I’ve signed up for Twitter, against my wishes (darn you, web team and your eagerness, darn you!).
I’m not enjoying it.
It’s like being in a loud party with lots of people shouting over the top of each other.
I remember back in the day (1999) being involved in a live online Q&A about the millennium bug. A question would come in and while I was typing my response (70wpm) another six questions would come in, along with a couple of pseudo-answers and cross-questions from other people. I’d reply and there would be a flurry of “what was that?” and clarification posts and then it would start over again.
Twitter is like that.
I may be too old for it, but I just find it irritating. But now I’m stuck with it.
Am I doing it wrong?
