Twitter Killed the Blog
Several people have asked me why I don’t blog more. The truth is, Twitter is a lot more convenient. When something pops into my brain, I throw it onto Twitter. Here is my username:
Twitter is mostly nonsense, just an outlet for me to say strange things while my computer is busy compiling or copying files. During those brief moments of down time, “Tweeting” is instantaneous, while posting to my blog takes more commitment.
By the time the day is over, my itch to write is mostly gone, so I write less here. I have the best intentions to spend more quality time blogging, but I’m not making any promises.
(I know I’m not the only one…someone I work with mentioned he created a Twitter account just to follow all the people he used to follow via their blogs. Apparently many blogs have gone dormant thanks to Twitter, which is a damn shame, because many thoughts require more than 140 characters.)
