Twitter to many people means many different things.
To me Twitter means chatting with "friends" and finding out bits of information along the way, but I am constantly having to re-evaluate how I feel about the whole thing.
I have had periods where it has been amazingly good fun but then times when I have not enjoyed it so much, like now, when I have started to take things personally if things are said as a joke and I did not think it was very funny,or offended if I saw someone that I follow and is a friend talking to people and not talking to me.
I guess here the saying comes in "familiarity breeds contempt"
I realise now that Twitter has not to be taken too personally, and in fact the moment you do you are almost doomed.
A lot of people have been commenting on "Twitter Jail" lately where you get booted off for too many tweets, some have made duplicate accounts so that they can get around this problem,
I admit I did think about doing the same, however decided against this after realising that Twitter is actually correct to kick us off for too many tweets, as conversations are not really what the Twitter idea was, more a sharing of information.
Secondly I realised that if I was allowed free reign I would like everything else in my life become addicted, and any addiction will ultimately become destructive.
When I first started to use Twitter, it was important to me to have as many followers as possible, however now I am in the situation of having quite a few, I find that it becomes quite difficult to follow what is being said anymore.
I have my favourites "Tweeters" and like to think that I have made some good friends on Twitter but over the next few day's I shall be cutting my follower levels in a hope that those left are people that I enjoy tweeting with and more to the point enjoy tweeting with me.
Which I believe is the whole idea.
Your turn, what does Twitter mean to you?
