So, I’m on Squidoo.
I’ve got a MySpace page.
I’m on Facebook. (Just barely. There seem to be fish in my aquarium and plants in my terrarium. And I have no idea how they got there.)
Now, I’m on Twitter.
And I’m curious to hear from you. How, if at all, do you use Twitter?
I’ve been using it to pretend that my Followers are my Song Coaches. I tell them when I go write songs for my next CD. Then, I tell them when I return from my songwriting session. They hold me accountable. (At least I pretend they do. They’re probably too busy trying to figure out Facebook to pay attention.)
But as for being connected all the time to Twitter –
I can imagine no greater distraction from creative focus. (That’s just me. I need complete disconnection from the internet when I write songs.)
Seth Godin aptly called it Noise Creep.
What about you? Twitter? (Or Facebook? Or Squidoo? Hub Pages? Forums?) How do you use them?
Here’s why I ask:
During the blog conference this past weekend – as each speaker was doing their thing – the people at the tables were Tweeting about the conference. They were Tweeting each other, and all their Followers who weren’t at the conference. Opinions, descriptions, snippets in rapid fire during each presentation.
I whispered to someone “Twitter is the opposite of Eckhart Tolle.” She looked at me like I was nuts.
Maybe I am?
