I set up a Twitter account last October....and promptly forgot about it. But this week I've had a number of emails from people telling me they're following me....very nice, if I'd had something to Twitter about. And why did people suddenly pick up on me now?
I'm not sure I 'get' Twitter, or will be bothered/sufficiently disciplined to use it to any degree - but I do seem to be following a couple of dozen Twitterers now, and I suppose this will give me something else to do in between lumps of work and academic stuff.
If you want to follow my ramblings, look out for LeapfrogMark.
I predict though that Twitter will be a pretty short-lived phenomenon - hugely popular now....but for how long.?
