Try as I might, I have not been able to get into Twitter. And I believe I should be trying simply because of the significant impact the app has had on the social Web community in the last few months. Most headlines have been dominated either by the explosions of Facebook or Twitter. Facebook I had no problem getting into (as my wife knows better than most), but Twitter is eluding me.
Here's why: I think that for me to gain the most benefit out of Twitter I need to be online, uninterrupted, 90% of my day. And the problem is that I'm simply not. The nature of my work and my life means that my Web time, although significant when bunched together, is sporadic and often made up of short bursts of time between meetings, on the road, at home before and after supper, etc.
Twitter demands my attention, and I have no spare attention. Am I right or have I missed the point entirely?
