My Week Of Twitter

I began my week of Twitter very sceptically.  It seemed to be a completely useless services.  I didn’t understand why people needed to update their status every time they did something.  I’m the kind of person who checks facebook once a week and all most never updates my status.  I found myself frustrated.  Why did I have to do this stupid thing.  I had things to do, places to go and people to talk to face to face.  But I needed to contact Dr. Nixon, so I sent her a tweet on line and she got back to me within the hour.  It was impresive  how fast our communication wasand I started to think that it was a good tool for that specific purpose.  I still didn’t like it.  The website seemed utterly useless in any other respect.  I was angry that I had to do a week of this, my work, class and rehearsal schedule made it very hard to update.  When I found time to actually tweet, I found myself forcing useless statements that I knew no one cared about.  But I saw everyone else was communicating and telling each about their day.  I also found that I was being fallowed by people I hadn’t spoken to in a long time.  One day in class I saw that the student in front of me was fallowing Paula Dean.  She was thrilled by this, and I was happy for her.  This is when it occurred to me.  These interacts are what bring us together, what allows us to be a part of each others lives.  I don’t think that I’m the kind of person who is apt at using social networking sites.  I don’t use them very often, but I know that there are many that do and that is why I respect them.  I guess what I’m saying is that I’ll keep using Twitter.
