Twitter: It's Alive!

Steve Woolf writes, Reasons to Love Twitter:
As a Twitterer from way back in the day (offline translation: 6 weeks ago), it's been fascinating to watch this service ebb and flow. Or, at least, ebb and flow with the people who I'm friends with on the service.
I resisted Twitter for a while.

Chris Brogan was on it, and wanted me to join, so one day I sent him an SMS telling him I was at the train station.

I didn't get it.

Then I joined.

Added friends, yet again, on yet another social network.

But this time it was different.

Although I had thought that it would be silly to post about what I was doing every minute of the day, I found that I could send out a question to my friends and get a quick answer.

There is a living and breathing community here. It's not static. It's alive!

I asked Casey to join. She hasn't yet.

I told her, "Resistance is futile."

I thought that was funny.

I hope she joins soon.
