I love Twitter! I am not the first person to adopt new technology and didn’t know quite what to think when I was introduced to the product. But I gave it a try and have been pleasantly surprised by its forced simplicity (condense your musing into 140 characters) and the easy way you fall into staying connected with friends - without any overhead! Nothing to customize - you just type. Via the web, IM, your cell phone - so you can always be in touch. Technology has finally achieved something easy and fun. I love it!
