Twitter Ain’t So Bad

calvin short attention span

For the past few months, I have been monitoring the use of Twitter and how it can work fora blog.  I have come to the conclusion that it “ain’t so bad” after all.  I definitely do not want to sign up my cell phone for Twitter updates.  I would never get anything done and I believe my employer would fire me!  Twitter on a cell phone, to me, is probably the biggest cause of short attention span and ADD.  Not to mention, I really don’t want a bunch of disconnected sentences from random people.  I do see where it can be useful for a blog.  In the instances where you do not want to waste an entire post on a very brief thought or subject, you can just “twitter” it.  On the other hand, I am intimidated by Twitter.  I do not want my time wasted and I do not want to burn brain cells on trying to figure out what the person meant.  So, I try to make my Twitters short and smart.  That’s not easy to do in 140 characters.  I added it to my blog yesterday, so I am testing it out and we shall see what happens!
