2. How and when did you first hear of Twitter?

If I’m not wrong, it was Craig Cmehil @ccmehil from SAP who told me about it.

3. When did you first start Twittering?

According to my archives it was exactly on December 12, 2006 at 7:27 a.m.

4. Why does Twitter appeal to you? Why do you Twitter?

Because I think that it’s a great tool that allow to quickly get in touch with my friends
and colleages.

I have met several new people with a lot of interesting thoughts to share. Also, it has been a great tool to help me “Market” myself and the services I provide (Blogs).

5. Did you immediately jump right into Twittering, or did it take you a while to start Twittering regularly?

Sure, first time I got into Twitter was for me like finding Neverland. Sure, I used to get bothered about the constant failures and blue whales, but at same time I started to get addicted to the service.
Now, I can’t spend a day without giving at least one Tweet.

6. How much time do you spend each day on Twitter?

Well…I Tweet from home, work and the home again. So I can say that I’m connected the whole day. I don’t sleep too much, so that adds more time to my Tweeting experience.

7. When someone asks you what Twitter is and how it works, how do you describe it?

As a tool to tell everybody who you are and what you’re doing at any time. Like a big public diary. Also a way to meet new people and start new contacts.

8. If you could follow only three people on Twitter, who would they be and why?

That’s a tough question, because there are so many good people out there. But if I got no other options I would have to say… @jspath55 (Because he’s a very good friend, very smart, SAP Mentor and always backs me up) @mepmarcelo (Because he’s a very good friend, very smart, SAP Mentor and always interested in my stuff) and @dahowlett (Because he’s my friend, SAP Mentor and he’s my link to Technology and Enterprise stuff, no one better than him to tell you what’s right and what’s wrong in the most acid way).

9. Do you have any pet peeves re: Twitter?

Sure. I hate people who try so hard to be the promo queens – tollowing everybody and expect to be followed back. I only follow people for two simple reasons: They’re related to SAP or Technologies or they have intelligent things to say.

Quality does matter…not size…you can have thousands of followers but only gibberish or you can get only a few followers but talk smart things.

10. What do you think Twitter’s future is in 1 year? 5 years? Do you think you’ll still be using it?

I’m sure we’ll keep using it…even if they start charging for the service, which is something I read somewhere. I declare myself a Tweetaddict, so only if the service gets shotdown I’m going to stop Tweeting.

I think that Twitter has a lot of potential…new Twitter-related services come everyday…I actually have a nice collection of links on my GMail account. Love to try every new service, and get the most out of Twitter.

11. Do you use a Twitter desktop client? If so, what do you use? What are your favorite Twitter tools/apps?

Of course. I have tried many, but my all time favorite is without a doubt “TweetDeck”.
About Twitter tools? I guess you’re talking about services. Here are some from my personal list:
