Here's a thing. Twitter.
Once you get started and get the hang of it well you just...tweet with the rest of the world.
Why? Simple, quick and fun are the three main ingredients that spring to mind. Many are using Twitter to promote their work, others to keep in touch and some just to say hi.
You really are wired and at the forefront of what's "happening" .
If you decide to come to the other side one great tip I must share: Tweetdeck. (Once you're in you'll understand)
Thanks to the following link I set up my really nifty badges.
The first link is in Japanese ... but where there's a will there's a way.
Look forward to tweeting with you soon...
