Those of a certain technical bent will be familiar with the concept of of the ‘hello world’ exercise when learning a new programming language or technique. Thus many moons after signing up for twitter, I’m going to try and actually use it a little bit.

Thus if I’ve clicked all the correct buttons, downloaded all the correct software and inserted all the correct codes my first tweet should be a ‘hello world’ announcement linking to this blog posting. Not only that but any future blog posts I make should be tweeted in the same way – thus guaranteeing me sending some tweets without ever needing to go to touch a twitter client (though strictly speaking that’s not true as is now registered as a twitter app.)
