It's the same old story for me - an Internet social media bandwagon comes along and by the time I overcome my distaste at being associated with anything too "trendy" the bandwagon has rolled on.
So this evening I joined Twitter. This of course means that the gold rush days of the Twitterati are truly over. The dust storms are blowing, the wells are running dry and even the homesteaders will be moving on soon.
I hope Twitter realise what they have unleashed allowing me to join their community. It means that there will be thousands of people just like me - "Twitter? - God no, thats just too popular for me!" - who are finally relenting and joining up only to post such inspirational tweets as "I am sitting eating my lunch and it is nice" or "Cool - I am now a follower of Stephen Fry!" ( Along with a million or so other little tweeters).
Well Im not going to follow Stephen Fry unless he follows me - you hear that Stephen Fry? Hmmm ... maybe I should tweet him just to make sure he's got the message....
