I’m not going to quit Twitter, but I doubt that I will spend time tweeting nor will I assemble a following. I can get all the important public safety and transportation tweets, the vast majority of which do not concern me. If I need to know about something going on in the neighborhood I can look it up. I have Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family and email for more serious communication.
The individual tweets I have seen so far are pretty inane. I tried to follow “discussions” of a cable series I’m watching, but more inanity. I suppose all those tweets are valuable to someone.
I was interested in using Twitter as an alternative communications system in the event of a disaster, but that would require all my neighbors to deal with the learning curve. If I have something to tell them and it’s really important, I will knock on their doors.
