Honestly, I can hardly believe I’m doing this. From the outside, Twitter seems to lack the substance I usually crave. And I hardly need another on-line addiction activity. I was spurred into action this morning by Dustin Luther announcing on Twitter that he’s left Move.com. Seems important. Best of luck to you, Dustin, I look forward to following your next venture — on Twitter, I guess.
Post hoc updates:
Greg Swann quoting Hugh Macleod — “I guess my point is, if you’re one of these people considering giving up on blogging in exchange for paying more attention to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and MySpace, or whatever they throw at us mere mortals, bear in mind you are giving up on something rather unique and wonderful. But I would say that.”
Steve Rubel — “The lesson here is to never rest on your laurels. Know what your skills are/aren’t but don’t be afraid to test new ground. When I first tried Twitter I didn’t get it. Now I don’t know how I live without it and it helps me create better, more meaningful content here while also driving my brand.”
