In just two days, this Bee will be leaving the hive for some R & R. Is a vacay something one should tweet about? I'm totally sold on Facebook -- love it, in fact. I adore seeing what people are doing and thinking and I like how I can drop into the app on my phone anytime I am bored. But I haven't made the jump to Twitter. How about you guys?
I haven't used Twitter yet, and I'm a little skeptical. Isn't there something kinda weird about sending missives to digest an experience in the midst of that experience? I mean, here in the NW, we have a church that encourages its tweeters to tweet during and about the sermon. How are they supposed to absorb the sermon if they are tweeting in the midst of it, though? And what about other daily life experiences -- is it valuable to be tweeting about shopping while you're shopping? Unless maybe your friend is shopping across town and gets a tip from your tweet?
Isn't there something cool about having a unique experience and then thinking about it and writing something about it? Maybe we are becoming a society addicted to instant reaction -- needing to get the word out about something before the something is even over... I'm not sure, so I'm asking you guys: How many of you use Twitter to either tweet or follow other tweeters? Does it lessen or heighten the experience of the tweet topic for you? What kinds of things do you think are tweetable?
Hugs and tweets,
