What's going on with Dave Wheeler?

Dave Wheeler has discovered ... and is becoming an active "tweeter" !

What does that mean?
It means that you can "follow" him and receive super brief updates (up to 140 characters) or other "tweets" from him via your own twitter page.  Visit to sign up for Twitter and then search for "theshot92" to find Dave' updates.  (It is free.)

Why?  What will I get?
Depending on who you are following, Twitter provides quotes, life updates and insights that range from the profound to the inane.  In other words, choose who you follow wisely... but then you probably already knew that from real life !

Why is the media making such a big deal about Twitter?
Twitter is part of what is called "Social Networks" or "Social Media".  In other words, it is an online way to connect with people and spread "the word".   (Whatever "the word" means for you and people who think like you.)  Other sites that are often mentioned as part of the "Social Media" are Facebook, MySpace and LinkedIn.  (Dave is on Facebook and Linkedin too, in case you are interested.)

Try it out and let us know about your Social Media experience !

You might be surprised what you find.
