Wary as we are of jumping on the bandwagon, we think the new PCA feed could be useful. For those of you who use Twitter, what would you like us to do with it?

having read your link none the wiser on "twitter" could some one explain in simple english please. Is it a blog of somesort.

Well spotted. I should have said "used by less than 7% of the PCA readers who use social networking services".

"what would you like us to do with it?"

Very brave Paul in view of the comments which some can make here!

On a more serious note just keep it light and chatty perhaps offering some real time thoughts in the office on emerging subjects, even if it is conjecture. The last thing we need is rounded prose and it is a great place for general opinion outside of the normal editorial strings.

What do folk really think of W7, Apple iPhone, the state of the nation or whatever. I think it allows us to see what rumbles on behind the professional exterior.

Twitter? didn't that get Stephen Fry out of a bit of bother in a stuck lift recently?

At least two respondents who don't know what Twitter is about? Maybe a generational gap, I guess.

Even if you don't use it, you can't really miss hearing/reading about it now. I don't like Facebook, MySpace, et al, but Twitter is very different, nicer to use and an efficient use of time.

twitchers i've heard of!

Interesting, I had heard of Twitter, but until now didn't know what it was.
Perhaps I'm missing something, but isn't it just like a links page?
