Twitter @-sign-fu

OK, is the rage of the first half of 2007. Maybe hits the same growth rate for the second half of 2007. Who knows with this fickle world of social networking.

The “@”-sign is used to respond to people on twitter, and is completely user-invented:

That is, if you write “@nickhodge blah blah blah”, there is a magic URL added to nickhodge.

Now, this message is sent to the public, but only friends of @nickhodge and you see the response. That is, if person-y is your friend and not nickhodge, they will not see your @nickhodge response.
