Did you know that Twitter turned 5 years old last week?
Happy Birthday, Twitter!

Do you use Twitter?

Do you not understand why anyone would want to use Twitter?
This video is very illuminating for those who don't "get it."

25 billion Tweets were sent in 2010.

Especially since, according the Twitter Blog, the world now tweets 1 billion tweets per week!  

Want to see the top ten trends for last year?  Some I expected, some I didn't. 

10. Pulpo Paul - the Octopus who perdicted FIFA World Cup wins
9. Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows - The final Harry Potter book
8. Justin Bieber - Teenage Canadian pop singer with a famus hairdo

7. Google Android - New Google Phone
6. Apple iPad - New Apple Product
5. Vuvuzela - a plastic horn used to make noise, especally at the FIFA World Cup

2. FIFA World Cup - Football World Cup (soccer) won by Spain in 2010

No, I don't tweet. I have enough trouble keeping up with my blogs and the handful of others that I read. I do like FB though. I suppose that is similar?? I mean you can just post statuses thru the day about assorted things. Sometimes people comment back and forth, other times not.
