    twitter is the latest, most intrusive of the social networking phenomenons. haven't done it via my bb, but twitter is a site you log into and say what you're doing right then. i.e.: "hey, i'm going to the store to buy bananas" or "i'm in the bookstore and i just met that hot chick from 'one tree hill'" or whatever you're doing. and you can have your network and everyone knows what everyone is doing.

    i don't care for it personally. but then, i have no friends.

    The idea is nice but, as scipio1 said. If people know who you were and you posted all this information about you then worse stuff could happen.

    I know you can block people from your Twitter.... I believe you have to choose to make your info public.... but I could be wrong there.

    Update - just logged it to see and there is this option:

    Protect my updates Only let people whom I accept as friends read my updates. If this is checked, you WILL NOT be on the public timeline.


    Update 2 - feel free to check mine out if you want to see it - http://twitter.com/melissaox

    Re: What is BlackBerry "Twittering"?

    About getting robbed: You must be talking about that new BB patent. That and Curve info is what I saw when I clicked on the BB Beat link. I hope someone brings up privacy issues about that, I don't want MY address added to anything! And I'm sure others don't either! I have to read the patent request more carefully, but I'm hoping that only if you enter your address voluntarily can someone copy it to their address book.


    Twitter looks like a blog/chat type program to me. Maybe I'll check it out!

    Like so, that's way too much info. If you want to be that upclose with someone just meet them why don't you! Lol. And that's my 2 cents!

    Pearl diva the address patent is about when someone emails you and you already have that person saved in your address book, you could then extract phone numbers, and other info relavant to that contact and update your address book all in one swoop. I personally don't see this as a problem.

    Like I said, I have to read the patent request more carefully. It does look like this will be used when the sender in one way or another voluntarily includes an address. I won't be creating a signature with any address in it, just the same. There are some people who shouldn't have all your info, even if they're a contact.
