I wrote an article about Twitter which was published in the September 2009 issue of Marie Claire, which has just come out on the stands right now. If you’re already an avid Tweeter, it won’t say anything that you don’t know already. If you’re a techie, you’ll probably turn your nose up at what I’ve written. But if you’ve just been hearing about the Twitterumours everywhere and are wondering why it’s so hot, you might find a few answers. Because this is a layperson’s understanding of the Twitterage, an account of personal experience, which is really how I believe a tool should be explained and understood.
I’m happy with the way it looks. And hey! I even got my photo in the contributors page. Thank you so much Aekta for the opportunity (and Sumit for the photograph)!
And again, considering that the book I’m writing is about the ways that ordinary people (the mango junta as Saif would have us know) experience the internet….writing this piece was almost like a test run. I hope you enjoy it!
