Twittering Twittering

Tuesday, April 24th, 2007

I’ve been using Twitter for a while, and only now do I read about an article about twitter when Mr. A. Racoma posts the link on Twitter.

The first thing that caught my eye was the picture. The guy with the glasses is hot. Haha.
Recently, I realized that guys who are tall, white-skinned and who wear glasses catch my eye.

Anyway,

For anyone unfamiliar with the latest trends in technology, “Twitterers” send and receive short messages, called “tweets,” on Twitter’s Web site, with instant messaging software, or with mobile phones. Unlike most text messages, tweets — usually in answer to Twitter’s prompt, “What are you doing?” — are routed among networks of friends. Strangers, called “followers,” can also choose to receive the tweets of people they find interesting.Twitter is best understood as a highly flexible messaging system that swiftly routes messages, composed on a variety of devices, to the people who have elected to receive them in the medium the recipients prefer. It is a technology that encourages a new mode of communication, he contends.

Sending tweets broadcasts “I am alive!” Reading tweets satisfies the craving of many people to know the smallest details of the lives of those they love.

The only people in the world who might be interested in my twittering — my family, my close friends — were precisely the ones who would be entertained and comforted by their triviality.

The only reason I got Twitter is so I can update my blog readers on what I’m doing without the need to write a full blown post. Though if you ask me, Twitter is not unlike a forum or messaging board of sorts. Different, but roughly with the same aim–communication (Yes, I am that simple-minded).

It also reminds me of a chatroom where people leave messages for other people to read.
