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!
