A Little Privacy Please?

What You Doin'?

What You Doin'?

So Today I finally discovered what Twitter.com is all about; It is website used as a status updater for people to “follow”.  Now, I am not judging those who use it, because hey, some people either want to be seen, and/or for some it can be useful for people who are constantly checking their cell phones for the next email and/or text message. For me, a little blog and a private facebook and myspace account with a cell phone do me just fine.

Something about anyone seeing my every mood and availability in real time on the web makes me feel more spotted than the satellites in the sky make me feel. After seeing and internalizing Eagle Eye, not only did it make me want to cancel my cable and social website accounts, I also wanted to get rid of my cell phone and even now, I find myself occasionally powering off my brand new cable box that for some reason was coerced upon me having in order for my television to function.

I enjoy utilizing the web, I truly do. I can share information, network, inspire others, research, get hired for jobs, find jobs to apply to, pay bills, find old friends and many other resourceful reasons that just simply make my life easier. However, Twitter?, not interested in the obvious,” Guess what I am doing now!” because just in case you don’t already know who I am dating or who I have flirted with, what my favorite books and music are and what friends I have, here is a little more information…

    Hi,

    Haven’t dropped by for a while, and this post did make me smile. I totally agree with your sentiments, however I am an avocat for Twitter and other social media on the basis that it connects people who otherwise may never have met…charities looking for volunteers, people sharing insights, connecting local communities etc etc. Of course, if you are just using it to tell the world who you are flirting with or dating then sure, it can be thrown the pile of voyeuristic and narcissistic mediums like facebook (but again – even that can be used for good as well!)

    Check out http://twitter.com/oxfamgb or http://twitter.com/intaid

    (I don’t work for either organisation by the way!)
