To Twitter or not to Twitter?

A number of friends are "on" Twitter and apparently I should be too. I'm not quite sure why though. If blogging is anything to go by, it'll probably take me a couple of years to get round to it.

Yeah you should get on it. its much less time consuming then blogging. Basically you reserve your blogs for larger articles.

But what do you use it for? I've seen some people use it for "thought of the day" or things like "now I'm on a bus"! Surely people aren't THAT interested in what someone else is doing ;-)?

I'm sceptical too. Not for sure "I'm on a bus"..at least for me.
But maybe it can have some usefulness as IM broadcaster :) Something like "take a look to this link" or "Have you an opinion about something?".
I still sceptical, but let me try http://twitter.com/maeste

Well that worked Stefano. But did it bring anything into your life ;-)? Do you feel any more satisfied now than before? Maybe I'm too anti-social for social networking ;-)?

Stefano Maestri said...

I'm anti-social too :). For sure I don't feel better now than before, and I'm not sure I'll use it seriously. Probably the questions is "can you give something to your reader?" Isn't it the same question you should ask yourself opening a blog? For sure I'd like to share with you and other commenters of this post some link and idea come at our attention. Come on Mark give it a try, maybe you will not use it a lot, but share links and ideas would be easy and univasive, and for sure will give something good to your readers

OK, there you go. I've added a Twitter box to my blog. Let's see if it gets used ;-)

I am watching your experience with this... I am in the same area of thought as you to this one Mark.

I have avoided these things too up to now. ;-)
