twitter… technology for a gardener #4

The entire list of companies for ‘technology for a gardener’ is/will be here.


This is piece #4. This is Twitter.

What is twitter? Says their own website…

Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?

In my language – it is sending a text of no more than 140 charachters and ‘allowing’ [should you wish] the world to see it. The Twestival website explains it well. So gardeners on twitter is a surprise…. did you know The RHS are on it??!

Some think believe that if you sign up to twitter and grab yourself a blog business will mulptiply by a gizillion per cent… ?!! That’s about as logic as learn how to speak Irish in just one day – and all you have to do is watch this video…… 😆

…… it doesn’t work that way. Not for me. Ever seen something you thought the world would like to know… ? Did you read the blog post I wrote? Well – this is the Qik review [live streaming video] but via text and pictures.

It was used to great effect by yours truly on St Patricks Day and so many others – all through Irish.

It was also used to great effect when Dublin Bus hit a tree.. in that it was live on twitter before any news media could get there…

But is it a business tool? In my opinion or for me, no. But, it once again makes life less complex rather than easier…

Once again the usual rules for ‘being careful’ with technology apply [common sense street wise] but after that signing up is easy. Is there an Irish alternative – not that I am aware of. For the moment – there’s only one way for you to go and that is to go check it out.
