I set up a Twitter account a week or two ago, but have never updated it. Today, two separate people apparently found me and started to follow me online, so now I feel obliged to update it with mundane crap. I think I'll mainly use it to bitch about non-Heresy things such as baking or growing fruit, in fact mainly food-related, but I'll stick the occasional whinge about sculpting on there too. Now Craig is gone I have no-one to talk to about it.  :hmmm

If anyone is interested (Why would you be? :scratchhead:) you can find me on https://twitter.com/Heresy_Andy

 :whaaa: Oh dear, you do know that these things are created to suck your life away?

Before you know it you'll be busy posting rubbish to keep anonymous individuals you've never met happy and you won't have any time for real life (and sculpting!)

...hang on a minute! Sounds a bit like a forum...  :silly

Use it to post what you've worked on each day.

-It will keep the fans salivating.
-It will guilt you into sculpting more, causing you to make more money.

Be sure to create a forum topic (sticky? I don't know how it should work) to keep people aware of it and to provide a place to discuss it.

Edit: I notice you've stickied this already, you're a sharp one, unlike some of us

Ehr... what is Twitter?  :scratchhead:

it's sort of like a messaging service..... where you write a short message and then it's posted onto your twitter page...... a bit like the status thing on my space or facebook or texting on a phone....  :shrug: it's difficult to explain ...but it's basically just a real time message update service

It is a great way to impart utterly trivial information that has no place on a proper website. Check my latest update for an example.

I have to say: I quite like this Twitter malarkey. It gives me some outlet for my musings and I'm using it a lot more than I thought I would this first couple of days.

Your tweets seem to prove that all mini sculptors lead lives of fame and glamor.

Twitter seems somehow easier on me than messing about with friendface clones, I do heartily recommend twitterfox, if you run firefox though...
