If you’re not already in the Twittersphere, Twitter allows you to share your life’s happenings and thoughts in short bursts (140 characters or less), via Web or mobile phone. You can write “tweets,” as they’re called, for yourself (like a little pocket-sized blog), or for whoever wants to “follow” you on the site.
So I started capturing the little happenings and moments of my day, keeping each one short because I had to. They weren’t necessarily things I’d write a whole post about on my blogs. Sometimes, I’d try to make my tweets humorous or thoughtful. Other times, I kept it simple and straightforward.
In the back (or even front) of my mind, I thought, “Who the hell cares?” But I started following others on Twitter, including friends, fellow bloggers, and random strangers. I found some of their tweets interesting. So why not?
Now, I’m just plain hooked. I tweet while waiting for my coffee at Starbucks. I check up on what my friends are up to by seeing what they recently tweeted about. I follow new people who seem intriguing, based on their tweets. I still don’t know why I like it. But I do.
WMAGs, do you Twitter? Follow me and I’ll follow you!
