Really I do. But um, well, I just don’t really get it. And let me just say, I feel like a failure for even admitting that. I mean, I consider myself a bit of a techno-geek.
I remember last year at SXSWi there were Twitter boards placed in the halls and well, I didn’t get it then. And now, right before most of the bloggers went to SXSWi ’08 everyone was all a’twitter about Twitter and again, still nothing on my part.
Many of the business blogs I read rave about Twitter. Even quite a few of the fun, non-biz blogs I read also rave about it. What am I missing? I don’t want to go to BlogHer and be the only one not Twittering. I mean that’s just wrong (not that I’m a sheep that needs to follow the herds, blah, blah – make that bah, bah). But if this is some brilliant form of new networking technology then I need to get a grasp of it. I need to educate the masses (well, at least the masses within the LWL network).
So please, can someone please explain to me, in easy, simple terms…why do I need to get on Twitter and what it will do for me? Is it more than just a waste of time? Oh and where does one find Twitter pals?
I’m a total newbie, I admit it. So I ask you, can anyone please help a blogger gal out?
