Havent' heard of Twitter yet? You should because all of us will be part of this new social network soon.
What is Twitter?
According to Wikipedia:
Twitter is a social networking service that allows members to inform each other about what they are doing and what they think. It allows users to send messages via phone, instant messaging or the Twitter website.
Basically, it's a Micro-Blogging platform.
Fans say they are a good way to keep in touch with busy friends. But some users are starting to feel "too" connected, as they grapple with check-in messages at odd hours, higher cellphone bills and the need to tell acquaintances to stop announcing what they're having for dinner."
There are tons of mashups out there: One of the more popular one is Twittermap.
But nothing beats Twittervision, a Google Maps mashup. It shows you in real-world what's happening in the Twitterworld. It's like an entertaining Internet show, visualizing the 'connected consciousness' as Joseph Jaffe calls it.
