Follow back, soldiers
In my state of forcible absentia, I turned to Twitter as an outlet for my musings. When I first signed up three-plus years ago, it didn’t occur to me to utilize it as a means of fostering conversation, or a source of up-to-the-minute info. And I don’t just mean breaking-celebrity-deaths. For instance, I happened to be following the organizers of a house show I was planning to attend, and thusly saw more accurate set times posted than the ones reflected on the event’s Facebook page. I know Twitter is giving us (and historians, marketers, and academics) a trove of information to mine about our moods and historical trends, and can serve to foment revolution, but it’s the little things like knowing when and where to show up to something that directly improves my quality of life in a tangible way.
Anyway, follow me here. And then talk to/at/with me.
