I have been using Twitter a lot more lately.  It wasn’t really my thing, but I can see the usefulness of  it.  I’m not sure that it’s doing my traffic (or lack thereof) any good, though!  For a few months I followed a couple of thousand people on Twitter, and a strange thing happened: I became fascinated with just watching the numerous conversations stream by.  Hunter S Thompson talked about tapping into the main nerve of the country just by being in Vegas and surrounded by the distilled American culture that was on display there.  I think you can see something similar just by watching Twitter conversations.  It’s almost voyeuristic.

OK, entirely voyeuristic.

That said, I am becoming more vocal on Twitter now.  Maybe now I’ll capture that popularity that so eluded me in high school.  Maybe now I’ll be cool!
