Reluctant Twitterer?

29 July 2009 5,960 views 2 Comments

I feel slightly ashamed to admit that I’ve signed up on Twitter. I’ve heard a lot of people raving about it, so I though I would give it a go.

Until now, my impression of “Twittering” has been that it’s an egocentric past-time for people who should probably go out and get a life. (A perfect fit, you might say for someone in CG and who has their website named after them). But you know what? It’s actually quite a lot of fun and potentially useful.

It seems that people are tending to use it, less to document the minutiae of their dull existence (although inevitably there will always be a few), but more about letting people know about little snippets of information, cool resources, organising social events, and as a replacement for messaging services.

So what will I twitter? My intentions are to post any random snippets that I don’t think are suitable for posting on this blog, and to chat with like-minded folk. If that sounds like your cup of tea, then you’re welcome to join me.

    I didn’t think twitter was worth much either in the beginning but as you build a following you begin to see a lot of benefits including traffic and building relationships with people in your industry.

    I have a bit of other uses for Twitter as well but they’re more experimental than anything else.

    Nothing to be ashamed about.

    Hi Jay,
    Yes, the more I’ve used it, the more I’m starting to see its value.

    I think it’s a great way to give people insight into what life is like in post-production; it seems to be turning into a production diary. I think it’s a great alternative to a blog, especially since I can’t go into a lot of details on what I’m working on due to confidentiality agreements.

    I’m not so ashamed to admit I twitter anymore as I think I’m starting to enjoy it 🙂
