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!
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.
