My mom is visiting me for the next 2 weeks. This morning, she said, “Can you explain this ‘twitter’ thing to me over lunch?’.
I could not resist rushing out to tweet it ;-)
which got some interesting responses, including one from Dean Shareski, who asked me to record the conversation.
So at lunch time, I sent out a repeat request, and first sat Mom down at the computer to watch the Common Craft Twitter in Plain English video
and then turned on the recorder to capture our conversation (it was great because tweets were coming in as we were talking)
Here’s what twitter can accumulate for the related tweets:
Here is our conversation
