Giving In To Twitter
Last year I did a post about my dislike and bias against Twitter so I feel kind of embarrassed to admit that I have really gotten into it over the last several days and think it's pretty cool. It's kind of like an abbreviated Facebook, but I can be friends with Oprah, Obama, and Lady Gaga without them ever having to friend me. I think the technical word for that is stalking. (I don't actually follow any of them, but you get the idea.)
Things I like about Twitter:
1) The messages are short so they don't take long to read. If I had to contain my posts to140 characters, they would only be two sentences long. I know some of you would like that too.
2) There are some really clever and funny comments I've come across.
Things I don't like:
1) I don't care for all of the crude comments and language that is common with so many users. Most of the messages are pretty shallow. Sometimes I feel like I'm back in junior high when I'm reading updates.
2) They still call the comments tweets. I thought someone would have fixed that by now.
Anyway, if you are on Twitter, I just want you to know you can now access abbreviated Chaka's World type of thoughts at Tom@Chaka4612. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go see what Tom Hanks and Conan have been up to today.
