS messaging, and stir with large amounts of random bizzare conversations. I went out to lunch with an SMS notification service turned on and kept getting an SMS for each message one of my friends wrote. Let's just say I turned that little service off quickly. I can't decide if it's all just a little bit silly. Whatdya reckon?
Update: Story got held. You get that.
Update2: It got a run on page 3 of the Weekend AFR in case you missed it. Joshua kicked off the piece thus: "A digital stream of consciousness called Twitter has become the online flavour of the month."
