I like to use Twitter to find out in real time what is happening. If you have never tried it try doing a Twitter search when any type of live event is going on. It is phenomenal how many people will tweet while they are at the Academy Awards, or at the President's Inauguration. I thought there has to be a few tweeters in Iraq we just have to look for them. The best one I found is listed down below his user name is "AliKadhmawi". He has been tweeting all day.


National Alliance currently meeting to decide on their candidate for deputy speaker #Iraq

I guess when you get to be my age certain things are puzzling. So not wanting to sound " un-informed " what is a twitter? My guess is a news site, but I suspect I am wrong.

Twitter is kind of like Facebook or Myspace....

It is a place that people can log into online and post what is on their mind.... ;)
