I guess I must admit being wrong. My initial reaction to Twitter was based on a present frame of reference without anticipating that an existing frame of reference can be changed by new experiences.
I have discovered I like to keep Twitter open in a side bar while I do other things (see image). This is a capability built into Flock (see image). I have also discovered that Twitter is down A LOT (see image) and you will not necessarily know this until after you carefully craft a message in < 140.
Man, my posts are getting short. Must be the Twitter experience. (Twitter address – so I feel the pressure to post).
