Well, after a rather long time of just not really "getting" Twitter, thanks to my 101 Project (and heavy persuasion from my work colleagues) I've decided to give Twitter a bash. I'm @samdking - look me up!

I guess the aspect of Twitter I've always found a bit hard to comprehend is the fact that all your activity appears on your public facing profile. The idea behind it, I suppose, is that everything you may choose to say, be it a standalone statement, or a quick reply to someone else's tweet is deemed relevant enough that it should be all be put in one place.

it seems a bit of an awkward way to have a conversation, but I suppose this wasn't the original intention of Twitter. The way I understand it, it's supposed to be more of an announcement outlet and way to have all these announcements in one central place.

It all just seems a little odd to me. I'm so old and set in my traditional ways. But who knows? Maybe it will all just fall into place and seem second nature to me within a few weeks. I suppose the only thing left to do is dive in.
