I'm hardly the world's fastest adopter of new websites. Video game technology, maybe, but certainly not new websites. Despite that, I'm probably aware of their existence significantly before most people are - just that I refuse to join in until much later, usually after their worth has been proven. Most things I do usually have roughly a delay of a year - I refused joining most friend networking sites (yes, even friendster and facebook) for quite a while after I got the first e-mail asking me to join. The dangerous things my friends do, giving out e-mails and passwords simply because someone asked for it.
The latest bandwagon I've jumped on is Twitter, and tweeting. Not to say I'm not familiar with the idea - but I wanted to wait a while. My blog did have a short rants section for a while, a change that dates back to more than a year ago.
I haven't quite decided how much tweeting I'm going to do, but the content of my tweets are certainly not the same as things that go into short rants - but I recognise that there is an overlap - and there is a good chance that it'll replace my short rants somewhat. I've also become particularly cautious, making sure that there is a backup of my tweets on the blog server too - as well as a weekly digest of my tweets - so that in case twitter goes down for whatever reason, I don't lose those precious amounts of ramblings and rantings.
I'm going to try and do it right and try to tweet at least once every 24 hours - but we all know how well I do with schedules and routines that aren't study or work. We'll see how long it lasts.
