‘In defense of Twitter’


General Culture

Over at bldgblog, Geoff posted a smart defense of Twitter (go check it out, especially if you read “Maureen Dodd’s [sic!] brain-dead editorial in yesterday’s New York Times”). Speaking of which, I have been wondering whether Twitter could be used for something, so I “restored” my Twitter account (yeah, it’s true: when you try to delete/close/whatever an account, Twitter never actually deletes it - scary, eh?). I promise I won’t post links to my blog posts or what I’m eating or doing (for reasons which should be pretty obvious). Instead, I’ll post mostly quick thoughts or “rejects” (stuff that somehow didn’t make it onto the blog, for whatever reason). It’s an experiment; we’ll see how it goes.
