I'm just trying you out to see what everyone's talking about.
Sorry. I was playing with Twitter, and it asked me what I was doing.
Ooo. I've got a tweet.
Brothertobias@ nudrig2 No, I'm not famous. Although I like to think I have a modest following in the world of scripophily.
Brothertobias@ nudrig2 Not at all. It was a pleasure talking to you.
Another tweet. That's two tweets already.
Brothertobias@heavenlytwinny Thank you. It's early days. What about you?
Brothertobias@heavenlytwinny I do find the 140 word limit a constraint when trying to address issues of any complexity, especially when there is a moral or ethical dimen
Brothertobias@wedekindboy Isn't 0825 an odd time to be eating pesto?
Brothertobias@heavenlytwinny Ahaha :)
Brothertobias@wedekindboy Ah. Guadalajara. I understand. Wasn't thinking. No, I don't think I'm that Brother Tobias; I never taught at a mission school.
Brothertobias@wedekindboy No, really. I've never even been to Mexico.
Brothertobias@wedekindboy Well quite. That must have been very painful, and you have every right.
I have to go now.
I dunno. I guess it's like marmite. It has a strange fascination. Yes, I visited Stephen Fry's tweets, of course I did. And thence to Sandi Toksvig's sister's. It was a learning experience (I didn't know Sandi Toksvig had a sister). And snooped in on some familiar bloggers, whose one-sided chatter was witty and entertaining, like listening to shiny people at the next table, wishing they were your friends.
But it's a bit like Blogger with just the comments and no blogs. I don't want to start collecting celeb responses like tiny trophies. And just tweeting and being tweeted would become a full time occupation. It's as if networking has become the end, not a means.
I admire anyone who can blog and twitter. So many balls to keep up. Some of my favourite bloggers have taken to Twitter. You know who you are. But I hope we who are left sedately in the blogosphere don't lose you altogether.
