OK – I’ve finally succumbed and joined Twitter. My friend Johnnie Moore says ‘it’s like water cooler conversations for those of us who work alone’. And he also describes it as ‘nano blogging’ (cos you can only use up to 140 characters per post). He’s written some interesting blogs about Twitter too – so if you’re not sure what it is and why bother check out some of these posts:
Making big meaning of trivia, and why it matters explores how twitter exchanges can help create a ‘story’ that can lead…well, anywhere really.
And this one – Missing the point of twitter – makes some interesting observations about ways we connect.
It would also be cool to play around with Twitter with some people who read my blog – so if you’re interested in giving it a go, I’ll see in Twitterland.
