I have been meaning to ask my audience if they use Twitter and explain to me why. I was also going to ask for reasons why *I* should become a Twitterer or Twittite or what ever you call someone who Twitters. I have had that post in my drafts folder now for months. Today, I ran across a blog post by Louis Gray where he asks the question and does it a lot better that I would have.
I broke down and set up a FaceBook account some months ago and still struggle with why. I find MySpace more to my liking because my "friends" are mostly people that I have known for years and years. I met many of those people back in the 80's and early 90's when I was heavily involved in BBSes and BBS chat systems. Unlike Scoble and many other much higher profile bloggers, when my work day is done, I don't typically spend my free time poking around Facebook, MySpace, or other social networking functions. I have hobbies that have nothing to do with computers and technology and I like it that way. One exception - I leave my IM apps open quite often, but I have been using IM apps for 10+ years now and they have an obvious use to me.
Go read Louis' post because he frames it pretty well and I have the exact position that he has. Then let me know if you use Twitter and if you think it would benefit me or the community to be involved.
