I lasted less than a week without Twitter.
What is this hold it has on me? I can only describe it as feeling like I was constantly craving “something.”
I was craving news.
I rarely have time to watch the news and I haven’t read a newspaper in years (sorry Writer, I know this is your bread & butter) and even reading news online has become a luxury I rarely indulge in. I do, however, have a few minutes here and there throughout my day to pull out my phone and read news tweets.
Twitter is right up my alley: each tweet is restricted to 140 characters so the writing has to be concise. Bonus: many tweets contain links to the full-blown articles if I’m interested (or have the time) to pursue them.
While I can’t promise mind-blowing, thought-provoking tweets each time I post, if you’re interested, you can follow me at twitter.com/stillvarado.
