Twitter - dragging me into 2011

Martin Rye once asked if Twitter was relevant. That was some time ago. I had no opinion either way except to say that I have always liked the concept of bringing people together - "man is a social animal" said both Aristotle and Spinoza, in different times and different ways. The outdoor blogging community is a strong one and populated largely by people of integrity and kindness. Their capacity for generosity and desire to help others knows few boundaries.


Following the advice of someone I trust, I jumped in. Should you care to, the Follow Me link can be found on the right.

  1. Maz, I cannot make my mind up whether I missing out not being on Twitter. Not sure whether I could afford anymore time than I have with work , home, walking, gym and my blog. Interested in comments as to what benefits there are over communication via blogging ( macro - blogging - i.e. Wordpress, if that is the right terminology, in comparison to Twitter being micro blogging)

  2. Despite that fact that I work in mobile comms for Nokia I'm still not either Facebook or Twitter - about time I gave it a go to supplement my blog

  3. Time is one thing and determining whether you want to keep in constant touch with people and meet others is the other. I think it is less about micro-blogging and more about a forum crossed with IM/Chat. It's interesting so far.

  5. I don't know if you miss out, Mark, though Twitter certainly has a great amount of (UL) outdoor blogger, companies and people there to be quickly in touch with, ask and just plain chat! It is great for sharing interesting tidbits and also finding such. I think it needs just as much time as you're willing to invest into it.

  6. I would say, in my limited time on Twitter, I endorse Hendrik's comment.
