How do I micro blog? Just tweet me!

     Hence, the more social networks we have, the more access we have to freedom of speech. We can express our everyday thoughts, emotions, or ideas the more we become BLOGGERS or Citizen Journalists!  

     When I say “we”, I mean everyday people. We don’t have to be journalists, authors, or any “important” public icon to voice our opinion and it be heard. Micro blogging is a form of multimedia blogging that allow users to send brief text updates or media such as pictures, videos and publish them. They can be viewed by many people or a restricted group that can be chosen by the user.

                              Twitter gives us that freedom…and doesn’t it feel so good.

My fellow Tweeters....Follow Me!

My fellow Tweeters....Follow Me!

     If you are a user on Twitter you can find anyone and follow them. Twitter is the best way to share and discover what your friends, family or strangers feel at that time. If you have a cellular device, it takes no longer than a moment to share with your network friends what you feel. It’s in real time and everyone is updated at that second.  On Twitter they have trending topics that everyone can join in on. You can agree or disagree on a topic, or clearly join in for the comedy.

                      For instance!

    This past Sunday, September 13, 2009, the MTV VMA’s had a Twitter tracker. It tracked how many people were twittering about the VMA’s related tweets. The online community responded in an unprecedented way, turning out a grand total of 2 million VMA-related tweets while the show aired live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City. For the past couple of days there has been all kind of trending topics from Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Jay-Z, an upcoming artist name Lil’ Mama, the singer Beyonce and the tribute to Michael Jackson.

     Also, as any other social network sites parents are bond to have a page and be one of your followers. It’s kind of sad but let’s face it our parents have lives too….well some of them.
