So a lot of my friends have asked me what Twitter is. That’s all you ever hear about nowadays, Twitter, Tweet’s, Twats. “You’re a computer guy, you should know this stuff”, they say.
From what I’ve read, it’s a mico-blogging tool. Where BeerSlugger.com is a blog and has no real limit on the amount of text, Twitter has a post limit on characters that is about the same as a text message (SMS). You can actually Twitter (effectively post text to your account and have it show up on the website) from your phone using Text messages so that I’m guessing comes in handy on the go. Though if I wanted to I could post something to BeerSlugger.com from my Blackberry (I’m a one upper). I’m not sure what is so important that you couldn’t wait to go home and post on a regular blog or website but I guess if everyone else is jumping off a bridge I should too.
Anyway, I’m hip, I’m cool, I know who the Jonas Brothers are and I use Twitter.

Eventually I’ll try and incorporate the Twitter into the BeerSlugger.com once i figure out what I can use it for besides sending messages while in the bathroom. Preliminary ideas include segments called “Toilet Talk” and “Droppin’ Knowledge While Dropping A Deuce”.
Let me know what you guys think.
