When Twitter launched their new service recently, many commentators thought that the ability to continuously update your friends and contacts on what you are doing at any given moment in time, was a step too far in social networking. Yet, it’s not only been embraced, but is seen by most people as informative, valuable and fun – adding a further layer of immediacy and intimacy to social networking.
It’s amazing how much creative writing can be found in just one sentence – with some great examples being found on Facebook. Even business people are doing it now at the Ecademy network.

Love it.
