When Sir Timothy John “Tim” Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in March 1989, never in his wildest dreams did he imagine the impact of his invention. In only two decades, the WWW has affected every human activity in every crack of the planet. It’s by far the most efficient communication system ever.
Companies using the Web like Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Yahoo—just o name a few—have shrunk the world into a global village using Marshall McLuhan’s words. Everything is linked to this cloud that hovers above the Earth. Everything, no matter how simple or complex, is at the reach of your fingers in real time twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year. This is absolutely remarkable and unique in the history of civilization.
Yesterday, I started getting my feet wet with Tweeter. I couldn’t resist the crowd pressure anymore. Everyone is twitting and I felt awkward not being part of this ubiquitous social movement. I opened my personal account and started uploading my photographs in an effort to share them via this popular network. I used a nice software to accomplish this task. The name of the software is Twitpic.
Twitpic is the most popular way to share your favorite photos on Twitter. When you first start using this service, you’ll need only to input your Twitter credentials. From there, upload an image, add a caption to go along with it, and send a tweet to your followers. That tweet will then show up in your timeline, allowing users to click on the TwitPic link to view your image.
The site gives you a tally of how many people have viewed your images, as well as a place for folks to comment. TwitPic is simple, it’s convenient, and thanks to its popularity, it’s trusted by Twitter users. It’s a must-see.
I posted about twenty pictures and plan to unload more today. It’s a wonderful way to share my photo-taking experiences. I was surprised to see how clear the photographs appeared on Twitter; much better than on my hard disk. Now I’m more enthusiastic about taking pictures. This blogging hobby is getting better and better as time goes by—like good wine. Good Day.
