I did the unthinkable (for me, not at all unthinkable for most others) and set up a Twitter account. I’ve been ragging on it and thinking it’s ridiculous for a long time but I never actually tested it out for myself, which is a little unfair.
I joined up on Thursday and followed a handful of bloggers I like. My first impression:
Ahh! So many updates!
A lot of people are quite prolific and seeing new posts come up every 30 seconds was a little overwhelming. I’m sure the fact that Blizzcon was happening exacerbated this. I found it a little difficult to filter the stuff I didn’t care about and pick out the things I was interested in.
I also had some good experiences. I posted about losing my VuhDo panels and almost instantly had people respond with helpful suggestions. That was pretty nifty.
I’m still not completely sold on this, but I’ll continue to make an effort. If you’d like, follow me @Jasyla_
I have one request though. If I ever use the word tweet in anything but a sarcastic and mocking tone, please slap me.
