You may have noticed that I’ve hopped on the Twitter train. You can see the latest posts if you scroll down the right side of the blog.
I joined Facebook a couple of years ago because my old boss told me to check out his page. I didn’t realize you had to sign up to see it. I mostly use Facebook to post the blog, but I have reconnected with some old high school buddies, and made some new acquaintances. I divide my “Facebook friends” into two groups: People I Know, and People I Don’t Know. But I’ve moved several from the latter to the former as we get to know each other through blog comments.
And now Twitter. You get 140 characters to get your message across on Twitter, which suits me fine. Broadcast writing is, after all, about economy. I’ve seen some good information, some useless information, some clutter, and some funny stuff. So far, I’m using it as another venue to post the blog, and to divest my cluttered cranium of thoughts that require 140 characters or less.
Twitter continues my embrace of the digital life.
Or my total surrender to it.
