My first Tech Talk column about Twitter was published last April when I said how boring it was, with constant tweets about what someone is eating and which socks they choose to wear on any particular day. I originally signed up more than a year ago, but did not find it too fascinating.A couple of months ago, a friend encouraged me to try again and I did. I found that a robust community has grown up around the tool in the intervening months and believe it is indeed the Next Big Thing.
I am not alone. US presidential candidates Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John McCain can all be followed on Twitter. So too are the UK Labour Party, the Conservatives and 10 Downing Street — the last of which actually follows me on Twitter!
