Fucking Twitter

Alright, I gave in and got a Twitter account because I'm a connectivity whore.

What is Twitter? It's like blog-lite. Any time anything I think even remotely interesting goes down, I can post an update to Twitter and you can see it. As they say on the site:

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?


As I understand it, either Facebook or Friendster has a similar function available. So it's like Facebook-lite, too. It would seem that there is a Facebook client for Twitter, through which your Twitter updates, and those of your friends, can be followed directly from your Facebook page.

Why did I get a Twitter account? Besides the aforementioned whoredom, it struck me this evening, when I came home a good five hours later than I expected to, that perhaps my roommates might be interested in keeping up with where I am and what I'm doing.

But I imagine when I do something interesting -- such as going to NAB next week, or when I'm on location of a production -- occasional updates might be notable.

You can find my page at twitter.com/DorkmanScott. If you're already a Twitter member, let's "follow" each other. And if you're not, come hop on the bandwagon.

Would you believe that I joined Twitter last week in an endeavor to encourage more chapters of a webnovel? Wow.

I spose if I actually follow someone I care about, I might have to update or turn on e-mail notifications. Expect a following. :)

Your posting title sums up my feelings about Twitter, yet I too am on it. Why? Beats the hell out of me.

But I've just discovered your blog (having been a fan of RvD and an illustrious Executive Soundtrack Producer of RvD2, and more recently having jumped up and down when I saw you in the Weezer video) -- and yeah, I'll follow you.
