It was with...well, barely moderate fanfare that I announced my entry into the world of twitter. And there I was. All twittering. For a grand total of about two days. And then...well, I wandered off. It's kind of not my bag. A lot of very cool folks are into it, but I just can't go there. Part of it is my day job. In my office, my computer basically faces my boss' desk, and we've been busy enough lately that I really have no excuse to be on twitter all day. But it's also me. I found it a bit overwhelming. So many conversations, so many @s and #s and RTs and it's too many people to follow the threads. And it all moves so quickly. I responed to a couple of Travis Bedard's posts here and called it "Travis Bedard Day." I mentioned it on the Twitter and the next thing I know it's all over the Twitter. That's how Twitter seems to be.
I'm a big fan of facebook and I'm a big fan of new technology. But maybe I'm just old school enough to be a little slow on the tweeting. So apologies to my followers. Sorry I can't keep up.
There are really great things happening there, though. So check it out. The future of theater is definitely going on out there.

Ah Travis Bedard Day, the good old days :)
It moves FAST and you eventually give up trying to follow EVERYTHING, but it absolutely not for everyone. I'm glad you stopped in.
But if you stop blogging again so help me...
Oh Twitter. I love the confinement of expression through a set number of words... but I hate the constant monitoring twitter needs. And more often than not I feel I'm observing conversations rather than in them.
No worries, Travis. I'm still here. And I'm still lurking on Twitter.
And, I have to admit, I like to ramble too much when I blog. Way too much. That character limit was killing me.
I hear you on this one. I have a couple of friends who publish their tweets to their FB pages and I feel like I need a "Twitter to English" dictionary to understand anything with all those @s and #s and RTs and stuff. It's not readable to me and I figure if something important is happening in the world, I'll find out in a language I understand.
If you do fine in a blog, there's absolutely no need to Tweet. Just point people to your posts, and that's fine.
