almost all of whom I would otherwise lose touch with because they're
simply too far away - a different city, a different country, a
different hemisphere. Twitter provides a casual, face-to-face-level
of communication that's like chatting as you pass in a hall, the
street, the park, the pub...
I also use it to find and share information and developments in and
around publishing (one of my main teaching areas), law, photography,
web and app development, and other random things, and also to get in
touch with people with similar interests. It ISN'T a replacement for
any real-world form of communication. It is a NEW form of
communication that sits comfortably and productively alongside other
things. It is also fine for anyone to ignore it, of course. Nobody
has to use it, and nobody should feel pressured into trying it if
they don't want to.
I'm @thatkeith on Twitter BTW, if anyone's interested. :-)
