My Twitter Tools

After reviewing the sites and applications I use most in conjunction with Twitter, I discovered it was more than I thought. I use the Twitter Home page, HootSuite, Tweetie, Bit.ly, Facebook, Twitter API, and probably a couple more every now and then. I then reviewed how and why I used each one, this process helped me considerably.
Each one of these systems has a place in my comfort zone and there is no reason for me to change what works well for me.
I think too many people try to force themselves to use one system, use what works the best for you!

Verizon Wireless

I finally decided to try a Netbook and I wanted one that had Wireless service. After researching the options I decided to give Verizon Wireless a shot. I have been on AT&T for over 10 years and although I have always been happy with their service I have noticed some weaknesses in their 3G coverage on my iPhone.

I went to the Verizon Wireless store in Flowood, Mississippi and I was extremely pleased with their customer service. As expected they wanted to talk me out of my iPhone, but they respected my stance to leave that out of the process, I just wanted a good Netbook. I will be going back this Friday to look at the new Android offerings they have.

For the Netbook I settled on the new HP 311 Mini, which I will cover in a later post.

For now I just wanted to say thanks to Verizon Wireless and let everyone know what excellent service I received.
