    It’s gone tweeting mad since Jonathan Ross the other night.

    Yeah, apparently Stephen Fry’s followers shot up overnight.

    I signed up but havent read the instructions and couldnt fathom what to do.

    Yep. I tweet. Random crap. Which is basically all blogging is for most people.

    Mike – it would be a good extension of your blog (which I follow from time to time).

    domino – if you’ve signed up, just post some random cr*p. What are you called on there? I’ll try to track you down so you’ve got an audience.

    I haven’t tried the whole SMS twittering, though. That looks like it could get excessive!

    Looked once, can’t say I’m in massive rush to have another…

    Yep, I do… nothing worth reading though. I mainly use it as a way of doing one-line status updates on my website.

    I’ve looked at it. I then decided it was the biggest waste of my life ever. Then I returned to posting on here and struck the same conclusion. I’ll wire up my fridge to auto-tweet whenever I go into it one day. People have already done it with their toaster and toilet, what other spurious rubbish can be spouted about the internet in the name of progress? 🙂

    I’m registered and read Fry’s stuff – he’s obsessed! I haven’t got many followers so not much point me tweeting.

    If you read it from time to time, you probably read it more often than I post to it 🙂

    Might set up an account later. Will follow some of you lot and will post my name here.

    It’s blocked at work, but I’m sure one of the Twitter apps will get past it.

    Mike – two things:

    1. update your blog (there’s a good chap); and

    2. when you set up your twitter acc. switch on the SMS update facility (so, if you just gotta post, then you can*).

    Tom (lhommedunord on twitter**)

    *i heard a story about a guy in the US who walked out of a plane crash and, to let people know he was OK, sent a text to Twitter using his mobile (he claimed he couldn’t make a call for some reason) to let people (who didn’t know he had been in a crash) know he was OK

    **ourmaninthenorth = lhommedunord… geddit? Oh, whatever.

    I tweet about photography jobs, getting ripped off by record labels and getting my bikes stolen:

    At first I couldn’t see the point of it, now I’m all over it

    Yep, I seem to be getting the hang of it now I am following people and I have people following me.

    What kind of phone do you need to twitter directly from your phone?

    FoxyChick – whats your twitter name?

    1. update your blog (there’s a good chap)

    1. I mainly use it to log rides
    2. I haven’t ridden since the last update

    Almost 2 years since I joined Twitter now, but in the last week the BBC has been mentioning it all over the place.

    http://twitter.com/surfrdan but unless I know you, I’m unlikely to allow followers. Like most UK twitterers, I’ve gone private.

    o dear what have i done! I hate facebook but i’ll see what this Twitter is all about!

    rustyrockets (Russell Brand)
    TrekMTB
    Dave_Gorman

    Started last week when I could not sleep, follow Stephen Fry, he is amusing, Shedfire, as a way to try and find out what might have been happening last weekend and Chipps of these parts is there as well.

    Am all alone here with the same name I use everywhere.

    All alone, just the way the internet always is but may see what some of you are upto soon as well by the looks of it. Had a go with Twitpic too.

    my SO just started this up, hers is more of a girly thing to do with her jewelry but looks like its a good way of getting a message out if you have lots of followers.

    Agreed Graham, am playing with it at the moment and getting very spooked by the accuracy of it’s guess of your location when you are using a wireless laptop. So far seems to be constrained to built up areas (obviously) but pretty good. Now want a phone with GPS.

    Must be doing something wrong. Put my number in the following format +4407*** etc. but it said “Note: We currently don’t support sending SMSes to this number. You may still verify your phone and update Twitter, but we’ll never send you a message.”

    What am I doing wrong?
