I had to admit I really did not understand Twitter when it first came out. Perhaps that is because it was explained to me so poorly. I could not understand why this was such a powerful "Revolution"
When I jumped on and looked around I found various statements such as, "I love baked beans", and "What I would not do for some decent mustard!" and lots of political mumbo jumbo which resembled more like graffiti.
I lost interest until I did some Googling on my name. I was stunned when I found some of my ramblings posted as actual Google listings! Thank goodness I wasn't pontificating on baked beans and political rants. Someone's boredom had become documentable "evidence" in a very short time.
Luckily for me I was writing about some pretty profound things. I was commmenting on things that I found interesting and citing authors, books, happenings and general topics of interest. I wonder how many other people out there actually know that their mind numbing observations will be set in stone...
... for eternity?
