#DNC08 Is All the Buzz on Twitter

In case you are following the Democratic National Convention, then you may want to get on Twitter. If you don't know what Twitter is, it has been described as a virtual water cooler for stimulating conversation online. Twitter allows you to send short messages to other Twitter users. It's one of the most popular social media groups out right now. To learn more about it click here.

If you know already know about Twitter and are interested in following other users that also share an interest in the Democratic National Convention, then you'll want to do a search to find more people with the same common interest. One way to do this is to go to http://search.twitter.com, this is a search feature offered by Twitter. Once you've gotten to the search page, you'll then want to put #DNC08 in the search bar. You'll see how many other people are interested in the convention as well as those that are there in Denver. It's a neat way to connect with new people.

I'm working with 7 bloggers, called the Denver 7, and all of their tweets (the messages that they send through Twitter) have #DNC08 somewhere in their messages. Try it for yourself, then come back to this site and leave a comment to let me know what you think. Oh and you can follow my tweets on @mediasocialite.
