So, *another* person asked if I’m “on twitter”, so I went and got on there. Whatever. As far as I can see, it’s a useless distraction, but people seem to be obsessed with it. I’m convinced that these people don’t have any real work to do.
Once you sign up, the only thing you can really do is send email to your friends to recruit them. How egomaniacal do you have to be to send email to all of your friends saying “hey, come and see what I’m doing at any moment in the day – because I *know* you’re interested in that”…..?
Maybe there’s some hidden useful purpose that I haven’t found yet. I’ve at least set up the IM gateway so I never have to go to the web page. More on this as I dig.Â In the meantime, if you’re doing something with twitter that’s actually useful, please let us all in on it!
