While I’ve been aware of Twitter since it began, I never took the leap until now. To start with, I’m not narcissistic enough to think that small snippets of my personal life interest anyone but a few close friends. I also try to rebel in the face of the information overload we live in, attempting to get rid of the continuous sources of distraction, and dislike the idea of immediate gratification at all costs.
I decided to finally join Twitter nevertheless because: 1) I intend to write about stuff that interests me (and possibly other people) but that doesn’t necessarily answer the question “What are you doing?”; 2) I can briefly talk about programming, but also about other subjects without having to write a whole blog post about them; 3) I noticed that very interesting discussions take place on Twitter, so, in a way, I was missing out something valuable.
