I’m a Twit

Just before my blog went down, I started giving Twitter a try. While my blog was down, I got to know Twitter a lot better.

And I was wrong.

Before, when I said Twitter wouldn’t appeal to me? Yeah, I was wrong. It turns out, Twitter is a lot of fun to use. Trying to squeeze my thoughts into 140 characters or less is a neat exercise in writing haiku. And I get to throw one- or two-liners back and forth with my friends. All in all, Twitter is pretty cool.

But I missed blogging. Condensing thoughts down into Twitter-sized bites is fine, but there are some thoughts I have that need the longer form of blogging, some thoughts that just can’t be expressed in 140 characters or less.

Does Twitter have real library applications? I’m sure it does. I don’t know exactly what they are, but I feel pretty confident that libraries can take any technology and find a way to use it. In the mean time, I’m going to keep blogging and keep Twittering, for fun if nothing else.

  1. Wow, that is slow to load. But that wasn’t what I was going to say.

    I was going to say, “What you said about Twitter. Yeah. That.” Because I dismissed it right up until it was so much freakin’ fun at CiL, and now… well, I like it. I’m not sure what it’s end use is, but as a social connection tool, it does its thing, and does it well.

  2. One last final sarcastic comment:
    You should have mentioned that twitter is the exact opposite of your blog.
