When I describe Twitter to people, I often get blank stares.
“Why do you need more interruptions in your day? Aren’t you already busy?”
Here are two examples of the true power of Twitter:
* Last Friday I was having real trouble with WordPress. In frustration I twittered “WordPress, what part of < BR > don’t you understand?”
It was more of a rhetorical question than anything, but within the hour Nick Hodge from Sydney tweeted back the answer! (It’s < BR / > , if you’re interested.)
* Later that day, I sent out a tweet for feedback on some design tweaks to SimonYoungWriters.com. Again, within the hour, I had some feedback from a 16-year old freelance designer in Auckland!! (feedback which I’ll attend to very shortly, Ludwig – thanks again!)
