    Twitter is a micro-blog, which means its like a blog but it's limited to only 140 characters per-update. So you can't write paragraphs about what you're doing. You can only write a sentence or two. It's actually becoming quite popular, especially among companies and famous people (the general public seems a little more resistant since the benefits are mostly to corporations and well known figures). You can learn more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twitter.

    Thanks Azskatefan :)

    I had no idea what a twitter was, and I was like "what?" :confused: lol btw a twitter seems like such a random thing though.

    I am on Twitter and really like it. Quite simple to use and much less complicated than something like Facebook. Great to keep in touch with people.

    I may be wrong about this (I don't actually use my Twitter account), but a lot of times people will chose to "follow" celebrities and people whom they may not necessarily know on Twitter. I'm guessing that Petukhov doesn't actually know Perez (hehe--that would be a photo op I'd love to see), but he can still follow him if he wants.

    I also cracked up at "Lie-say-sick"! :lol: Ah, poor girl. By the sound of things, it appears that Tanith has endured yet another ugly break-up. Hmm, yet another trait she shares in common with my sister.

    I am pretty sure that Denis does know Perez because this is not the first time that Perez has mentioned them. He put Fallen Angels on his blog in '07 when they performed it so they must know each other. They are pretty close friends with Michael Buckley, here is a link to their youtube video they did together.

    For Johnny/Jeremy/Adam fans, Figure Skaters Online is adding links to some off-ice photos from Korea at http://twitter.com/FSOnline. The cake that Johnny's fans made is beautiful! I wonder if Mr. Skinny ate some. :)

    I'm not a star or famous person, and yet I still have people following me on Twitter that I don't know. I like it because it keeps things short and sweet, which is great for me as I've been extremely busy this year.

    Oh I am not complaining. ;) It is just weird when some famous skater starts following you before you follow them.

    But I think I will follow Ben and Tanith. They looking interesting.
