    I take it that you two don't like it?

    Personally, I don't "get" what you're supposed to do with it. Do you just write a 5 word summary of what you're doing?

    Pretty much yeah. You can update what you're doing, or keep in touch with people, ask the Twitter community about things, discuss things with people, or you can use it as a kind of marketing tool, as we're doing with Digiex.

    It’s quite impressive how many follows you have got us in just over 12 hours, I really didn’t expect it to take off so quick.

    I know you had a few problems with the layout but hopefully it should display fine for everyone now, great work.

    O_o

    I personally just don’t get what you’re supposed to do on it...it seems kind of odd.

    Well tell a lie i do kind of get it but what really is the point in it, type 10 words and sign out?
    I think iv signed on four times O_o.

    Hmmm looking back iv just said exactly what Rustwick posted.

    If anyone wants to follow my four posts :P

    Followed!

    And yes I kinda understand what it's for, i.e. Micro-Blogging, but the key thing I do is have fun with it.

    I’m giving it ago using it, not sure if it’s something I’ll keep coming back to but im gonna see how it goes. I do see the benefits for a website using it like Digiex, we can reach out to more people and it’s another way for members to keep up to date with what is going on.

    Following King and Lanta too.
