Follow Yardiac on Twitter
Yes, we have finally jumped on the bandwagon. After resisting joining yet another social networking site we have come to appreciate the value of "tweeting". For those who are already active members of Twitter stop reading now and begin following Yardiac on Twitter. For those who don't quite know what the craze is all about here is some info that might help: Twitter always asks the question, "What are you doing?" Each answer to that question is considered a Twitter status update, or what people often call a "tweet." Each update is 140 characters or less. Once you've signed up, just type your first tweet in the web box. Click update to post the update to your profile. Everything! From the most mundane (going to sleep) to the most personal, (having a baby!) people say it all on Twitter. You don't have to say exactly what you're doing, you can say whatever you want. Share random thoughts, post a link, say what you're listening to or what you dreamt about. You can post something as simple as "Eating a sandwich." Twitter sends and receives millions of different kinds of messages from all over the world in real time. Suddenly what you're doing is also part of what everyone is doing, right at this very moment. For this reason, news breaks first on Twitter. When something happens, Twitter is the first to know because people who are there are talking about it. Yardiac will be using Twitter to disseminate gardening news, blog updates, new product updates, company info, funny stories, etc. So get park your horse, jump out of your buggy and start "tweeting".
