Twitter is here to stay

As much as I love trying new web applications and services even when they are in private beta, I was a late adopter when it comes to Twitter. I finally gave in a couple of months back just to see what gives and was immediately taken by the power of it as well as the addiction factor is amazing.

In fact, a post by RT Cunningham on how he just joined Twitter is what prompted me to write this post. I am following you now, RT! 😉

Twitter I am still not a heavy Twitter user yet but I have been following the tweets regularly from the people I am following. I think it’s a great medium and has a lot of potential. I like the fact that you can send out a message so quickly but it can also be such a time sink reading through all the messages. So, I’m trying to keep it under control at the moment.

I have added a Twitter widget in the blog sidebar where so you can see my current Twitter updates right here from the blog. I think this gives some more personal touch to the blog and you can see what I am up to besides blogging. Plus, now that I publish my tweets to the blog, I’ll be more inclined to post useful links that I come across but don’t have the time to blog. I already do that a bit by publishing my StumbleUpon feed in the sidebar and this will hopefully be a nice addition.

If you are on Twitter, send me a message and it will be nice to connect with you in another way besides the comments here.

Happy twittering! 😛

    Twitter is fun. I don’t follow that many people right now … but RT is one of them … he’s definitely gotten into “twitting”. I followed you … looking forward to see what kind of nuggets you throw you there.

    I still haven’t got into “Twittering” and I’m usually into these new things but… I haven’t really figured out exactly what I’m supposed to do with it. Maybe I’m getting old 🙂

    Aloha.. thanks for that. By now, you have probably seen what I throw out in Twitter plus my readers can read my current twitter updates in the blog sidebar here!

    Mr. Music.. I was the same way for a long time. I think Twitter is different to different people on how they see it. It kind of evolves into what you want to do with it. I just broadcast things I am doing and things I don’t write on the blog.
