Ok heres a challenge for you all. Although I work in IT{< not too sure why thats relevant}, I am not a member of any social networking sites as I have always thought that they are just a way for ppl to milk their own ego's. So my challenge to you all is:

Convince me to join Twitter.

I am also in IT and I use it for research. My company has started moving into the Server Virtualization world and there are a LOT of great resources on twitter. I follow a lot of Virtualization blogs and most of those guys are on twitter. So I can throw out a VMware questions in my stream, and within MINUTES i can have up to 15 answers from some of the top virtualization pros out there, including a number of folks at VMware.

There are a lot of ego strokers out there, but the key is to watch who you follow and who you allow to follow you. It takes a little getting used to, but it is my number 1 research tool.

I'm new to Twitter as well. Well, I have had it a while, but just followed a few companies and famous people. I'm going to try to become part of the fad now though! I've heard from a number of people that the more you use it the better it gets, so here goes... @chrisdavis1083

Twitter is a fun way to meet people and talk about random stuff.  It's kind of like being stuck in line, and then having a cool conversation with someone you've never met.  The only difference is if they creep you out you can block them and if you like them you can end up being friends. :)  Assuming you don't creep them out, then they might end up blocking you instead. ;)

I'm @sandranorval (that on most things too) but since I started going public with my first chapter I started @enterthetwixt

I occasionally tweet about the writing (#Libertine) and the music that inspires me (#fantasyfilmsoundtrack).

Oh and people following me, I have Alex Bell (The Ninth Circle, Jasmyn) and Suzanne McCleod (The Sweet Scent of Blood, The Cold Kiss of Death) plus Toby Frost (Space Captain Smith Trilogy). The last one's a bit of a cheat though cos he's in my writers circle lol! Oh, and Sue Cook off Crimewatch!


Libertine - Chapters One & Two available now on http://www.sandranorval.co.uk/2.html
Follow Libertine on twitter on @enterthetwixt or me on @sandranorval
