Because it’s free. It’s a message utility. Those are attractive features to me. First, it’s free and second, I can utilize it to send messages to friends and followers(?) . You know the thing you use to update (friends and followers) synchronously. The vehicle to tell the world, “Hey, I just woke up and I haven’t brushed my teeth yet!” as if that matters.
There were geeky observations that this communication instrument is being abused and improperly utilized because some twitterers (?) just use it to market their blog posts, or articles. They say that is unjustifiable. “Errr.. sirs.. am guilty, your honors!” I actually use the darn tool most of the time to update (friends and followers) about my recent posts and articles. Just like that.
Because I cannot think of a sane reason why people would be interested in my daily activities. “Sirs, I am not interesting. I am not MJ. I am not Madonna. I am not Aubrey Miles (who is following me, and my kids told me that it is not Aubrey Miles he he, that it is so easy to fake Twitter accounts – “how true, how true?”).”
And because I am guilty, I tried a different approach. I tried to read the updates of the friends and followers(?). And it’s worth it! I discovered great finds, I mean twits:
from reyna_elena – New blog post: Freddie Aguilar says Charice and Arnel Pineda proved that Filipinos are “monkeys”
from DoreenRulz – Is this shadow the ghost of Michael Jackson in Neverland | The Daily Telegraph
While maybe some of the twitters find the whole activity boring, try to browse and click. You will discover things that might be of interest to you. You’ll find interesting blog pages, too!
