Over the past year I’ve thought of micro-blogging-communications mashup Twitter as the rough equivalent of a blog post. For some time now, I’ve even republished my Tweets here in place of posting proper blog entries. It just seemed to make sense as my schedule got too crowded to sit down and bang out thoughtful posts on a regular basis.
But Twitter is not blogging. It’s more like archived instant messaging through the looking glass.
So that means no more daily round-up of Tweets here (if I turned off Twitter Tools, correctly, that is) and a return to blogging about things other than Twitter. No, I haven’t given up on Twitter, it’s just not as interesting as a platform as it was to me months ago. But things tend to run in cycles so I’m sure I’ll come back sometime. Or I’ll just wire up all my Twitter friends through my Friendfeed like some have done and move on.
