On one of my sport's sites there is a "Twitter" heading. Then one of the basketball players upset his coach by "twittering" while on the bench.

I assume this is a new techological phrase and not a body ailment Shocked .

What is it and how does it work?

Twitter lets you send very short (<140 characters) messages ("tweets"), and read the messages ("follow") sent by other people of your choice on a syndicated feed. It's somewhere between a personal newsletter and hard-boiled detective novel-style first-person narration.

Getting in trouble for twittering when you should be paying attention is all the rage right now--several members of Congress are in the weeds for updating their Twitter feeds during session.

You can change it in your Settings so that you don't receive emails every time something happens.

I use it, but only in a receiving capacity. I've made an executive decision that my life is not exciting enough to report on.

Sullivan Co. is a dead zone--how do all those Orthodox guys survive on vacation? In the city, they're glued to their cellphones 24/7... actually, 24/6, since they're Orthodox.

Dittos, EJ! LMAO!

I have no experience with "tweeting" or "twittering".... and, lately, not much more with "twatting," unfortunately.
