Well that didn’t last long. Just two days into my self imposed Twitter exile I instinctively tweeted upon news of the updated MacBook Pros; only to realise a few moments later that Twitter was off limits. In interweb parlance I am full of “FAIL”.
What I found in my few Twitter free days was that I didn’t miss it as much as expected. I didn’t have cravings or withdrawal symptoms despite going cold turkey. I found that I can take it or leave it and I’ve decided to take it.
Twitter has become a part of my day, a part of my way of doing things. It’s a source of news and review; a focussed, personalised mini RSS feed. If I have a question Twitter will often closely follow Google when I’m looking for an answer, and those answers have the added weight of peer review or authority.
So no more of this Twitter tooing and froing.
Now I just need to find a way of removing Gowalla and Foursquare tweets without un-following people.
