This thing called Twitter... spreading the agriculture message

Just jump right in. 

Well, I figured after one year of my blog I have got a pretty good handle on it. I have mastered facebook and YouTube as well. So what's the next step? Twitter.

According to Wikipedia, Twiiter is a social networking and microblogging service. You post messages (tweets) no longer than 140 characters long. These messages are then posted on your page and any of your followers' pages.

So why does Twitter matter? Well Twitter predicts that by 2012 it will have a billion users. And that means a billion people could that I could communicate my message with. Although we may all have different backgrounds, speak different languages, or practice different religions, I can guarantee one thing. We all eat! They are all consumers that want to know more about their food and where it comes from.

So follow me on the Twitter bandwagon. My handle (I think that's the right word) is @crystalcattle. I would love to follow my blog followers as well. So comment and let me know your name, what you like Tweeting about, and any advice you have would be awesome.
