Twitter temptation

Somebody named "Tracy" sent me a request today to join Her in the world of Twitter.

Okay, first off, the new verb "twittering" just feels annoying upon my eardrums and in my brain. Twittering is an activity that should be reserved for birds.

Secondly, Facebook alreadys chaps my hide enough with its limitations on length. Twitter would be more salt in the wound.

So I could just hit the delete button, like some old luddite with hair in his ears slamming his door shut so as not to hear the neighborhood noise. Or I could acknowledge that "Twitter," like the Internet itself, is not going to go away, and give in and give it a try.

Doubt I will use it much. Famous last words, those.

Hi ECD,

Twitter is cool.

Hop on board.

I've actually used it to ask a question about a computer problem I was having and I had three people Tweet back some solutions that really helped me out. This kind of thing has happened more than once to me too.

Twitter can be a useful tool or a big waste of time. It just depends on how you use it.

If you do sign on, make sure to follow me and I'll follow you back.

I looked at twitter and to me it is a comercial tool for people, news for clients, probably huge for celebrities because people wanst to actually read their thoughts.


yes, let us know if you going to try it, I would like to read the short snaps of your brain.

I tried it but realised that as far away as I become from my friends using Facebook I was moving farther away with Twitter. If I want to know what or how my friends are then I will pick up the phone. I joined Facebook to keep in touch with long distance friends, see their pictures, etc. Twitter is only a status update thing.
