I first heard about Twitter shortly after it hit the web but I resisted for a long time. I couldn’t quite see the point. I have a website. Several actually. I’m on AIM and Yahoo Messenger (occasionally) and MSN (even more occasionally). I have email. Lots of it. What would Twitter add to the mix?
Brief aside for the uninitiated: what is Twitter? Think of it as public text messaging on the web. You post 140 character “tweets” that, in theory, answer the question, “What are you doing?” They are, by default, available for anyone to see. You can hide your updates but it kind of defeats the object of the exercise.
In the middle of last year I relented, but it’s only been in the last couple of months that I’ve really started to “get” it and use it more. If you’d like to make an informal comment about Yummy or want to “follow” me, please do so. I’m twitter.com/sdarlington. I don’t only talk about Yummy and Delicious.com but you hopefully should find something interesting there.
