I'm bit of a gadget-hound and tech 'tryer-outer'. So I tried out Twitter a couple of days ago:
a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?Saturday, on Twitter, you could have followed my day of beer sales.
It's a generational thing, I know, but I don't see the value in this. Real life intervenes. Even a younger friend, who is aghast that the brewery doesn't have its own MySpace page, doesn't Twitter ... yet.
I was like WYD
She was like Z
I was like L8R
Maybe I could Twitter a ticker's record at a beer tasting, and then review it afterward for a sober blog entry. But in any case, until then, I'm officially un-Twittering. Now, back to downloading The Complete Riverside Recordings of Wes Montgomery.
[UPDATE: I've actually taken to Twitter since this post, sort of un-un-Twittering.]
