Do you Tweet? Get golf & travel updates on Twitter from WorldGolf.com
Now, the next time your airplane is skidding off a runway, or you’re being held captive in a Middle Eastern prison, you’re never too far away from instant golf & travel updates.
Okay, so maybe golf won’t be the first thing on your mind then, but the new social networking tool Twitter, which you may have heard about on the news for being the tool of choice for users caught in some sticky situations, has a variety of uses. WorldGolf.com has jumped on board to distribute it’s content in “micro-blogging” fashion and also keep an ear to the ground of golfers all over the internet.
Some of you out there don’t know about Twitter, and you may ask yourself exactly what this tool is, because at first look it’s like a foreign language. Here’s the synopsis: It’s basically a way to tell people in about a sentence what you’re up to. But it’s not just saying “I’m eating spaghetti” or “boy, it’s really time to clean my room” (though many out there using it do exactly that). But it’s most effective as a way of sharing quick information or spreading love to some favorite blog posts, photos, videos or articles.
So that’s what I intend to do with my Twitter page: passing along golf information of both my own, and anything that’s interesting, like finding good deals in Las Vegas, to hearing that Tadd Fujikawa in fact qualified for the Sony Open from the Golf Girl’s very effective Twitter page.
And golfers out there, be sure to follow us so we can follow you. We’re always looking to keep our ear to the ground with what you’re thinking about.

One thing that's awesome is watching a close tournament on Twitter with golfers from all over the world. Watching the'08 US Open on Twitter was (to use a ribald expresion) as much fun as I've ever had with my clothes on...and that's another great thing, when you're Twittering you don't even have to have clothes on.
I truly believe this is the year the man in the street will finaly GET Twitter.
I am personally using my account @andybrowngolf to communicate with as many other golfers as I can.
Like @golfgirl says it can be a lot of fun!
