I know you’ve all heard a bout Twitter, and how all the cool kids are using it to tell each other what they’re up to every minute. Ever since the first time I read about it, my thought has always been “why?”. Seriously, how many people on earth care about what you’re doing at any particular moment? Out of all the readers of this site, I can think of one person who would want to keep track of where I am and what I’m doing that closely, and if she has to use a web service to do that, we should probably be in marriage counseling or something.
Still, being the fair minded person I am, I realize that I shouldn’t put down an idea without having ever tried it, so I signed up for a Twitter account. I even downloaded a Google Talk (mike.mcbride at that Google Email domain)client for my blackberry so that I could post updates anytime, anywhere. I have no intention of posting things there 95% of the time, so don’t expect up to the minute updates on exactly what I’m doing, but as I do something interesting, perhaps I’ll post it there, and maybe if you find it interesting you’ll want to drop me a line and discuss. I don’t really know, but we’ll see how it goes, and we’ll see if my original thought about Twitter comes to fruition and no one cares what I’m doing! 😉
