A Noobie on Twitter
by Jamison Koehler on April 28, 2010
Yesterday I posted about my ambivalence on joining Twitter. Today I joined.
Mark Bennett was the first person to welcome me. Scott Greenfield was the second, and, true to form, his welcome consisted mostly of an admonition about the non-commercial purpose of Twitter. (This blog is apparently known for its marketing.) Windy Pundit and Mirriam Seddiq were next with the welcomes, with Seddiq proclaiming that the party was now on.
Then Gideon chimed in with the complaint that I was clogging up the Twitter stream. Goodness. Five minutes on Twitter and I had already committed a faux pas. This after I had promised to lurk a while until I got the hang of things. That’s okay, he reassured me. “You’re a noob.”
What I said yesterday was absolutely right. The thing is addicting.
