What is Twitter?

A cou­ple of friends and fam­ily have been asking:

  • What’s up w/ the sta­tus updates I see quite often?
  • What’s w/ the “@” (at sym­bol) next to names on your status?
  • What the heck is a tweet?
  • etc.

Rather than point­ing them to Twitter’s site, I rather just show them this video:

I hope that makes sense. Thanks to Com­mon Craft. They have done a great job explain­ing it “in plain english” =)
