Okay okay, so I’m a little obsessed with social networking sites. Just tonight I joined Pownce. I couldn’t tell you yet what it does, but I’m there. I think I can share more stuff there.
I joined Twitter a while back (like, in November), but I had no idea what to do with it. So I didn’t use it at all.
Within the last couple of days, two people (whom I know) have started to follow me on Twitter, so I figured i had better figure out what this is about and use it.
I’m starting to get it. It’s like a teeny tiny blog. You write 140 character updates about what you are doing. Some have compared it to the CB, which is an analogy I love. I remember when that was all the rage in the 1970s. When I was about eight years old, my family took the all American vacation, driving across country in our van. My dad got a CB for the trip. We all created handles. I think mine was “Pooh Bear,” being that I was obsessed with Winnie the Pooh.
I like the CB analogy, but I think that Twittering is more artful, more akin to haiku.
