Tweet like a pro

Here's a how-to story that serves two purposes.

First, it's a great look at writing about technology in plain speak.

Second, it's a great way to learn all about twitter.

The love/hate war rages about the awesomeness/super-suck of twitter, but it's worth knowing how to do.

Following politicians on twitter is a great way to score scoops. They say the darnedest things.

Also, twitter is a challenge like no other in keeping writing short.

Done right: quick bursts of useful/funny/poetic prose.

Done wrong: narcissists telling you every move they make. (Unless they are said politicians, and sometimes that leads to the a fore mentioned scoops.)
