Twitter?

Okay, one of my favorite singers opened a Twitter account and I followed her link and signed up. So now I have a very vague idea of what Twitter is - it's a site where you type a status and follow people?? So, what does that mean?? What do I actually DO with Twitter? I see so many people blog about Twitter, but I truly don't know how to go about doing anything further than signing up. If you twitter (do I call you a twit?? LOL!), feel free to tell me what the heck I should be doing on that site! :-)

Thanks a bunch!!!!

I've only been reading you for a short time, but I've had a surge of interest in blogs with good recipes lately!

Anyway, think of twitter like a quick and easy blog. Rather than sitting down and writing a whole post, if you do something cool, you just spout a one-liner about it. Most people I know use their phone to text it in from various places.

i.e., "just found an awesome deal on such-and-such at the grocery store" or "waiting for the thing in the oven to be done" or "dinner was great! have to post the recipe later" or "my kid just did the funniest thing"

As you know I have twitter.. but it's like a status update.. kind of lame.. but I guess if you wanted to get the word out about something, that's a fast and easy way to do it. It took me a while to figure it's purpose out too...
