That is what my wife calls me. She wonders what in the world I could be doing on this crazy site. My friends make fun of me, and my wife makes sure I’m not following any good looking girls And you know what, I was a skeptic at first. I got onto twitter because as a tech guy, I needed to see what all the hype was about.
So I leaped in a posted a comment… nothing. So I found some friends (or 1 friend) who was on there and looked at what they used it for. Still I had no idea what to use this for. And then it hit me. I was moving to Medicine Hat. I found a blogger who was on twitter, and followed him. Then asked if there were any more “tech savvy” Medicine Hat residents. And that’s how it all started.
Now as I build more followers, and follow more interesting people I start to see the use of Twitter. I can keep up to date on who, and what I want to. I have some tech guys like Leo Laporte, some 49ers players like Takeo Spikes, and now some fantasy football guys. And when I post a question on insurance, I get a bunch of new insurance companies following me.
So is Twitter the next big thing? I guess it depends on how you use it. If you comment on how you had a cheese sandwich for lunch, or about Ashton Kutcher, I will probably unfollow you. But if you add content, then welcome to the twitter universe. As for me, feel free to follow me, you will find me on twitter as @kingtyler.
Whats next for me you ask? I need a new cell phone. iPhone, Palm Pre, or some HTC Windows phone. As of now I have no idea. But I will decide in the next month.
