So I gave in... (Twitter)  
...and signed up for a Twitter account yesterday. At first, I didn't understand the allure... basically I thought it was Facebook status updates (to the extreme) but once I got used it, I found that it's pretty fun to be able to follow celebrity-type people and theatres, etc. and not have to have them follow you back (or even really know who you are...)

Great way for me to keep up with the latest casting notices, show reviews, etc. without having to seek them out myself on the net... which is what I like about it. :)

If any of you are out there and signed up for Twitter, I'm shutterbug93 there... I'd love to find and follow you. :)

But my question to all of you with Twitter, LJ, AND Facebook is... How do you keep up with all of them? I find it really hard to just keep up with LJ and Facebook as it is. ;)

Tweetdeck is my savior. ;)

Thanks for letting me know about this! I downloaded it and have been looking at it... it's pretty convenient. It's a shame it doesn't incorporate LJ as well. :) It's a good way to keep up with all the updates, though. :) Thanks for the great suggestion. :)

Sorry for the question... but I noticed that not all of my FB status updates were showing up on Tweetdeck. If you view them online will they not show up on Tweetdeck, or is it limited in some other way? Just curious if you knew.

I know Tweetdeck can be a bit slow when it first launches, but not sure what else to tell you!

I love Twitter - sometimes more than LJ and Facebook because I can just tweet little thoughts and go. I check Twitter more often than the other things for some reason. (Maybe I have a short attention span and 140 characters is about all I can handle sometimes. Haha!)

Haha!! The 140 character thing is hard for me to get used to. :) I guess I write too much, normally. :D I like Twitter, though, it's definitely addictive! Wondering if you know... do really old tweets just fall off and are not saved anywhere? Just curious.

I think you can keep going back farther and farther to find the old stuff.

I don't do Twitter :-P I hardly write on LJ and try to catch up with FB, and I have a Japanese blog and SNS so I think I'm at my limit ;-)
Sheri: Sheri Mangashutterbug93 on May 31st, 2009 06:00 pm (UTC)
Very true, I should know limit,... but sadly, I don't! ;) And what is SNS?

SNS is social network system (?), it's like FB and LJ but it's in Japanese, mixi is the site. There are thousands of communities, so when you need to find out about something it's very handy too.

yeah i like twitter simply for the fact that i can do a simple update and not have anyone expect anything terribly big from me.. im slowly drifting away from facebook, and i cant even remember the last time i was on myspace lol but i do check twitter and lj every chance i get

I like that about Twitter too... I still like Facebook, but I haven't logged in to MySpace in a VERY long time... In fact, I think my status update was thanking people for my birthday wishes back in Jan!! :P I still love it here on LJ, though - I've been here so long... I don't think I could leave.
