Consumatron Twitters

I’m not completely sold on the idea of yet, but it seems that every piece of tech news I read speaks of it as if it is the best invention since pizza slicers. The selling sound bite seems to be that Twitter gets bloggers and other techies away from their computers and out into the world. I’m not sure if using your cell phone text message system as a blogging tool is really getting away from your computer.

Twitter has the potential to enhance public address systems and it is great for alerting friends and acquaintances to breaking information. Its best use will probably be as an independent news breaking/sharing tool.

I’m not sure how Twitter will be of use to me and Consumatron, but I have decided to play around with it, but placing a javascript twitter update in the left-hand side bar of both Consumatron.com and Consumatron.net.

Time will tell if I can find a worthwhile use for it.

If anyone wishes to “follow” me via twitter, here is the link to my twitter page: .

    I am so against twitter I can’t even tell you. The more I hear about it, the less I like the sound of it. I hope it works out for you, but I’m not going there to follow anyone.

    Ironic that being able to document your life and share it with others easier is mistaken for truly experiencing the world. I wonder if we are going to get to a point where we cannot enjoy something unless we see it through a lens, and then only if we then show what we’ve recorded to an audience.

    It is addictive to use Twitter but I haven’t found that anyone really reads it.

    first you have a blog, then a vlog, and now, up to the minute updates on what you’re doing.
    self-absorbed much?

    Just joking, you know I love you. But really, is this necessary?

    I’m not sure it *is* necessary. That’s why I’m playing around with it. (Thanks for implying that the blog and vlog *are* necessary though)

    It sure comes in handy for status updates… like when my internet is down.

    I’m still not addicted or convinced on it’s everyday uses though.
