In the past few days there has been growing buzz about a relatively new website, Twitter. The site allows you to post a caption describing what you are doing right now. Officially “Twitter is a community of friends and strangers from around the world sending updates about moments in their lives.” I first discovered it when visiting Matt Brett’s blog and was curious to find out more. Over the last few days I have kept spotting more and more new blog posts about it, so I didn’t want to feel left out.
I think the idea is just another step in a direction internet applications are currently heading in. But I like it. It gives you that ultra connected techy info overload feel. You can be sure that soon I will have put a twitter on this blog. However is this yet more nonsense on the Internet? I can’t help feeling that finding out what people had for breakfast is a little useless. PR Blogger discusses the issue more here. User generated content and control are buzz themes of today’s websites so is this where the Internet is heading? Will our lives soon be available on a dashboard webpage?
