All a twitter…

So as I mentioned in an edit of a previous entry, I have finally decided to join the ever growing phenomenon that is Twitter. I had resisted the urge to join for a while,  thinking that had I done so it would be something else I would get  incredibly obsessed with.  True to form, I have become obsessed with it. I’ve even downloaded TweetDeck,  for goodness sake.

Another reason for not joining it until now was that I wasn’t sure about the notion of  “micro- blogging” which forms the basis of twitter. On the one hand, the idea of writing entries like you would a text message, in a set number of characters,  is appealing. On the other, there’s nothing quite like being able to write  about life and all that stuff without any limits on the number of words.

At first, I got frustrated at finding I had exceeded my character limit  and having to amend my “tweets”. But now I’ve got the hang of it and I’m enjoying posting my pithy musings, as well as reading everyone else’s. I still favour the conventional blogging method, but this is a great alternative for when you don’t have much to say or just want to keep it brief.
