Twitter Is Killing My Blogging
I started twittering about 3 weeks ago just to see what all the hype was about. I have known about Twitter for over a year, but before now, I just didn't get what the appeal would be. I thought: Do I really want to tell the world what I'm doing every minute of the day?
In these last 3 weeks, I have twittered 72 updates, or "tweets" as they're also known. It turns out I am finding it fun and fulfilling to use Twitter and to follow a few friends and co-workers that are doing the same. It satisfies the urge I have to let people know about things I am doing or find interesting. Since each update is limited to just 140 characters, I don't have to spend much time writing as much as I normally do in a blog post. The amount of blog entries I've written has dwindled to just 2 or 3 in the last 3 weeks.
