For those of you that still don’t use or understand Twitter, FireCritic.com helps further explain what it is and how it is useful.
I see a lot of firefighters and EMT’s ask “What the heck is Twitter”. Or better yet “What the hell is A Twitter”?
I have heard firefighters in my own department, in my own station ask what it is. Some of them don’t know what email is…so it is not worth too much of a detailed explanation.Let me explain what twitter is and why it benefits firefighters and EMT’s.
