In Which I Explain Why People Think I'm Always On Facebook

It's called Twitter, and Facebook's Twitter application. Explaining Twitter is a bit difficult. It's ... a microblog ... a messaging application ... a refuge for the technocrati and technosnobs. In other words, it's my refuge. I typically "tweet" (as it is known) once or twice a day, and the tweets are automatically pushed to my Facebook status. Oh, and the interesting challenge in tweet-ing is that there's a 140 character limit, so one has to choose one's words very carefully! Twitter is starting to get a little traction from businesses, especially hi-tech ones, who use it as a medium to get their word out to the tech-savvy.
