Update: Check out Twitter 140 for a helpful further explanation.

  1. This is an excellent video! It could not have been made any more clear than it is. I use this to explain Twitter to friends and associates that don’t know what the heck it is, and they instantly “get it” after watching this clip. In fact, ALL of the Lee LeFever videos are equally as effective. Great job Lee, and thanks so much!

  2. Very nice job, just a small suggestion, why don’t you translate or just subtitle the videos to another languages? I’m from Brazil and a lot of people don’t even know what is twitter and their english isn’t very good.

  3. This is a non-profit for Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN), the Whipple Procedure and Pancreatogenic Diabetes. Find useful info and a forum where you can get your questions about these conditions in a safe, private, environment.

  4. At this time we have representation at an International Conference for Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia ( MEN ) and are trying to form an International Association for MEN, this will enable research studies and medical information about this rare condition to be shared around the World.
