About This Episode

A group of Twitter power users met up on the last day of the TechEd 2008 Conference.  They sat down with Deep Fried Bytes host and Twitter user Keith Elder to discuss their ideas, experiences and observations of the online service.  Each person has their own reason for using Twitter but they all share a common theme.  They all use Twitter to keep in touch with their friends and stay connected to keep relationships thriving.

This episode of the Deep fried Bytes is brought to you by Red Gate Software. First class developers insist on knowing how their code performs before releasing their application into the wild. ANTS Profiler from Red Gate Software is a very easy to use profiler for .NET developers, that will profile the performance of your code, so you can identify any performance bottlenecks, before you ship. Using ANTS Profiler gives you that extra edge that makes all the difference in the world, since you can fix any known issues before shipping – and before anyone notices anything! ANTS Profiler can be a lifesaver so, if you want to get your hands on it, download a 14-day free trial from the box ad below.

Nice show guys. Twitter has definitely been a good addition to my life, and I'm always interested in hearing how others are using it.

Keep up the good work.

What's this Twitter thing I keep hearing people talk about? Is it a new API from Microsoft?

Interesting podcast, but a note about the podcast format: Many people listen to podcasts while commuting or working out (thus the convenience), so saying "pause the podcast here and watch the video" isn't very practical/helpful. There are screencasts of course, but audio podcasts are expected to be audio.
