I have been hearing about Twitter, and tweets, but I don't know how to use them. I got the impression somehow that you needed to use Twitter on phones, but come to find out it can be used on the computer. If someone is willing to explain how to use Twitter on the computer, I would appreciate it-- I want to know if it is something that could better this blog, and hey, any kind of communication that can help you in an emergency is definitely worth looking into.
So, if someone could send me information on Twitter, with as many details as you can fit in on how much it costs, how it works, (phone and computer is fine, I just don't think I would be using it as phone technology, but someone else may be able to) if you think it could better communication about things important to this network, etc. it would be greatly appreciated.
In a nutshell (I figure you know I'm long-winded by now :) How does Twitter work, and would it be beneficial as emergency communication?
From what I heard, it certainly seemed to help with communication that wasn't getting out in any other way during recent unrest overseas....
Thanks for any help in advance.
