Essential Twitter

Time sinking

Fast moving

Link sharing

Focus busting,

Target setting

Mood shifting

Thirst quenching


Fast moving

Cool buzzing

Hash tag spinning


Awe inspiring

Smile inducing

Friendship building




With sincere apologies to the ’70s (?) Pepsi advert for the inspiration (?)

    This was a good post Joanna, quick to read. I then went on to read the other two posts of yours that you mention concerning Twitter. I haven’t been on Twitter that long, infact, I have made a recent return to Twitter after not touching it for a couple of months. I’m still undecided about its usefulness. I must say, I really appreciate the fact that you do ‘chat’ back on Twitter. Thank you for taking the time.

    @ Cathy, thanks, glad you enjoyed it, and the other back posts. The one on sticking with twitter is worth thinking about in the early days… it does take a while to ‘get’ twitter but once you’re rolling.. there’s nothing quite like it. But then, I appear to be an addict ;-)

    @ George, that’s the first time in my life anything I’ve done has been said to be hip. Thank you! ;-)

    @ Barbara… I’m groaning. Do love your one liners… honed to perfection on twitter?

    @ Shari, isn’t it fun how we can get all that in one day of tweeting… sometimes even in one hour? ;-) Thanks for indulging me in my indulgences ;-)

    @ Robyn, I’ve had so much fun through Twitter, I enjoy trying to find unusual ways of expressing it back! (PS Good to see you :-) )
