I passed a Twitter milestone yesterday -- 1,000 tweets. It may seem impressive, but considering I've been a registered user since June of 2007 and there are many people out there with 10 times as many tweets, it hardly ranks as something very remarkable.
But Twitter has definitely grown on me. When I first started, I didn't appreciate it at all -- I remember telling some people during a panel discussion at Bentley that I liked to write "long," thanks in large part to blogging, and 140-character tweets didn't seem to be a very useful medium for communicating deep thoughts. I've come around to realize that Twitter is useful for communicating different types of thoughts, and now that I use it with my BlackBerry and iPod Touch, really appreciate its mobility -- you certainly can't blog that effectively using a cell phone!
