So finally, I’ve hopped on the twitter bandwagon. I was avoiding to signup for the service for a long time, ignoring all the praises and accolades from bloggers. Its odd how services doing something so basic like ‘What Are You Doing Now?’ becomes a rage. And would you want to tell that to everyone, anyway?
There are almost a million people twittering around the world now (not counting other similar services like ‘jaiku‘ and ‘pownce‘). Its still used mostly by hi-techies. Probably its the ‘presence’ factor that works for techno-enthusiasts, who keep staring at digital displays all the time- PC, phones, TV, PSP…
Like wikipedia says about Tweety– “Tweety is, for the most part, a good-natured character happily spending life in his cage or a nest.”
Now I’ll have to write something witty and play twitty… another burden of technology :(
