Pinterest is for people who like pictures. Twitter is for people who like one liners, with hashtags. Wikipedia describes a hashtag as: "A hashtag is a word or an unspaced phrase prefixed with the hash character (or number sign), # , to form a label. It is a type of metadata tag."
Twitter help says: People use the hashtag symbol # before a relevant keyword or phrase (no spaces) in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets and help them show more easily in Twitter Search.
I use Twitter because 1) I love one liners; and 2) it just so happens that my brain only works one sentence at a time. A match made in heaven.
Today's tweets so far mention my distaste for potato salad and a rodent named Phil.
I encourge you to try Twitter out. If you are already tweeting then by all means follow me at: https://twitter.com/sylviack . Who knows, I just might follow you back! #happy#tweeting
