As if there were any doubt, my true nerd nature is about to come through. Some of my admissions in this post will be embarrassing, but it gets my point across about Twitter.
I freely admit that I am a Trekkie. I can usually name most of The Original Series episode titles having seen just a few seconds of one. I am not, however, a “Trekker”. I don’t have a Star Fleet uniform in my closet (although I did have a model phaser when I was a teenager), nor to I dress up like a Klingon and attend conventions.
So what does this have to do with Twitter? I’ll get to that in a moment. I signed up for Twitter as a matter of convenience. It was a simple way of updating my blog and Facebook from one location. I didn’t really have any intention of “following” anyone on Twitter, but soon I got tired of looking at my own updates. I added a few friends and locals that I knew from other social networking sites.
