I have modified my website to include a neat little gizmo from Twitter.. Take a look at almost any page on my website and you will find a panel at the top right-hand side of the screen that includes a photo of me, a link to my contact details, my Skype status and a short message about what I am doing.
That short message is provided by a service called Twitter. What is cool about this is that I can not only update the message online via Twitter from any PC but I can also update the status from my mobile phone. I have just been tracking Euan Semple for example from Cairo to a bus from NYC to Washington as his plane had been cancelled due to snow!
Your friends can not only track you online but can also opt to receive your messages via their mobile phones too.
Not for everyone of course but a great way of connecting.Its also kind of a mini-blog of your day to day activities.
You can see me twittering here.
