To tweet or not to tweet

We're on day, what, two, of the Twitter experiment?
There are pros and cons to it, of course, but so far i must admit that the pro side is winning.
Here goes...

Cons:
-I don't really know what to "tweet"
-People i don't know follow me and, unlike here on Blogger, it makes me think they expect me to say something... interesting?
-It's really fucking confusing
-It's called Twitter!

Pros:
-I found a really sweet iPhone app already and i do love my apps
-Celebrities!
As expected the celeb and geek information floating around this universe is amazing.
It seems that some celebrities (i'm talking about you, Kevin Smith) don't do much at all besides tweeting (seriously, is that a word?)

So far i've learned that Buffy's Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof had their six year wedding anniversary, that Firefly's Christina Hendricks got married (and that she was even introduced to her husband by Vincent Kartheiser from Angel) and that Neil Gaiman is in China right now.
All good stuff, certainly enough geek love here to justify joining the madness.
The best, and possibly geekiest, thing happened today when Nathan Fillion (who is, like, one of the awesomest dudes ever) posted this:
"Anyone catch the obscure Firefly reference in Castle just now? 6 min in?"
And got this reply from friggin Wil Wheaton (who is also funny and awesome, by the way):
"
For a lot of us Browncoats, there is no such thing as "an obscure Firefly reference." (Love everything you do, BTW.)"

I almost od'ed on the geek goodness right there!

So, for now, i'm staying, but don't bother following me there, apparently i have nothing to say!

A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do!

  1. Link your blog to twitter using TwitterFeed.com. :)

    Although at the beginning Twitter feels like you just need to post "I'm eating lunch" or something equally banal, that feeling passes. The best and most interesting way to use twitter, IMO, is to share links and information - build up followers that have similar interests to you and your twitter feed becomes a torrent of interesting little snippets of info, links and discussions.

    S'awesome.

  2. Sounds like you reeeally like Twitter Matt!
    I guess it can be pretty awesome if people, like you, use it to share interesting information.

    So far i find it a good resource for Buffyverse information and that's what's keeping me there at the moment.
    But later i may get into posting there too, at least i hope i will.
