September 19 was a dark day for me… but one that I feared would come soon enough.
I joined Twitter.
And now I am a part of the monster, feeding it like everyone else…
Here’s why I did it:
1) September 19th is my annual “sell out to technology” day. Last year I joined Facebook on Sept. 19.
2) I might as well try it before I knock it even more.
3) I have a book to promote.
I still think it’s silly and quite possibly a sign of the apocalypse, but hey, so are a lot of things.
If you want to “follow me” (is that the phrase?) on Twitter, here’s my url: http://twitter.com/brettmccracken
Things I will tweet include book updates, article links, random thoughts, and other worthwhile things that are under 140 characters. I promise I won’t inundate you with what I’m having for dinner or when I’m feeling sleepy or bored.
If I do, feel free to un-follow me (or whatever you call that). I’ll completely understand.
