It's official. As of Saturday 9 October 2010, I am on Twitter. @fishythoughts
I am so ashamed. :-(
For those of you who have been following me for a while, you know that I am violently opposed to the twitter phenomenon. So much so, that my friend Katdish once remarked, "You know, someone recently told me I am the most stubborn person on the face of the earth, but I think you take that title."
Who could forget such vitriolic diatribes as "Twitter", "Who are you talking to", and of course, the classic "Why I like Twitter." ?
So why the change of heart?
Well, actually it comes from one of my other personalities. In my other life, as amateur writer David Seven, I am responsible for co-ordinating a group of writers who will be taking part in an insane writing project in November. I'm sure you've heard me talk about National Novel Writing Month before.
Well, in order to co-ordinate the writers in my home town, and organise write-ins and meet-ups, I thought it might be useful to create a twitter account. Since I was the only writer in my writing group who didn't have one. So I set up a group to keep them updated, and to send them encouragments etc throughout the month.
Well, after I set the account up, I became so frustrated with the Twitter site, that I installed Tweetdeck on my PC.
That programme is awesome!
And I figured, since I had this application running on my PC, and it was so cool for running a twitter account, and my facebook updates, I might as well just add another one while I'm at it.
And it was all downhill from there.
Don't worry. I shall still be a twitter snob, and act all grumpy. I shall just do it on twitter.
