PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: How tweet it is. ♥ Austin Photographer

So, I jumped onto the whole Twitter thing today. But I still don’t get it.  Much like I didn’t get blogging just a few short years ago. It sounds really hip and all, but can someone clue me into to this new “microblogging” thing?  I mean, isn’t just a teensy bit narcissistic to think that anyone really cares what I’m doing at any given moment during the day? Really, my life isn’t that interesting:

Fed kids breakfast.

Got puked on.

Changed clothes.

Started *another* load of laundry.

Did dishes.

Got puked on again.

And so on and so on…

Isn’t there such a thing as too much communication?

    Facebook does the same thing and a whole lot more. I’m surprised there’s no Pinkletoes presence on FB. It’s quite the addiction. You’d be surprised at the folks you’ll find…lots of the old Hornsby gang, high school peeps, family (my mom is just as addicted as I am!). You should check it out. I’ll be your friend! ;)

    ya know, I think I do have a fb profile (my space, too) but I was never able to keep up. I’m sure it’s going to be the same fate for me& twitter, too:(

    LOLOL!!! I’m on Twitter, too… and I totally agree! I must not be part of the “cool kids” or something because I never know what to say. I’m on Facebook, but it’s a little redundant to update Facebook status since most of those people are also on my Myspace and Twitter contacts. Holy crow! I feel like I should do different updates on the different sites!!

    Twitter: Just updated my myspace status…
    Myspace: On my way to update Twitter status…
    Facebook: You already know what the hell I’m doing.

    Ha! That has been my aversion to twitter as well….I just do not do anything too terribly interesting during the day! ( although we do need to quit playing phone tag one of these days, and if you post to twitter, I’ll know when I can catch you!

    OMD, Angelina…that is priceless!

    I didn’t understand it at all a few months ago, but I passed my 1000th update today, oddly enough. I’ve really enjoyed it as a way to get in touch with people on the spot without having to send a full email or bug with a phone call. It’s also been good for a lot of networking and laughs! Oh, and I just added you!

    YES! (there is such a thing as too much communication.) My business is very small and handmade, and still I have 30-50 email to answer a day. Plus I blog… and I am reachable by blackberry at all hours of the day and night. One more thing might just put me over the edge!

    When you’re new on twitter, it can seem pointless. It gains value as you start following more folks and engaging in the conversation that ensues. It would be a great way to market your photography and the classes that you teach (if you’re still doing that). Follow some local folks and other photographers and see what’s going on in that network. Here in Columbus, OH our news folks and PR types are VERY active. I love having the NBC4, science museum, the local tea cafe a few clicks away.

    Facebook is another good marketing tool. If you add the twitter app to facebook, your twitter updates feed facebook. That makes it easy. I boycott MySpace because their site design makes me want to throw up.

    No sch thing as too much communication. Hehe.

    P.S. I’m already following you! Better update often! ;)
