Twitter: Witnessing Obama in 140 characters

252

Yeah, like more than three million people in this planet, I was also used Twitter — a free social messaging utility for staying connected, which are text-based posts (otherwise known as tweets) of up to 140 characters in length — to support and witness Barack Obama — which became the US President-elect today.

Obama himself has created a Twitter profile in April last year (of course, he has other social networking service accounts like Facebook or YouTube, too). Obama has taken the liberty of becoming among the most involved politicians with social networking.

Yeah, fortunately, I could follow the critical hours of Obama through Twitter almost completely before he made the history! (Oh yeah, Barack Obama is also following me in Twitter! Yay!)

At that moment, I admitted it, it’s nice witnessing how the Obama tsunami continues….
