    find me on twitter

    TwitterI’ve done it.. I’ve fallen to the draw of twitter! Thanks to Chris Moyles’s radio show I joined to see just what it was all about… Hours later I was on the hunt for something in order to tie it to my Facebook status. If you want to do the same thing:

    2. You’ll should see a link that says: Want Twitter to update your Facebook status? Click here!

    Windows Mobile Smartphone
