On Twitter

I’ve been against Twitter since the beginning. I still don’t get it really. I find blogs and IMs a much better way to communicate. I think it’s a fashion that will just pass eventually, just like MySpace, or Orkut, or whatever. I’ve been vocal against it too. But Twitter found a loophole to draw me over.

jbqueru: Yeah, I’m crazy ๐Ÿ™‚ http://twitter.com/jbqueru
Eugenia: why? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
Eugenia: I want a divorce
jbqueru: :*
***jbqueru tweets about that… or not ๐Ÿ˜€
Eugenia: now I HAVE to make an account to follow you, otherwise I won’t be seen as a supportive wife
jbqueru: You can just RSS me in your favorite reader
Eugenia: I don’t use RSS

So if you want to follow my shorter rants, follow me here: http://twitter.com/EugeniaLoli

I’ve been hearing how great Twitter was since before it hit the big time (blame Leo Laporte and friends for that). Although I’ve read the occasional Twitter post (tweet ?) I still wouldn’t mind if it disappeared completely. Most people find it hard to regularly post to their blog and eventually give up – I wonder how long the average Twitter user lasts ? :p

I think there is a more longevity to tweeting over blogging due to tweeting being easier and more convenient.

What a perfect little web 2.0 couple :).

I’ve been using Twitter for about a year and then some. It absolutely rocks! I keep up with people I see regularly, people I see seldomly and people I’m never likely to meet. A few friends and I use it as a very loose IM to send updates/comment on each others lives and it is extremely simple to use.

Plus every device under the sun has at least one Twitter client these days. Even my old discarded SE K800i had a Java based one. You can even use SMS. It is the simplicity that makes it better than blogging.
