I can't remember how long I've been using Twitter. At least a year now I think. Initially, I found most of the people I follow through The Homeless Guy. Meaning they lived in Nashville. So when the Tennessee Titans played, I got mainly NFL theme Twitters. That was a drag and a small minority of Nashvillians who twitted a lot filled my Twitter screen. That got old quick.
I mainly wanted a way to micro blog. I didn't much care for the social chat aspects. I just wanted to share what was going on in between the lines of my meatier blog posts. You will find people that spend all day using Twitter as a chat client. Tiresome to me. I wanted to be able to Twit about Maggie and not take up a whole blog post to do it.
Lately, I found Amy Palko from Scotland. She's a busy Twitter person and her following just continues to grow. I checked out her followers and found all kinds of new and interesting people to follow. My Twitter tweets went from mundane to interesting overnight. Now, I am hearing about the Alps, or holidays in Spain. The weather in Britain, and life overseas. Twitter is interesting again to me and I needed it. I was about to quit, tired of my Nashville following.
