Just when you thought instant messaging, cell phones and Blackberrys were the ultimate form of making yourself available 24-7… along comes Twitter. You’ll note a Twitter box in the bottom right corner of WillVideoForFood.com. We’ll see how long I decide to text message Twitter with my status (“typing blog post while bored on a conference call”).
I haven’t fact checked these, but here are some testimonials Twitter uses:”
- Twitter is on its way to becoming the next killer app.”
– TIME Magazine
- “It’s one of the fastest-growing phenomena on the Internet.”
– New York Times
- “Suddenly, it seems as though all the world’s a-twitter.”
So why in the world would I Twitter? I’m someone who backed into social media via video, and in fact prefers antisocial media. But I had to give it a shot because it’s gaining such notoriety. Kinda like the iPhone I finally returned on Sunday.
What does this have to do with online video? Nothing, really. Except that I think I need to do a video called the Twitter Shitter (“on third wipe”).
