Theres a hell of a buzz going on as the world of Sculling and Rowing takes up the latest social media application – Twitter .; A short-form messaging service that allows 140 characters, and quick-fire updates this gives readers a great instant view about What you are doing.

Pictures can be uploaded using links and services like Twitpics.; Links to other websites and direct messages to other Twitterers are easy to create.; But best of all, the amplification of one message beyond your own group of friends is possible.; When a reader likes a tweet he may repeat it or re-tweet (RT in the character-saving lingo). ; In this way if you write interesting things, your message will reach far beyond your own audience.

Rowperfect has been on Twitter for a few months.; Our page is @Rowperfect and; we have a great following from people round the world.; One of our first exchanges was with Di Binley (@dixx) who runs Rock-The-Boat rowing clothing in the UK and Jed Christianson (@jedc ) from Vesta RC in London.

Naturally as Twitter began to catch on, the US has led the adoption – but there are plenty of folk around the rowing world writing in English from Canada, New Zealand and Australia as well as the UK.;

Have a look at some of the amusing user names chosen @RowerPoet , @rowgypsy , @ViewFromTheBow and my favourite @Row4Food !; That says it all.

Over the 4 days well be writing some articles sharing some of our favourite folk on Twitter and their links so that we can all share more great news and views.

  1. Chris, Oops. sorry was it you doing all the good work getting Vesta online? I think Jed is now in Cambridge doing his MBA. Should try and meet him sometime.
