I was introduced to Twitter last year at NECC in Atlanta and jumped in with both feet. Since then I have been as guilty as anyone with going through a period of almost obsession with the constant chatter and immediate feedback it provided … much of it just fun give and take, but the quick advice and support from experts was the real hook.
Some evenings as I worked on other things while having a Twitter window opened, I would be amazed how in just minutes there would be 2 or 3 windows of “Twits” to catch-up on … and at that time I was following less than 100 people. Now I’m close to following 200 and generally I’m noticing fewer Twits overall with spurts at times.
Why is that? I’m thinking the newness has worn off, other applications that have come along or changed are taking peoples time, families are demanding less Twitter/more attention … what else? … or am I wrong and people are Twittering as much as ever?
I know I’ve cut back, but I still find Twitter invaluable. So are we Twittering less and enjoying it more?
