I’ve been wrestling with Twitter questions lately. What is it? How am I supposed to use it? Am I using it right? How do I read it all?
And then John Scalzi liberated me. There isn’t a right way to use Twitter. There’s simply what works for me—and for you. And those don’t have to be the same.
So here’s how I use Twitter.
- It’s a condiment here on Nagoonberry. Thoughts and experiences, sprinkled on the right side of the page.
- It’s a way to track experiences, to encourage myself to pay attention, to focus on small moments.
- I check in with a few people through Twitter—some I know in real life, some I know only online, and some are one-sided relationships (I follow them, they have no idea who I am)
- When I get tired of being stuck in Facebook Land, I head over to Twitter to see what’s happening there.
And that’s it. Very much a work in progress. How about you? How do you use Twitter?
