Back when Twitter first came out several years ago, I swore it off and relegated it to the ranks of MySpace (which still scares me to this day) and Facebook (of which I admit that I was an early adopter, but which, in my opinion, has since become unnecessarily bloated with all manner of random games and useless apps). Despite having blogged on and off (though mostly off, admittedly) for the past 10 years or so, I never really caught on to the idea of keeping track of what my friends are doing every second of every day, much less the idea of announcing what I’m doing every second of every day. Call me old-fashioned.
So what possessed me finally to register for a Twitter account? Well… I realized that Feedburner could automatically post my blog entries there, so anyone who wants to follow me can do it without me ever actually having to touch the thing!
