Twitter It!

Twitter! By now you've probably heard of this mini-blog sensation. If not, be sure & check it out HERE. The home page of Twitter is nothing fancy, but don't let it discourage you from signing up for this free service. You don't even have to "post" what's going on in your life; you can just read what others are doing.

Jack & Adam's Bicycles has had a Twitter account for a while now. It's a fun and easy way to keep in touch with people (those you "follow" and those who "follow" you.) When you follow J&A's you'll get reminders of core class, group runs & the shop ride. We'll keep you up to date (in 140 characters or less) on things happening at the shop, blog postings, and upcoming events. And one exclusive to Followers on Twitter is what we call "Twitter Litter."

"Twitter Litter" consists of free and heavily discounted items at the shop. We've had Twitter Litter posts of free cookies at the shop, free samples and free tubes. We'll have 2 for 1 Twitter Litter specials, give aways and other things we come up with along the way.

Besides Jack & Adam's, you can also follow pro cyclists and pro triathletes. By doing so you can see how they're training, what they're eating, and other things going on in their lives. One of the downsides of Twitter, however, is locating these people, so next week we'll post a compiled list of Tri Twitter-ers that we think triathletes would like to follow.

In the mean time, here we are:

If you're already on Twitter, what Tri related people/companies do you like to follow?
