. . . on Twitter.
I got myself a Twitter account over the weekend. Wanted to try out micro-blogging — just for the heck of it and to explore its possible uses, especially in the work I do.
At the moment I am not much enamored by it. There's only so much you can update it before your "tweets" start getting mundane — I mean, how many updates would you put up letting people know that you are off for a meeting/currently having coffee or lunch/reading/watching a movie . . . before it gets all too narcissistic and (worse) pointless. And really, who would be interested in whatever you are doing in your life? Currently I don't see much use for it apart from being a sort of a delayed "IM" for the people "following" you on Twitter. I suppose the people you follow and interact with on Twitter will determine if it is worthwhile in the long run. It, of course, has its uses when you are posting about a live event (I tried that yesterday for a family function). But beyond that . . . well, lets give it a few weeks and see how it pans out.
Anybody of you out there who have found Twitter worthwhile?
