So my friend Derek convinced me to try out twitter for my HD-Trailers site. I’ve always been hesitant to try twitter, since I hear it’s like crack and I don’t really feel like updating every 30 minutes to let the rest of the world know what I’m doing.
Anyway, I’m trying out something called Twitter Tools, which supposedly automatically generates twitters when I publish a new post. I guess this would also be the test post.
So if you’re a twitter nut and would like to follow our twitters and tweets, we would love it if you became one of our followers at http://twitter.com/hdtrailers
