I logged into Twitter about a year back. And for a year, it sported one message : ‘Am back’. As soon as communication lines got restored ( a.k.a internet connection at home), i got more curious about twitter !!
The tagline on the site read interesting. As i slanted my head and read it through : “Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?”
Of course, ‘What are you doing’ is a de rigueur question which takes many avatars like ‘wazzup’ if you are a dude, ‘whats new?’ / ‘hows business’if you are in the corporate world. That’s such a straight question.
The next time someone is going to ask me that question, I retain the right to guide him or her to this space. There is greater resolve to stay more active on Twitter !! Especially after discovering the joy of uploading from my phone!!
I was telling someone who was all set to post a three page article on a blog, that blog posts ( in my opinion, of course) should be like adfilms. Crisp story, well told. In a short 300 – 400 words. With Twitter the ground shifts further : Its more like writing haiku ! Whatever you can in 140 letters!!
If editorials were test cricket, then blog posts are one day. And twitter, you guessed it right : 20. 20 !!
I guess writing on Twitter can be fun ! Just as I discovered today. Do take a look at the twitter box on the side !! Finally, some place in this blog will witness activity and stay updated.
Atleast a twittery wittery bit !
