Untwittered

I think I'm giving up on Twitter. The technology is interesting and all, but there just isn't much benefit there for me. I can see why celebreties like it; it's a way for them to keep their fans engaged without actually having to interact with them. But for me, there's just not much Twitter can do that a Facebook status update can't. I really don't need multiple "micro-blogging" platforms.

So I may check in there every once in a while, but I don't think I'll be tweeting much.

I can't find any use for it besides maybe news feeds. . and that's what google reader is for. .

I haven't signed up for it because I can't imagine who would be interested in that many updates from me and I don't know who I'd follow. I'd feel cooler if I did it but it seems sort of pointless

I have to figure out why I keep it. Or why 20-some people, only 10-15 that I know, chose to follow me. *shrug* I'm a techno-slut I guess.
