Twitter: What are you doing?

As always, if I write a post here, it will be out of topic, totally unrelated to fashion, bags, shoes, or MAC. I don’t even want to imagine if I write about those topics… :D

I want to talk about Twitter! Yeah, you might notice about this service¬† since we’ve been utilizing it to publish short updates related to our site status since a long time ago. I see many of you are already following us. Here, I will share a little bit about how we use Twitter and how you can use Twitter.

If we define what Twitter is, the simplest answer is: Twitter is basically just like Facebook status. Status and conversation, limited to 140 characters for each one. In the past, I only report about the technical aspects of Fashionese Daily (blog maintenance, forum upgrades, server updates, etc), but now we’re also using it to follow the conversation, report what we’re doing, what we have in mind, what we just bought, sales info. Anything we want to share that doesn’t need its own article. Need examples?

  • Inhaling the luxurious smell of expensive leather at the new LV store in Plaza Indonesia :) -Koukla (status)

  • Went to Pasar Baru thrift store by chance and accidentally spent IDR 80.000 for 2 blazers. That’s why I prefer Pasar Senen better!! -Cheyqua (status)

If you follow us, you can get updates automatically, but if you don’t you can only read it from our index page. So, if you already have a Twitter account, you can start following us. Just head to Fashionese Daily Twitter page, and hit the follow button. Of course, you have to login first.
