Twitter....yawn. Sorry. Just so tired of it. For years twitter was a fledgling thing and now that Obama and other celebs do it it's all of a sudden the "in" thing.
One of my podcasts (TWiT) was talking about how Lance tweeted his broken collar bone before the news broke and how important that was for anyone that is a fan. Bunk ! I'm a fan of old "Voldemort" and I heard about it pretty soon after it happening via regular news feeds.
Sure it has a lot of potential for notifying users about truly important things but wading through all the narcissistic crap ain't for me. But then again I'm a old cranky geek.
Some are cool others are not that interesting. It's neat to 'get a little behind the scene information. In the last stage of the TOC Jonathon Vaughtners was tweeting from the team car, giving a play by play from the car and throwing out some team tactics. One past went something like, "Z's break didn't hold, but might try and send another rider off the front." Couple minutes later, another rider, forget who, tried for a breakaway.
Some people use it to much. I know one pro who overuses it, but let's just say I'm not interested in the fact that you are picking up your kids from school. Yes, give me insights into your life but I don't need to know everything.
