Twitter distractions

I realized my Twittering has temporarily slowed down my blogging. I’m not really sure whether this is good or bad, but I know I have less Twitter followers than blog and feed readers so I’m going to try to even all my posting out between my blog, Twitter, and my tumblelog.

I’m finding that Twitter is working great for my life blogging initiative, but the service is extremely limited when it comes time to construct some deeper thoughts. Being limited to 140 characters is restrictive, but has also been forcing me to distill my ideas.

So far I’ve met some interesting new people via Twitter and had some great hybrid communications using Twitter itself, Twitter direct messages, and email. Not sure this is an efficient way to communicate, but it’s been educational!
