The Deal with Twitter

Okay, I got bored – and now you can learn about my boredom any time I care to tell you about my boring life! Seems silly to do, but… I’m a silly guy. Silly people know me, too (as evidenced by today’s twitterpations):

Have you been twitterpated? It’s the non-sequitur social center of the universe! I’ll be your random friend, sure.

  1. I’m giving Twitter a two-week trial to see if its something I’ll keep doing, or will it be something I’ll lose interest in right away. I figured it would be something silly that I’d lose interest, but I’m finding it strangely addictive…. probably because it is a bunch of random but social non-sequiturs.

    But right now all of my “friends” are people I don’t know personally except by reading their blogs, listening to their podcasts, or watching their screencasts. That’s OK, because they are all smart, interesting, funny or some combination of all three… so their twitterpations are usually amusing. But I’m also hoping to convince some folks I know personally to try it out as well. But its a hard sell. Most of the folks I know around here, western PA, and of my age (low 40s) don’t/won’t use IM, and Twitter is like a random, public IM. But we’ll see.

    Your “friend”,
    geek
