I’m a true believer in the power of new media, open sourcing, wikinomics, etc… but I’ve never understood Twitter. When the phenomenon started, it sounded like one of the dumbest things I’d ever heard of. I already spend enough time following blogs; I didn’t see the appeal of following hundreds of text messages that were too brief to hold any real content. I created a trial account once, and after confirming that 90% of Tweets were worthless, I deleted it.
I guess I’m old school, but I prefer communicating at least at paragraph length. I’ve never really understood the appeal of texting or Facebook wall-to-wall conversations either.
Nonetheless… because I don’t want to risk turning into a dinosaur before I hit 30, I decided to give Twitter an honest try. You can follow me at Reach 364. I’m hoping I’ll learn something and be proven wrong!
