I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but I didn't know where else to do it.  My question is does anyone know how to work Twitter?  I just signed up and can't seem to be able to add people to it.

Try clicking on some of the links that people have posted here. When you're on their page, there should be a "follow" button under their picture. If you click follow, then you'll start to get their updates.  They should then get a notice, and will often follow you in return. Try that for a start, anyway.

Signed up. Tried it out. Then deleted my account.
*sigh* I'd need an iphone to do this justice.

I signed up and immediately got all this junk reply. Not sure I am going to do it. I think I am too much of a purist to pursue it.

I'm a twitter now, too and friended tons but then got a little tired of friending so I'll do more later.
Anyway, I thought I was up with Myspace, Facebook ... I kinda hope this is it for a while for "must-have" internet stuff. Is anybody else overwhelmed?

Anyway I'm heidiayarbe

I'm doing it, too, and everyone I know is doing it, but no one seems to know why or how to use it or what good it does.  It's like Twitter is a community of millions of people who signed up because they were supposed to sign up but don't really know what they're doing there or how they're supposed to behave.  Just millions of people assembled on some great mall waiting for the entertainment to begin, but no acts have been booked.

Someone tell me I'm wrong and show me the way!

I haven't looked at it at all.  After the fuss over Twitter being misused by members of Congress during the president's speech as well as Jon Stewart's lampoon of it a few night's ago, I don't think it's for me.  I get sidetracked enough by the Blueboards.  Maybe if I ever get published I'll have to do it, but it escapes me why anyone would be interested in what I'm doing on a daily basis.

What does  RT  mean in some posts on Twitter?

Does it mean Read This ?

It means Retweet, as in someone is re-posting a comment someone else made so their followers can see it too.

Anyone catch Jon Stewart's report about Twittering Congressmen?  It's pretty funny if you've got 5 minutes:
