Month in Tweets


Lately, Twitter has become a better platform for me to describe what I am feeling/thinking as well as what I am doing. This is partly the reason for my lack of blogging. Why take a larger amount of time writing a blog entry when I can quickly text anything I want to Twitter? It's a quick blurb of no more than 140 characters, and taken together my tweets may also paint a distinct picture of who I am. Since I haven't blogged in about a month, I will try to recount it through my tweets, though I will exclude retweets (those tweets written by others that I post on my page) and one's with links to other websites.

Oh, I don't know...so that your life doesn't become documented only by your impulses? So that you can sit back and reflect on how things effected you in the long run? So that you can see the bigger picture? So that you can practice your writing skills?

And I agree, but can't a quick, impulsive blurb say the same about someone than a long, thought out entry?

I think a tweet can definitely say something about someone, but I don't think it has the ability to say the same thing as something longer can. If twitter could do that, none of our novels would be longer than 10 pages!

oh of course! I was merely trying something new to recount my month rather than the same format.
