Can someone PLEASE explain Twitter to me? I just don't get it.
I've been hanging in the forums of Artfire and I'm REALLY excited about my new shop there. Lots of people are talking about Twitter to promote your business, so I joined.
What's the point? Really, I get enough rescue email in a day to choke a crow, so I'm not sure I want my inbox flooded with "I'm having a Starbucks".
Please enlighten me? I'm all about this social networking thing, especially since it can get pretty boring looking at a sewing machine and mountains of fleece all day and especially on days when I'm not feeling all that crafty.
I get Facebook, but I'm just not sure I am understanding the drift of Twitter.
God, I'm getting old.....


  1. Twitter is so easy to use people think they are doing it wrong. Just get on and start to follow people some will follow back. Tweet about yourself and promote your shop once in a while. Makes me feel old to by the way but I still do it.
    Anyways I have ben tagged and I am now tagging you. Check out the tagged post on my blog to see what it's all about.

  2. Hi!! Glad I found your blog!! I featured you on mine today with pics of Timmy (not very good ones)in his jammies. Have a look!!

  3. It's an easy way to catch up on lots of people's goings on without checking a bunch of sites...sort of like looking at people's updated facebook status from your facebook home page. And you can send direct messages to people on twitter, too. That said, I'm not sure it's any better than any other networking/advertising site...but it's definitely fast and easy to use!
