I have a confession to make. I’ve recently become a twitterer. It’s true. I never thought it would happen to me — but it has … and I’m loving it! Even more amazingly, I’ve found that I’ve become somewhat of a Twitter “evangelist” — spreading the good word about Twitter to professional friends and colleagues far and wide. (Life has a way of surprising you sometimes, doesn’t it?!?).
It turns out that preconceived notions are, well, preconceived notions. When I first heard about this thing called “Twitter,” I thought it was just about the shallowest, most useless thing I could imagine. I mean, really, who could possibly be interested in getting minute-by-minute updates on the doings of their favorite celebrities — where they had lunched, if they just took the dog for a walk, etc.? It’s true: Twitter does have a huge number of fans who use it for this purpose (which I still think is one of the silliest things going).
