Giving Twitter a shot

I created a Twitter account a while back to follow a few people I know, but I never really got into it myself because of Facebook.  I’m going to give it another go-round, and this time I’m not protecting my tweets.  Follow me at @jfw3i if you’re so inclined.  You’ll get updates every time I post here as well (you know, every six months or so).

  1. I hope the Twitter account doesn’t mean you’ll stop posting on here as well. Then again, I suppose it would be quite a feat if you could figure out how to get the weekly Braves Check to 140 characters or less.

  2. Unfortunately, I have neither been regularly posting long-form nor updating Twitter until this weekend. I’m sure I’ll still drop in to share things from time to time, but I think the days of a weekly 1,000-word Braves (or HU) epic are probably over for the foreseeable future.

    I’m liking Twitter because I can piggyback off of what other people are saying that I agree with. Since I don’t have the time right now to write much on my own, it still allows me to have a voice, even if it’s a quiet one.

    Unprotecting my tweets (they were protected prior to this weekend) will allow folks to subscribe via RSS if they so choose. Just click the heading to the right that says “Twitter (@jfw3i)” and you can grab the RSS feed at the bottom-right on my Twitter page.

    It would be great to get some more friends on there (hint, hint). My Facebook friends will already see some of the updates through the Selective Tweets FB app and be able to comment there if they so desire.

    I like your Braves Check idea, by the way. I might have to give that a shot if it doesn’t completely devolve into indecipherable text-speak.

  3. I think a Braves check on Twitter would probably turn into the baseball version of Phil Steele’s depth charts.

    And yeah, hint taken. I’m both a procrastinator and a troglodyte, which is a bad combination when it comes to me setting up an account on “the Twitter.” But as soon as I do, I’ll, uh, follow you, or subscribe, or whatever it is you kids do these days. Just as soon as I get done reading my newspaper and sorting my VHS tapes.
