Reflections on Twitter

I am new to Twitter.

This feels like some sort of a confession but to my delight quite a few of the guys in class have committed the same crime. We are all about to do time together.

Seriously though, I had been curious about it for a while so I am happy to be put in a position where I have to satisfy that curiosity. True confession? I have an aversion for social media…there is a level of apprehension about the Twitter chats, I’ve heard it’s fast and furious and I hope to be able to contribute in a meaningful way. Practice makes perfect, I guess. I have to admit I find the term ‘chat champion’ hilarious every time I hear it. But I am looking forward to it and it clearly is the main social network tool in the industry so it’s great to be learning how to use it properly.

I think once I get my head around the mechanics of it I will enjoy using it. There is a certain sense of immediacy to it, a relevance that Facebook simply stopped having years ago. It might just be the final push that makes me delete my Facebook account. Sorry, Mark.
