    Who Uses Twitter?

    When Twitter first came out I passed on it. I didn't care to give 140 character updates.

    However, I then started seeing that many columnists and news organizations jumped on so I did as well. I now often get my news first on Twitter . I also follow various musical artists I like as well as TV shows.

    Who else tweets?

    I'm on there. Some tweeters can get tiresome (Chad OchoCinco, Bomani Jones, etc.) but overall I enjoy it. It's the best place to get breaking information, IMO.

    I haven't yet. If I do it will be to get up dates or read others tweets. I would post any thing of my own.

    I do. Follow Jay Bilas--he is a hoot! His tweets about Raftery, Digger and the General are hilarious!

    I follow Bilas as well.

    The funniest guy who tweets about sports is a writer for Letterman named Eric Stangel. Van Pelt (notthefakesvp) is also good. Michael Rosenberg from the Detroit Free Press is good/funny (rosenberg_mike). If you want to follow high school sports Jody Demling is good (jdemling).

    I've been on Twitter for a while. Especially when it comes to sports, news breaks first on Twitter. Everything you see on the local news sports segment are broken on Twitter hours before.

    I read my twitter feed all of the time from my phone. I never really give updates of what I'm doing or anything like that, though.

    IPhone or Blackberry Smartphone? I started using a new app on the BB called SocialScope that I like a lot. Allows me to see and update both Twitter and FB from the same app.

    Android. Tweetcaster Pro is my favorite app. It's user friendly and it has the option to update facebook from it, but I've never really used the feature. I just update my Facebook from my Facebook app.

    I've been on Twitter for about a year or more now. I seem to be with the majority in that I don't tweet all the much, but enjoy following people. @freedarko and @ericfreeman have been great for NBA stuff.
