all a-Twitter

I'm bit of a gadget-hound and tech 'tryer-outer'. So I tried out Twitter a couple of days ago:

follow me on twittera 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.]


  1. I use twitter for my blog.

    I hooked it up to

    and now everytime I post, anyone that subscribes to my twitter will get a notification. It's nice because you can subscribe via a cell phone - so people know right away when I post! Cool eh?

  2. Loving this modern technology to find better, quicker, more pervasive ways to have nothing particularly interesting or articulate to say. Isn't Wes Montgomery the Twitter of the jazz world?

  3. More like a Wikipedia of jazz guitar.
