One of the features I like about Twitter is that it provides a middle ground, for items worth mentioning but not worth blogging.
(Actually, I should probably impose a Twitter-like character limit on my blogging and write far more posts, because that’s what readers want, but that offends my inclination. I’m working on that disconnection. OK, I acknowledge that disconnection.
(I’m fighting the same issue regarding my video posts. Later, I’m posting a revised first in a series, down to 2 minutes from the original 5.
(But already, you see my problem with short posts; they’re hard to do with three-paragraph parenthetical asides. Hell, just the words “three-paragraph parenthetical asides” would kill most of a tweet, right? )
But, I digress. Oh, do I digress. Anyway ...
The convenience of the tweets is great, but they do present content that I sometimes wish survived more than the couple hours that a tweet does.
So with this post, and others to come occasionally, I thought I’d gather a few of those tweets, and hope that they hang together.
