For years, I swore I would never open a Twitter account. For the most part, I think the Twitter world is insipid. Why waste one's time on an avenue one isn't interested in?
Then a funny thing happened. We decided that the radio station should be on Twitter and I kinda head up the production/internet side of the station, so I became the de facto Twitter person!!
In some ways, Twitter has made it easier to connect with certain individuals. On the other hand, I have enough trouble trying to communicate with people in-person and via email. Being limited to 140 characters almost guarantees that I am misunderstood regularly or that I don't express my points adequately.
Still, it is what it is.
