Over the past few weeks I have been playing around with Twitter, and I can’t say I have it figured out yet, or that I spend too much time trying. I have discovered a somewhat useful practice, though, that entertains me if no one else. Every day I read the news and take notes about subjects and personalities I am following, and when thoughts are coherent enough I enjoy turning this into a blog post. Un-coherent thoughts, though, as well as first impressions, work well with Twitter. These micro-musings can be found on the right hand column of this blog, as well as with anyone who might deign to ‘follow’ me. It seems like a narcissistic world, but that can be said of blogging as well, I suppose. The legitimate hope is that those interested in the topics I read might be able to read along with me if I highlight an article.
If you do, please enjoy. And if you like, here is our handle: jnjcasper. Ironically, and with a degree of coy self-satisfaction, I can’t even offer instructions on what to do with that to follow me, but those of you interested probably already know.
Update: Well, that wasn’t too hard to figure out. To the right is a simple button to press. I guess I have to lose the coyness now. Oh well.
