Twittering Nonsense

This seems a funny thing to post, maybe a bit hypocritical even, given the broadcast nature of blogs, but I think it's funny. I work in an environment where "twitter" seems to be the latest fad. Rather than post a long rant about it, I think this video from Current TV will tell you nicely a) what twitter is (if you don't already know) and b) what I think of twitter (which you don't yet know).

Funny post but I'm sticking up for Twitter. For climbers, it's a brilliant way to keep up to date with crag/problem/route conditions (you can post from your mobile) and it provides a forum for sharing beta, links and injury tips.

OK, 90% of the people that tweet are pretty uninteresting but you can follow news headlines and other climbers. Most importantly, Twitter is a great displacement activity - Essay? What essay?

ps Must have just missed you at Tom's. Great night but v. blurry! Heehee!
