Broadcasting Your Status

Fred Wilson writes about Twitter:

It will be the status broadcasting system of the Internet.

I dont change my away message on my instant messaging client very often. When I am away, Im not there to do it. But if I can send a text message to Twitter and it just happens, Ill do that.

I dont change my avatars audio as much as Id like. But if I can send a text message to Twitter and it just happens via text to voice, Ill do that.

I dont consume local services very often on my phone because its a hassle to log in and tell them where I am. But if I could just send a text message to Twitter with my location and information starts coming to me on my phone, Ill do that.

If all these things happen because of one text message I sent to Twitter, that’s fantastic.
