When I first wrote about Twitter, back in August, not many people were using it that much. At the time, I was following (and was followed by) about 50 people, which was quite nice.
Recently, it seems that Twitter has been picked up by more people, and has become more “mainstream” – we have celebrities tweeting about their day, and in a way, it makes them seem a little more human. In my previous entry about Twitter, I said that one of the things that made Twitter more appealing is that more of my “real life” friends were signing up. Back then, it was my more techy type friends, the ones who did Comp Sci and that sort of thing at uni, but now I have people like my best friend Helen signing up (@hellybellybutt), who isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t the most tech minded sort of girl!
My following and followers lists have expanded since August – I follow about 100 people, and have about 350 people following me (which astounds me really, my tweets are about my day and random thoughts) Because of Twitter, I have met some really lovely people, and have started going to Stitch and Bitch, where IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve met more people, and which has encouraged me to start crafting again. I can get the answer to most questions within minutes (and get responses that are more useful than a simple Google search would provide) I’ve found out about great events, such at the UKLB meetup thats planned for this summer
If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve not already signed up for Twitter, head over there now and do it!
