tweet no tweet - Echoes of Flavio's Ghost Dreaming

tweet no tweet
Funny thing, this social network thing. Like Twitter: You follow people you consider friends (or closer acquaintances, part of a group you feel part of, identify with, etc). They know you follow them but they don't follow back. It's a little bit like when you walk in a room full of people you know, there is an animated conversation which promptly dies as you walk in.

So finally doing a little clean-up of my Twitter flist, which in case you really hadn't realised yet, is at http://twitter.com/#!/flaviomatani ... little point in following people who you call friends (etc) if the communication is one way only. If what little I may have to say is of no importance to you, maybe I shouldn't spend time following what you may have to say...

As someone who is guilty of that - I used twitter a few times a couple of years ago and don't use it now for posting or reading. So while I have an account it isn't used and sometimes I wish it would just go away.

Well, I clearly wasn't thinking of you when I wrote that:)

It is not difficult to delete a twitter account -unlike Facebook, who make you jump through hoops and at the end of it you've only 'deactivated' it.

I find Twitter useful and, occasionally, interesting, contrary to what I thought at first. And, bizarrely, I don't feel the 140 character limit encourages shallow communication as much as Facebook does. But, as with those things, you can get enmeshed into a web of people's politics or funny thinking. Including of course one's own.
