I’ve finally gone and joined Twitter, though it did take a while. I am, oddly, a mix of both technophile and technophobe and also heavily cynical towards bandwagons and the next big things.
On the technophile side I’ve been using computers since the early 80’s and the internet since the early 90s – my current computer is something of a beast, specifically bought as a high end gaming computer. I am also always interested in hearing of new scientific and technologial discoveries.
On the ‘phobe side, it took me the longest time to get a mobile phone, and then only because I needed it for work. Even now it is still an extremely basic model – can’t take photos or movies or has colour screen or anything like that. Likewise things like Facebook, Twitter, etc I tend to sheer away from.
But I have been convinced that Twitter may be a useful tool to have for my writing so I am giving it a go.
There is a very basic feed of it on the sidebar – apparently wordpress doesn’t support the Twitter badge properly, so at some stage I will have to look into ways to improve the look of what is there.
Anyhow, feel free to peruse it, even though there may not be much happening on it for a while.
