Twitter... twitter... questions?

A number of you already use Twitter and have it streamed to your LiveJournals. Yes, I have noticed it and taken note - even being the luddite I am some technological advances still catch my eye...

Anyway, it seems I have now got a Twitter account all of my own (courtesy of Dave sending me an invite a week or so ago and me finally deciding to follow the link and sign up this morning) and I was wondering how you stream it to LJ and, generally, how you use it (ok, maybe I should read the site details myself but I'm impatient and heading out in 20 minutes for some homecooked Sunday lunch courtesy of my Mother... plus it's technology and I'm no good with that!).

So, in terms that an 8-year old could understand, what do I do?

Actually scrap that as todays 8-year olds are probably already programming the next wave of nasty 'pop TV' inspired computer viruses.

So, in terms that a 90-year old could understand, what do I do?

(and don't you start telling me you have a 90-year old grandparent that is the tech king/queen of the net ok)

I think there's a genuine question of whether it's worth streaming this to LJ, as most people see a list of short cryptic remarks that don't mean much without context.

Hasn't Fred just set up some arrangement where these are kept out of his main LJ?

I haven't "set up some arrangement", I just don't do it.

There's an application called "LoudTwitter" that takes care of making a daily posting of your twitters to your LJ. If you do this, Angus, please configure it such that the list is posted behind an lj-cut; not everyone (including me) appreciates the advent of it. :)
