I’ve removed my Twitter feed from this blog. I can’t recall the last time I twittered something and I rarely look at the feed so I think it’s time to give up on it. I am sure a great many people still use it and it has it’s uses but for me at least, it’s time for us to part ways.

I’ve notice I just don’t really bother with Twitter much anymore. It was fun for a while but I just don’t feel the need anymore. Maybe it’s just time to remove it from my blog pages.

Politicians and twitter

June 24, 2009

Wouldn’t it be great if politicians were limited to 140 characters when answering questions.

Just think how much more efficient government would be. Elections could be over in days instead of dragging on for months because we wouldn’t have to listen to all the twaddle they spout without actually saying anything.

Congress might actually get some thing done.

They might have to actually ANSWER questions instead of beating around the bush and avoiding the issue every time someone askes them something.

Yup, I think that’s my best idea yet!

Thoughts on Twitter…

January 15, 2009

I’ve been Twittering  for a little while now and I’ve been trying to figure out what it is exactly about it that’s appealing and I think I might have an answer.

In my (not so) humble opinion it’s a bit like the background noise in an open plan office, or at a party say. You are busily engaged in your own work or conversations but there’s all this other stuff going on around you. Sometimes you pick up on something someone might say. It’s not aimed at you specifically but you hear it because it’s something that’s in your attention list. It’s a bit like being at a party with all the low level background chatter going on but if someone says your name, even quite quietly, you’ll hear it and pick up on it.

I think Twitter is a bit like that, there’s all this ‘chatter’ going on in the background but sometimes someone tweets something that on your radar and you jump in and start a conversation and that starts the relationship with people.
