Toronto Mike Tweets on Twitter

twitterIt makes sense that someone who has blogged daily for almost seven years would dig Twitter. I see Tweets on Twitter as micro-blogging, a nice complement to the junk I'm posting here at

At first I was treating Twitter as a sort of RSS feed, auto-tweeting to alert followers to a new entry here. Now, I'm ready to kick it up a notch, with stand-alone Tweets above and beyond what I post here.

Now that I'll be using Twitter more, I've added a Twitter page to this site. will display my last 40 tweets. Of course, you can follow me on Twitter at

It's time to kick this Twitter thing up a notch... or two.

Think of it as mobile micro blogging.

And drop the others, like Facebook.

Or, do what I do, and have twitter feed into all the others (I have more of an audience and more people responding to my twitter posts on Facebook than I do people responding to my twitter account directly...)

I dunno man...this twitter thing seems ridiculous to me.

Since tweets have a hard character limit (I think it's 140?), most people will use a URL shortening service in order to get their URLs into their tweets and still have room.

I tried the Twitter thing, but felt totally isolated on it when I saw all the other conversations going on around me. I did, however, notice that you were following me, Mike, before I closed my account there.

I much prefer Plurk ( because people can reply to your 140char posts in a thread and all your friends are on one timeline that updates itself.
