Twitter Experiment Over

I tried. I really did. To be ‘social’ that is. Truth be told, it is not possible to be social to any personal extent when you are limited to… (wait for it) … written words.

Yes, I said it. The delivery of a message, no matter how short and the ensuing exchange does not make for a social interaction in any real sense.

There is no nuance of non-verbal cues, no tone, no expression.  And written words are immensely inefficient at facilitating a true dialogue.

So, the social media experiment that is Twitter is dead for me. It’s good to check emergency closings and link to news. But it’s not much of a social tool.

You need to meet people in real life for that.
