Twitter is an online community that lets people from around the world chat with each other on the Internet and through text messaging. Now listeners can follow Weekend Edition on its own Twitter account.

LIANE HANSEN, host:

Weekend Edition is now on Twitter. If you're not familiar with it, Twitter is a free online service that lets people from around the world send and read other users' updates. It's like blogging, but you only get 140 characters to make your point. Now you can follow what we are doing. Our Twitter name is weekendedition, all one word. For more information, go to our blog, npr.org/soapbox. We're looking forward to tweeting with you in Twitterville.
