“Twit” is no longer just a mean word 🙂
I signed up for Twitter a while ago. But I never “got it” – until recently – when I figured out the awesomeness of microblogging.
Seth Godin wrote this on his blog:
“My goal in creating this blog is to spread my ideas and keep me from having to write a book about every single thing that pops into my head. I’m an amateur, not a professional.”
“Micro” blogging takes this and turns it on its head – and completely frees me from even the “gotta write a meaningful post” world of “macro” (a.k.a “the usual style of”) blogging.
Microblogging lets me put out stuff that is interesting, stuff that I want to share with my followers, but is too trivial to take up space on my blog.
Though many folks use it in a more social and personal context (“watching Spiderman now”, “woke up late”, “eating lunch” types), it has a much more powerful and serious side to it that is just begging to be taken advantage of.
Now I’ve started leaving behind a trail of my online activities on twitter – for my tribe: Web sites I’m visiting, articles I’m reading, videos I’m watching, books I’m reading…
I invite you to come stalk me 🙂
