In one of my first articles, Green Twitter – Environmental Resources, I mentioned that I was “addicted to” and “dependent” on Twitter. In the comments, Ari Herzog asked why I was addicted to twitter. That question made me think a little and I realized that addicted wasn’t the right word. Obviously, I can live without Twitter and admittedly I would be depressed if it no longer existed, but I would move on. (I am addicted to the Internet, however, and don’t know how I would get over the loss of it).
So, I’ve been putting a lot of thought into what it is about Twitter that I like so much. Self-promotion? No. Networking? No. Reporting what I’m eating? No. Hearing what cool people the so called A-Listers are hanging out with? Definitely NO.
