Twitter is a Micro-Blog! “In essence, micro-blogging is for people who want a blog but don’t want to blog. A personal blog can keep people informed on what is going on in your life, but not everyone wants to spend an hour crafting a beautiful post. Sometimes you just want to say what’s going on in a very direct way.” “went shopping for a new car but didn’t find anything” “watched Burn Notice and Suits and I am not sorry!” http://webtrends.about.com/od/socialnetworking/a/what-is- twitter.htm
