Since everyone is talking about Twitter, I might as well do it too. Basically, I agree with everything Saul Hansell of the New York Times said about why Twitter annoys him. And, I would add to that, that all the current Twitter hype is a classic case of the emporer’s lack of new clothes.
Okay, you ask, then why do I call myself Dog Twitterer? In a word, or two or three, ass covering and laziness. Several months ago, I decided to give Twitter a shot even though I found its appeal incomprehensible. I thought the act of tweeting might help me see what it was all about and change my mind. Also, I remembered being the girl who didn’t see how Google was ever going to make a profit (not that I was alone on that) and I thought that, just in case, I should try to corner the market on dog twittering.
But I stand before you today to tell you that Twitter has no clothes and I need a new online name. To hell with dog twittering.
I want my new blog name to be doggy, original and not Scottie specific. I’m open to suggestions if you have any, but please, nothing past tense Twitter like Dog Twat. I’m so over it all.
P.S. I also totally agree with the comments on the Saul Hansell piece. Teenagers absolutely do not twitter. they recognize its sheer uselessness. Over and out.
