Futile and Witless? Count Me In…

I’ve always thought Twitter was a fairly futile and witless waste of time if I’m honest, but an online acquaintance of mine – let’s call him Fanshaw, but let’s pronounce it ‘Featherstonehaugh’ for big laughs – is incredibly enthusiastic. This afternoon he convinced me to give it a proper shot.

He said the way to do it is to start following lots of people you know or kind of know or would like to know. He said most of them will start following back. And then every time you have a pearl to toss, or of course every time you blog something new, you twitter it, and all your followers come running, desperate to worship at your hem. And they may even bring some friends along too.

So that’s what I’m doing.

I’m owning up to it here so it doesn’t seem so cynical and self-serving.

If you’re on Twitter yourself, please follow me immediately. It'll give me the greatest pleasure to toss the occasional pearl in your lovely face.

Ahhh Daisy stole my line! I've added you, although my twittering tends to be fairly mundane and dull.

Have you been hooked up with a BrightKite account yet? It's still in beta testing mode so you have to be invited. Twitter is "this is what I'm doing right now" and BrightKite is "this is where I am and what's happening here right now" and the two mesh together. I'll send you an invite just now, see what you think.
