Well I finally got around to registering for Twitter for amateur radio related activities. If you do not know what Twitter is then watch this video from the CommonCraft.com people (they make great videos!)
Twitter and its clones (such as Pownce and Plurk) have been called micro-blogging. In 140 characters or less you can broadcast a quick update at what you are currently doing. I can see the benefit for skeds, quick news of openings or DX, or just letting people know I am in the shack. I am interested to see how useful this will be. In short, I will watch the ‘signal to noise’ ratio from Twitter.
If you also use Twitter let me know, I may want to follow what you are up to in the world of amateur radio. Please post a comment here too with your experience of using Twitter for amateur radio.
