Well, maybe this Twitter thing is new to most of you all, except those who blog, or read blogs, maybe you know what Twitter is lah!
Firstly, lets get know to what is Twitter
According to Wikipedia, Twitter is:
a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send updates (otherwise known as tweets) which are text-based posts, ranging up to 140 characters long
Updates are displayed on the user’s profile page and instantly delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. The sender can restrict delivery to those in his or her circle of friends (delivery to everyone is the default). Users can receive updates via the Twitter website, instant messaging, SMS, RSS, email or through an application such as Twitterrific or Facebook. For SMS, four gateway numbers are currently available: short codes for the United States, Canada, and India, as well as a United Kingdom number for international use. Several third parties offer posting and receiving updates via email.
For your information, i also have a Twitter and my Tweets shows on my blog’s sidebar! Check it out!
I always call you all to follow my twitter but maybe some of you find it so difficult to do so, or you do not want to sign up for this service, maybe you feel that it is very troublesome to sign up this service to just follow my twitter… But please keep on reading and you will know, YOU ARE WRONG!
Usually what i wrote on my twitter is all about:
– My blog post update and the url
– My everyday thought and maybe some short notes or unorganized ideas to blog
– Some short msg that i want to tell my readers
So personally i feel that if you read my blog, or if you know me or want to know me more, you should follow my twitter! And the good news is, following my Twitter is totally FREE OF CHARGE!
Actually you do not have to sign up a twitter account on the web in order to get my tweets update!
Good news to you all right!
All you need is:
Anything else? NOPE!
Do i need a computer? Of coz, you need a computer to read my instruction but not to subscribe or follow my Twitter!

Before you start, just make sure your hand phone line is still active and have some credit left, because you need to send two or three SMS before you can get the FREE update!
