I'm Twittering, is anyone listening?
You had to know if you read my earlier Online Life entry that I'd eventually succumb to the lures of Twitter, an online site dedicated to answering that burning question "What are you doing?" With a 140-letter limit to each posting, it's kind of like email for people with very short attention spans. Since I check my email frequently (some might say obsessively) throughout the day, Twitter seemed like fun.
There's one small problem: there have to be people out there who want to know what you're doing, and they have to sign up to "Follow" you on Twitter. If not, your postings are like those trees that fall in the forest and no one hears. I'm one of those trees.
I set up my account and made my first post on March 12. As of today there are a total of two people following me, one who hasn't made any posts since her first one, and another who posts incessantly about an online game I don't understand. I've done three posts of my own, none gaining any reply.
It's an ego-trip, of course, the idea that people want to know about your daily life. Like this website, maybe, without the pictures (and fewer words). So I don't know, if you're into Twitter, send me a tweet sometime.
