I have finally joined the Twitterverse. Not that I ever think I have anything that interesting to say, but I do like the community atmosphere, the constant sharing of great websites and blog posts, the real time updates from my friends, and the instant gratification of instant messaging with dozens of people at once. Who said the internet causes short attention spans?

I may not have a complete understanding of the wondrous possibilities of Twitter, but basically, it seems to me to be like having a constant, open, IM chat with multiple people at once. Plus, the social networking feature of being able to see every user’s friends and then add them as your own. I’m friends with Steve Jobs, Stephen Colbert and Barack Obama. Close, personal, friends.

Right now I’m using TwitKu to post to both Twitter and Jaiku (Twitter’s prettier, Finnish cousin) because Twitter was having some technical difficulties last week. I like the instantaneous, simultaneous posts of TwitKu, but I don’t like the totally featureless, boring user interface. I suppose that’s the price I’m willing to pay to avoid “cats” eating my tweets…

Speaking of the cats, when did they take over the internet? How did I miss that craze?

  1. So many people with so many tweets. It’s great to keep up with what everyone is doing but sometimes I wonder about the constant information. I’ll be looking for you on twitter. Have a great week.
