…Twitter. (Does that make me a twit?)
I’ve read about it. Registered. Checked out the site. Tried to follow a few people. Got frustrated. Read a bit more. Looked for enlightenment in Robert Scoble’s recent post.
And yet it still seems a bit banal. I don’t need that much information fed to me in baby-sized increments at all times of the day.
Now, I’m not saying I need a novel’s worth of prose (or even a short story). And I’m all for brevity being the soul of wit.
But, I respectfully submit, where’s the wit in twit? (Pardon the rhyme.)
I hear many people raving about Twitter; people I know and respect. Perhaps I’m being old fashioned. Maybe it’s a case of missing the birds for the tweets.
But could someone please explain to me what’s so good about Twitter, what I’m missing and why I should give up something else so I can start paying attention to tweets?
Listen: I like one-liners as much as the next guy (maybe more), but I just don’t see the big deal about these.
