  1. hi friend,your blog is very useful for me
    thanks for good topics
    I think that Twitter is very useful but why they don’t add comment system for it?

  2. Hi amin! Thanks very much for dropping by and for the feedback comments! Welcome to elsua! Glad to hear you have enjoyed the weblog entry. I am not sure what you refer to when "why they don’t add comment system for it". That is, actually, what Twitter is all about. Sharing short comments, messages, with other folks who follow you or who you are connected with in multiple other tools, normally a bit more complex. It is like having your virtual water cooler or hang out place ready for you to shout out loud messages to those folks and connect with them, as if you would do with e-mail and IM, except that this time around everyone else can be a potential listener, too!

    That is what makes Twitter so fascinating ! Hope that helps. If not, share some more thoughts and see how we can go from there. Thanks again for the feedback!

  3. Hi Dennis! Thanks very much for dropping by and for the kind comments! I am surely glad to read you have enjoyed this rather long weblog entry on some of the benefits from Twitter. As I said, those are the immediate ones that I can see from having used the application a couple of days, and I bet there would be plenty of them more. So perhaps I can create a follow up weblog entry at some point sharing some more based on my own experiences. However, good to know you have found it useful.
    Appreciated the feedback!

  5. Great article! I like and use Twitter, and agree with your points. But I actually prefer Jaiku (http://jaiku.com) because it has a much more robust comment system, and allows you to connect other bitstreams (including Twitter).

  6. “I think that Twitter is very useful but why they don’t add comment system for it?”

    Because the whole point of Twitter is its simplicity.

    If you add comments, why not titles? And then, why not tags? And photos and video? And why not up the character limit to 256?

    Before you know it, it’s not Twitter any more.

  7. As a teen pop singer, I am on a lot of sites to help promote my music. And I agree with Joe, that Twitter is nice in its simplicity!

    Luis, your blog is awesome!

  8. Question to Luis or any other Twitter-experienced person…. If I have text messages I receive fairly regularly from a single source and I want to FORWARD these messages to all my Twitter followers, is this possible?

    Can I set it up with my cell phone provider (AT&T in my case… but that can change if I need to) to have all the text messages received from a certain source to be forwarded to my Twitter account?

    Thanks, in advance, for your opinions and recommendations.
