(WZZM) - Twitter used to be something that those geeky people did. Now it seems to be everywhere, and you can divide people into three categories: You either love it, tired it and found it dumb, or you just don't get it. Twitter can be useful so here is a basic run down of what twitter is.

Twitter is a social networking service that lets you share information by sending 140 character long messages, called tweets, to your friends and followers.

Where Facebook allows for lengthy messages, Twitters short form micro-blog forces users to get at the meat of the message. This gives users a no-nonsense look at information in bite-sized chunks.

You can follow friends, family, and celebrities. Find out some of the more mundane, profound, or comedic information from each people as they share it.

You can follow a business and get updates, deals, and coupons. You can follow a news organization like WZZM 13 and get instant updates as news happens before anybody else.

No matter what you're into you can get the latest information as it happens. If you are into fly fishing you can find people that are into it like you talking about it in real time. If you are into running, you can find runners who are sharing tips.

The best way to understand twitter is to try it. So give it some time because no matter what you like, you can find it on twitter.
