what in the world is twitter and who are tweeples?

I'm a tweeple and sometimes you can find me here and you can find some of my friends here too!

Now for those of you who are thoroughly confused, visit my twitter friend JenuineJen here cause she has a great post explaining all about twitter!

JenuineJen has a great post: Twitter for Dummies where she writes:

What is Twitter?
Twitter is considered microblogging. Well, that narrows it down, doesn’t it? Twitter is a place where you can send quick little snippets of information about what you are doing. You can also reply to what other people are doing in small snippets.

It is a bit like Instant Messaging with the world or updating your status on Facebook or LinkedIn. You may find it slightly more fun than blogging because you can have real time conversations with people. Also, you get little glimpses into people’s lives that you might not see just from their blogs.

She explains what tweets are and why you'd want to be a tweetering twittering tweeple. Then if you're convinced and can't wait to get started, JenuineJen tells you how to get plugged in.

That's funny. I was trying to explain Twitter to my teenager the other day and I said it is kinda like IM-ing and updating your Facebook status combined just with lots of people in real time. I think she understood.
