Twitter for Beginners

11. February 2009 – 17:30 by Bengt Feil (TuTech Innovation GmbH)

Twitter and Microblogging in general is all the rage right now and there have been several examples of politicians and parties using this tool. Even though Microblogging is very simple (both in use and technology) its concepts have to be understood to know which values it is offering. The Online Journalism Blog posted a Slideshow which explains Twitter for the beginners:

By the way: Some PEP-NET People are also on Twitter, as for example:

    https://twitter.com/haans is still not sure, if twitter is the “second life” of 2009. Hyped and then to be trashed…

    If microblogging at all is the “next little thing”, then we need more microblogging-service-provider and open standards for exchange between them.

    Hi Hans,

    Take a look at the open microblogging standard and laconi.ca.

    There is already a move in that direction.

    Yes I’ve followed you on sunday… you slept in late, had a coffee and then installed laconi :-)

    Maybe we are on a way to more openess in this field.
