At first I didn’t see a point to using Twitter – mainly because I don’t pay for text messaging on my phone and I didn’t want to visit the Twitter site on a regular basis. Then I started working from home and had IM open all day. Twitter’s IM functionality was very handy and so I jumped on board.
For a while now, Twitter’s IM functionality has been disabled – but now I don’t want to lose touch and so I find myself visiting the Twitter site. The questions is – how much longer are we all going to put up with this nonsense?
Now, while FriendFeed is awesome – and well worth checking out (see my page), it’s not a replacement for a site that lets me IM my quick messages – like Twitter did. So, what do I do? Do I drop that means of communicating? Do I lose touch with those I keep up with on Twitter? Or do I subscribe to a bunch of FriendFeeds and just forgo the communication side of things?
I don’t have an answer – I’m just ranting and sharing 🙂
