    Silly question about Twitter??

    Advertisement



    Hi all.I in my zeel to help someone figure out a solution to a tech type problem,I signed up a Twitter account.Now that I have the account and desiding to give it a chance since I have it anyway.I dowloaded a tiny twitter app after considering the options discussed here in the stacks.But now I'm at a loss at what to do with it.So here's my"Silly" question.What would you sudjest to someone who is not very good at idol chitchat, has no "twitter"friends,is over 40,and unsure if his being a Twitterer is a good idea at all?
    All comments,sudjestions and options are both welcome and appreciated.

    I'm over 40 and while I don't have anything to contribute daily to my twitter (sorry to my two lone followers) I find it interesting to follow a couple of others (blackberry gurus and political themes). Until I update my own details and find additional creative uses for it, I enjoy having these updates at my fingertips!

    I'm the person you helped, and I'm in the same situation as you are. Not really sure what to do with this app. I am kinda talking (tweeting) myself at this time. I don't know enogh people with this to actual be able to play with it.

    I am new to twitter myself. I follow friends, PinStackers, tech sites, developers, news, bands and more.

    I post pics, links to articles, and little blurbs about what's going on in my life. I am finding it quite addictive

    No I keep both cause on viigo I get sports scores plus when you look at any article there is a twitter tab at the bottom to post the article straight to twitter to share with your friends who might also be looking for new updates/news....etc. You really can do without viigo, but if you add rss feeds and your own links that you like to search on a daily basis then it comes in handy

    I am finding myself using viigo a bit less. Several of my fellow twitterers do post from viigo frequently. But I am not giving it up yet.
