First postal mail, then email, then the web, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo, AOL, now twitter?
Where will they target people next?
(Hint: everywhere that becomes vaguely popular).

If you have to ask you cant afford it. Image

It is a micro blog site. Web 2.0 and all that.
You have 140 characters to make your point.

It is a good way to follow other people with certain types of information. In this case you can follow new posts to the AEVA forums.

OH.... Image Image ....So that's what it is......I must be both "out of touch" AND "insufficiently nerdy" LOL Image Thanks for that....

That Wikipedia sure has a lot of stuff...Almost every thread on here has a link somwhere! I must use it more often.....(Although I looked up "power factor" and found it must have been written by Electrical engineers FOR Electrical engineers! ImageI didn't learn much )

Having added me to the lineup of people who do stuff for the AEVA just means that things will be more accessible for the "online crowd".

If you don't use twitter, we have RSS feeds also.
If you're puzzled about what that means, don't worry about it, just log on to the forums and read things like most people do :P

The idea behind these things is to make the AEVA available for access in many different ways, so that people can pick their favourite type.

...I'll just stick to the "old fashioned" way, of using a powerful home computer with more computing power than they dreamed of when they sent a man to the moon, to keep up with goings on on the EVEA website!    Image How things change....And I'm only 38!!!!!
More access for all...can only be a good thing....Once again...well done guys for a great website.....Image
PS...I don't know what web 2.0 is OR an RSS feed but I'm not about to ask..LOL Image I'll look it up on wikipedia! Image

I used to have a Twitter account. Posted a tweet or two but I really never liked it. I prefer Facebook over Twitter. The apps are cooler and it's more interactive.
