I must say, I’ve become addicted to Twitter. Twitter has become my daily tabloid, where all the news, gossips and blind items are fed. All you gotta do is follow the right people (like me, wink2x). Sometimes I find myself spending too much time refreshing my browser tab, waiting for new twits to show up. I don’t recommend that though, unless you’re that bored. If you’re using Firefox, there’s an excellent, unobtrusive plugin called Twitterfox that keeps you updated on what your fellow twitter-ers are up to while you’re actually doing something productive.
With all the Internet ‘wars’ currently going on (which I sense are slowly subsiding), Twitter has certainly given me an idea on where people stand on each issue. It’s funny because it’s become some sort of a delayed instant messenger conference on steroids. Indeed, it’s a hell lot easier to say something tactless on Twitter than in a live chat window. People are gutsier in non-real-time situations. The lesson is if you follow someone on Twitter, it doesn’t necessarily require you to be in good terms. That’s what democracy is about. Twitter has taken gossip and catfights to a whole new playing field.
