“…a messaging tool and community that connects you to your networks via short messages. Unlike IM or SMS that are requests for dialogue, Twitter messages are location free broadcasts communicating – What are you doing?”

Well I’m here in Austin at SXSW Interactive, where Twitter just happens to be all the rage and a Web Awards finalist. Twitter is the perfect social networking tool for an event like SXSWi, a place where you’re often looking for people and can’t find them. Well the good folks at SXSWi set up a Twitter profile that will Flash update its friends’ profiles here (that’s everyone @ SXSWi and their activity), as well as on monitors at the event. Can’t wait to see how it all plays out and whether it fosters new friendships.
