What timing! David Pogue today posted on his blog about Twitter:

Maybe something you can use. HTH

Michael, you rock! Thanks for the link. I'm definitely going to check it out. Gotta figure out how this gadget works!

The other amazing thing about this (just today) is some of the first images of the US Airways crash in the Hudson came over from Twitter.

Jen, I took a look at the article Michael left for you, and I just wanted to add a few things:

A very wise person (Natasha from Maw Books) told me she doesn't go back and read old tweets that she missed. She looks at the first page and jumps in from there (the first page will show 20 tweets I think). If you end up following quite a few people (I'm over 200, but a lot of them are book related), then it's hard to keep up with all the tweets. So I just take a quick look at what's on the first page and that's it.

You can follow a conversation by clicking on the "in reply to xxx" that follows an @ tweet.

Let me know if you have any questions at all! Look forward to seeing you on there. :-)
