So it’s with much apprehension that I’ve decided to join Twitter. Twitter is probably one of the most abused silken threads of the massive web we call the Internet. I personally know a few people that post up to and over 10 times a day. And those posts run the gamut from the banal “at the post office” to the constant thinly veiled advertising of their company’s or client’s products. You know who you are, and I’m sorry, you’re not that interesting. There’s only one Christopher Walken.
I’ve decided to join because I’ve been asked: “What are you up to? You haven’t updated your site in over a month. Are you still working on project A for client B, or are you doing something new?” So for those times where I don’t want to write up a blog post or article, a simple 140 character update may suffice.
But, I’m establishing some ground rules for myself. First, I’m only going to post things that I would actually read. These include things like articles I’ve read that I think you might like, or that I’m currently in a tree mounting a time lapse camera for an upcoming movie, oh and here’s the picture. I promise to never post things like “at the coffee shop,” “sleeping,” or “I hate it when it rains, but for those times, I use such and such a product that I’m getting paid to use but you don’t know it.” That may be over the character limit though.
On this site, all my Twitter updates will appear on the right side of the page, or become a follower – @avplumber
