Twitter

I recently joined Twitter. I am intrigued and would like to really utilize this form of social media but I am a bit intimidated by it. Maybe I just don't think anyone would be interested in what I'm doing, which essentially, is what Twitter is all about.

Twitter seems to be somewhat of an extended version of Facebook, in that you can do all kinds of elaborate things. They even have a blog. Adam Lisagor, from the kottke blog, appreciates Twitter because it fulfills a primal urge, in him, to be a kid again acting out in class........

"In Twitter, there is a sense of ordered play. There is no judgment. You can talk to your neighbors, stand up and give a report on what you're doing, pass notes, make fart noises if that's your schtick (the highest form of comedy), or sit in the back, observing."

From a social media standpoint, Twitter is a great way to get new ideas and increase your vocabulary, while at the same time experiencing the joy of "peer approval". Peer approval for the longest mouthfart? Now, that's right up my alley.
