Homework

So what are you doing?


It's one of the first questions we often ask friends and family, even if the answer is just mowing the lawn or cooking dinner. It's interesting to us; it makes us feel connected and part of each other's lives. Unfortunately, most of our day to day lives are hidden from people they care, of course, we have e-mail and blogs and phones that keep us connected, but you wouldn't send
an e-mail to a friend to tell him you're having coffee. Your friend doesn't need to know that.


But, what about people they want to know about little things that happen in your life? Real life happens between blogs post and e-mails. And now, there is a way to share. This is Twitter in Plain English, thanks to twitter, it's possible to share short bite-sized updates about your life and follow the updates of people that matter to you via the web. Here’s how it works.


Mean Carla, she is addicted to her mobile phone, reads blogs everyday and has contacts all over the world. She heard about Twitter and was skeptical. After some of her friends couldn't stop talking about it, she gave it a try. She signed it for free and saw the Twitter pages looks a little like blogs with very short posts. Each page’s
personal and it has updates from friends, she got started by looking up her friends on Twitter.com. After finding a few, she clicked follow to start seeing their updates on her Twitter page. Within hours, she began to see different sight of people she chose to follow. She didn't know that Steven in Sealttle was a baseball fan or that Julia in London was reading a new investment book. The little messages from Twitter painted the picture of her friends, family and co-workers that she never seen before. It was the real world. Soon she became a fan of Twitter and posted updates everyday. Her friends followed her updates and learned that she recently discovered the passion for VenHeiland. They could see Carla's life between blogs, posts and e-mails.


For Carla, Twitter worked because it was simple, the updates were always short, under 140 characters. Plus, she could post update and follow her friends using the Twitter website, software on her broswer, a mobile phone or intant messages.

By asking members to answer the question: what are you doing? Carla find Twitter brought her closer to people that matter to her, 140 characters at a time.
