Twitter in Plain English…

Anyone who has visited any of my blogs knows that I have quite the penchant for Twitter. It’s community seems more vibrant with thoughts, things overheard, questions and ideas rather than just being somebody’s life aggregator (sorry Jaiku). I have to admit that I have been prone to Twittering Habs hockey games, ski trips and the occasional silly outburst in a meeting (read Luddites explanation of technology). It’s often the perfect 140 distraction for when I’m waiting: in line, for someone, while the commercials are on.

Well one of my fellow Twitters: Cali Lewis, host of Geek Brief TV, stumbled on this great flash video from CommonCraft on what Twitter is. Twitter in plain English. Great video, thanks again Cali.
