  • Twitter is the ultimate water cooler out of the web. It’s a cross between a micro-sized blog where you can express your thoughts in 140 characters or less, instant messaging, and mobile texting. It works on a very simple model where you choose who you want to follow, and in turn others may choose to follow you. There is also a block function to block those who you don’t want to follow you.It’s great for communicating content, pointing to interesting things you find and want to share, or rapid communications during events.
