I created my first Twitter account about half a year ago. I updated it every 5 minutes and in between I kept hitting the refresh button to see if there was any news from me friends. I liked the concept of Twitter but it just took too much of my time, so I decided to stop and delete my account. After reading We Travel in Tribes I got interested again. As a social network I like Twitter because it keeps me up to date on what my friends are doing. But it’s more, like Rands points out:
With this in mind I created a new Twitter account and added some friends to my list. I hope I can control my twitter time better then last time :-) This is me: http://www.twitter.com/hertog
I want to know more people, and sure, it’s interesting to see what they’re up to, but what I really want to know is what is going on inside their heads with a minimum of fuss. I want to see how they see the world. This is why I follow people on Twitter.
