Twitter This! - NOT just an American Thang

For those of you who have not noticed I have a Twitter account and you can read the moment to moment details (in under 100 characters) of my incredibly titillating and exciting life by checking out the box at the right of your screen (well whenever I update it).

Today, I was astounded to see that Barak Obama has a Twitter account. So, of course, I added him as a "friend". Below is the reply I got back via Twitter (a company cofounded by college drop out turned blogger turned writer turned major business mogul Biz Stone):

Hi Kathryn,

Barack Obama (BarackObama) added you as a friend!

How cool is that?

I've never heard of a Twitter account.

I'm in the UK so perhaps it's and American thing.

Off to google :-)

Hi Phillip.,

Twitter is available to All world wide and is especially big in Asia at the moment. It did, however, like all good internet ideas, originate in the US.

Twitter away!

That is so cool Kathryn!

Miracles - I am sure "he" would add you too. I doubt it is really him Twittering away but someone who works on his campaign. Just the same it's cool he has a presence on the web and seems hip enough to know about it.
