I’ve heard a lot about Twitter, but have never checked it out. But, I’ve finally decided to make the jump and see what it’s all about. Basically, it’s just a way to stay connected with people in “real-time” as they say! Here’s what Wikepedia has to say about it:
Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service. It enables its users to send and read other users’ updates (known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length. Updates are displayed on the user’s profile page and delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them.
(I had to look up the description because I really didn’t understand it! Lol!)
It seems to be alot like Facebook with the “status updates”. Just one-liners to share what’s going on in your life, any hot deals happening at that moment, or just funny comments! Twitter seems to be very big with the blogging world right now, so I thought I’d jump in! I’ve already found quite a few other bargain gals on Twitter, with all sorts of deals that they’re posting!
So, I’d encourage you to look into Twitter as well, if you’d like information on the “hot” deals or just to get to know the bloggers out there on a slightly more personal level! I think this will be a great tool for me to spread the word about some great deals/freebies that I find, but that I may not have the time to post right at that moment (since posts take a bit more time–which is often difficult for me to find in my day with 2 young kiddos keeping me busy!). Believe me, I always have quite a few posts rattling around in my brain, but just run out of time in the day to post them all! Especially as both my kiddos are fighting the cold that’s going around right now!
I’d love to have more people to follow (and more followers :) ) on Twitter–so look me up at: ThriftyNWMom. Leave a comment with your twitter name and I’ll make sure to look you up, too! It’s a great way to share our deals with each other!!
