I have one but I have NO idea how to use it. And all of the little symbols people use (the @ and #) I don't know what they mean...

The @'s are replies and the hashtags (#) are for conversations. You can search by hashtag to converse with people you don't necessarily follow. Or just for lists of funny things (like #oneletteroffmovies to see stuff like "Apocalypse Cow").

I love twitter. It's killed my ability to compose a blog post, but I love it just the same.

I'm a morning person.  We actually do exist.

I occasionally post there but it's mostly business related. I like facebook better.

Oh -- there is a thread in WAHM Well where I with some info let me grab the link -- http://www.mothering.com/discussions...83&postcount=6

There are some really good Twitter 101 articles out there. The twitip.com site I linked in that post is a good start!

Thanks! I'm hoping to generate blog traffic with it because I've heard it's good for that...
