I have long resisted the pull of Twitter. Even as it gained mainstream notoriety, I didn’t see any point in getting an account. I was fine with facebook as my only source of online social networking.
But then one of my favorite basketball blogs got a twitter account, and I saw a way that I could use twitter to expand my semi-psuedonymous physics presence on the internet.
So come follow me on twitter!
My tweets (twitter status updates, for the uninitiated) will follow a similar focus to my blog, but of course in less detail. This will be great, because I often have half-baked ideas that I’d like to share in the blog, but don’t really warrant a full post. If I have a bunch of them, I can make a “bullets” post, but I usually just forget most of them. Now I have an outlet for those ideas that take 140 characters or less. We’ll see how this experiment turns out.
If you’re already on twitter, what should I know? Who should I be following? Let me know in the comments.
