All a Twitter

Do you Twitter? No, I'm not talking about bird calling. I'm talking about Twitter, a new social networking site.
What's the point of Twittering? With short Tweets (yes, that's what they are called), one can update in 140 characters or less what they are doing at this very moment.

Who cares? Say your life isn't interesting enough for others to know what's up moment by moment? 

Twitter has a ton of cool real life uses for busy moms. Here are a few hypotheticals of how it can simplify your life:

Scenario 1: Dad and baby are at the grocery store. Dad doesn't know if you (mom) want Fuji or Gala apples. So, he pulls out his cell, logs onto the Internet, and Twitters the questions. Within seconds, you get an "nudge" that he's contacting you. You give your short response, "5 Fuji apples." Presto! 

Scenario 2: You're a busy working, traveling mom who just landed in another city for a business meeting. Your colleagues are around and you don't want to call home yet. So, you Twitter a message to home saying you landed and will call later. Fast, easy, done!

Scenario 3: You have family living in all corners of the world, and it seems you never have a half hour to call and catch up. Keep up with each other with Twitter. It's a virtual way to stay connected and have a feel for each other's lives. Voila!

Signing up is free and simple, and once you start you'll see how great Twittering is.
