O.K. – so I’ve officially become a "Twit".
I’ve had my "Twitter" account for about 9 months now and didn’t have a clue as to what to do with it.
Two weeks ago I jumped into the fray and gave the world tacit approval to stalk my every move, read my fleeting thoughts and, more or less, participate in "my daily experience". (Wasn’t this what my Blog was supposed to do? And the "LinkedIn"?)
Twitter is the "now experience" on the internetspreading like an uncontrolled virus throughout the world – easy to get but a nasty little number to get rid of.
I had the good people at LexBlog set up my little "Tweet Box" (off to the left there) so that anyone who wished to live vicariously through my experiences could get a glimpse of my inner thoughts and observations – such as they are..raw and unvarnished.
Amazingly, to date, about 50 or so people have chosen to "follow me" in my daily escapades and glean what (little) wisdom I can offer throughout the day. Talk about pressure to perform!
For those of you who don’t understand the "Twitter Phenomena" let me just say "You either get it or you don’t". I won’t even attempt to explain the attraction or fascination the world has with this new form of viral communication; it reminds me things like the "Pet Rock" or CB Radios of yesteryear – a unique experience for many but a puzzle for the rest (the sane world).
My challenge is trying to get a complete thought out in 140 characters (or less) and have it make a modicum of sense. Originally I thought it was 140 WORDS or less.
You have NO IDEA what a challenge this has been for me! I’m not known for brevity… not by a long shot! Especially when I’m trying to be profound. (Note: Twitter is not a vehicle for (my) profound thoughts).
So, please, choose to follow me if you wish (like I don’t have enough pressure to produce in my life!) – just click on the "Follow Me" box there on the left, or, check out my current "Tweets" on the "About" page on this site to see if there’s anything in my life you’d like to share in. (Test drive my "Tweets" so to speak).
And, if you have an interest in anything to do with presentations, the use of graphics ,audio and video in trial, or eDiscovery I’ll try to inform, expound upon and relate.. all in 140 characters or less.
I promise that I’ll try not to disappoint and will hopefully enrich your empty day somehow.. all in 140 characters or less.
Oh, and feel free to comment on this site (no limits as to characters!)
