I am not perfect and I like to remind folks of that fact on a regular basis. Back in March 2007 when I wrote this, I had given up on Twitter. How wrong I was … in fact, a lot of my news comes from Twitter first today. One thing I was correct about, it can be a huge time suck if you let it.
Here is the original article:
I tried Twitter. I really did give it a go. More than I anticipated I would. But it’s not for me.
Don’t get me wrong, I won’t be pulling my account, just won’t be using Twitterific and apart from once or twice a day will not be checking messages.
While it is fun, I don’t know how anyone can get any work done while it is on. Far too distracting.
For those who say it is the next big thing? Not convinced. I haven’t seen a single worthwhile message, not a single scoop, not any content of note that I couldn’t get through another channel with more context and depth.
I’ll keep one eye on progress but if I want to chat with friends I will do it through Skype and IM.
Have you tried Twitter? Am I wrong? Let me know in the comments …
