The best kind of new love is the kind that gives you a tingle because it’s a bit naughty. There’s something so yummy and fresh- yet… just a little naughty about a web 2.0 tool I’m falling for called Twitter. I’ve been twitting on the twitter site for just a week or so. It’s not a new site - I’m just new to it. It’s silly and fun. Go try it and see if you agree.
What the heck is it? It’s a site that asks simply ”What are you doing?” Why do I like it you ask… because it’s genius. It reminds me of a site that asked ”What do you want to search for?” and made us all fall in love with it?
Mostly I love it because it’s cathartic and offers immediate reward. Smart, very smart. Make me feel good some more. I like it. No more guilt about not blogging everyday when I’ve twittered. It somehow lets me feel like I’m in the loop. Not the big picture loop, I know, but the small loop of friends I’ve created -my little loop.
Some people say it’s a time waster. Maybe it is and maybe it isn’t. Here’s my example of why I like it better than blogging… for the moment.
