Twitter is a microblogging service where people answer the question "What are you doing?" via 140-character messages from their cellphone, laptop or desktop. You can select the messages you find useful, amusing, or both. Here is the second edition of My Twitter Favorites:

  5. Chris,

    Your Twitter feed has so many entertaining posts (in 140 characters or less) that you have a guaranteed spot on the list every week.

    Twitter looks a bit like "Facebook on a diet" -- fun and useful stuff from people you follow.

    Some people don't like the links claiming that the main purpose of Twitter is for personal updates answering the question "What are you doing?"

    The links answer 2 more questions:

    1. What are you reading?
    2. What are you thinking?

    I find those useful too.
