So I have a confession to make. I have become addicted to Twitter
, possibly the most flagrant example of the excessive need for constant connection that has arisen out of the Web 2.0 social networking fad yet. Twitter is basically a micro-blog, consisting of posts that are less than 150 characters long, designed to be easily entered and read from a mobile device or instant messenger. It encourages very immediate posting of photos, links or short opinion sound-bites of things like movies you just watched
or live music shows you are currently attending
, allowing other people to keep up with your every thought.
Not sure how interested any of you all would be in this, but I thought it would be pretty cool to get a Clay family twitter group going on there to swap local family news considered too small to warrant a posting on this blog. Here is a link to my account
, which I update from my phone usually a couple of times daily. For extra fun, Barack Obama
has a feed, and if you follow it, they will follow you back.
