For whatever reason, Twitter just never really appealed to me. The idea of limiting myself to 140 characters seemed, well, too limiting. And my first few skims of Twitter had too high of a junk to good stuff ratio.
But after finally dragging myself to give it a shot, finding a few people to follow, and installing Canary so I can read what’s being said without having to actually go to Twitter I’m starting to convert. The ability to have a constant stream of new stuff to read is addictive. Canary pretty much stays on as long as I’m online.
And I’ve even started tweeting a little myself, although I still feel a little stupid using the word “tweeting.”
