I’ve been using Twitter for the last few months as a way to quickly and easily share news I find in the news or blogosphere by posting a "tweet." I can also "re-tweet" interesting items posted in the media or by other condo or legal professionals.
With a maximum limit of 140 characters per tweet, one has to choose words carefully, abbreviate where possible and, above all, be brief. Each tweet will typically contain a single thought or concept. This gives rise to the term "microblogging" which is discussed in Wikipedia here.
From time to time, I’ll republish some of my microblog posts or "tweets" here on our main blog for you to enjoy. These tweets will frequently contain links to other blogs or newspaper websites where you can read more details about the story, so be sure to click those links.
We hope you enjoy this new feature. Comments and newsflashes are always welcome.
