Today I stumbled upon two great guides that explain two technologies that I’ve had problems explaining before; RSS and Twitter.
The RSS Plain English video is a great explanation of RSS that even your Mom, Uncle or coworkers will understand. And it’s funny too.
Twitter — a beginners guide is just that, a great introduction to Twitter. To quote the guide itself:
In this beginner’s guide to Twitter I have taken a look at the following questions:
- What exactly is Twitter? — a full review of what Twitter is and does
- What do I need to use Twitter? — The different ways that you can use Twitter, and the technologies required
- How are people using Twitter? — Twitter is being used in a number of ways to a variety of effects
- Why do people love Twitter? — What the blogosphere and press have to say about Twitter when they are singing its praises
- Why do people hate Twitter? — What the blogosphere and press have to say about Twitter when they are less than impressed
- What tools are there to extend Twitter?
— While the strength of Twitter lies in its simplicity, that hasn’t
stopped a micro-industry forming around it. I take a look at some of
the tools and services available
